Canberra-based Citadel Group (ASX:CGL) has scored another contract with a Queensland Government organisation for its software and managed service solutions.
The latest 10-year deal involves migrating the organisation to the Citadel IX cloud platform, 24/7 support, integration to business systems and the Kapish Productivity Suite.
It involves supporting more than 7,000 users and managing more than 25 terabytes of data. This follows on from Citadel’s coup last year with the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, which allowed for other state agencies to join under the same commercial terms.
Citadel’s IX cloud platform is based on Microsoft Azure, and counts more than 3,000 state and government users of the platform including Victorian Department of Treasury and Finance; Victorian Premier and Cabinet; Victorian Public Sector Commission; NSW Department of Finance, Service and Innovation; NSW Office of Sport; TAFE NSW; Baw Baw Council and Surf Coast Council.
“Citadel continues to commercialise its IP across key markets and our focus on ‘cloud first’ initiatives is driving this growth,” Citadel CEO, Darren Stanley, said. “Citadel has now over 24,000 users signed up to the Citadel-IX platform and premium support service, which complements the 110,000 on-premise government clients and more than 45,000 users we support on our proprietary IP systems in health.”
Citadel also revealed it was supporting infrastructure upgrade projects around the country, recently scoring a $2.4 million contract to provide collaboration services to the RAAF in NSW with two similar projects in the pipeline for FY19.
Its current work in the education sector was also driving further results, particularly on the back of its collaboration technologies core supplier arrangement with Deakin University. The $12 million three-year deal has been expanded to provide other advisory and logistic support services, which will add to material uplift to this expected revenue, according to the company.
Stanely said the pipeline of opportunities in key growth sectors spanning eHealth, defence and national security, was continuing to grow, exceeding historical run rates and strengthening confidence in its outlook.
“Our growing software-as-a-service portfolio and user base are providing strong recurring results and our continued investments in innovation and talent will further support our valued clients,” he said.
