Technology One has just won the rights to be the software arm of a five-year, $20 million deal with the Victorian Government to develop the Land Registry Titles Department's technology infrastructure.
Partnering with Fujitsu Australia, which as the prime contractor will provide the hardware, Technology One will design the application software the Department needs to make its information and searching services electronic. To this end, Technology One's brief included the incorporation of Web site access so that birth certificates and land titles can be accessed more readily. This includes a three-tier client server application, which will be centred on the software company's Application Development Framework technology.
Enduring an eight-month selection process, Technology One's managing director Adrian Di Marco credited the win against stellar competition, such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, First State NSW and Aspect Computing, to the software company's experience in the government market and the software itself. "We have a proven track record in undertaking large-scale, fixed-time, fixed-price software projects and, specifically, we have experience in developing a highly successful Land Titles application solution for the Queensland Government," stated Di Marco.
In the initial 18 months, Technology One will be responsible for the construction of the software applications from the ground up. Following this, the developers will support the remaining installations and be involved in upgrades and enhancements.
