Dialog awarded place on major Cloud Services Panel

The Minister of Finance has announced that Dialog Information Technology has been accepted as a panellist to the whole-of-government panel for the provision of cloud services to Australian Government agencies.

The panel enables Government to deliver services more efficiently, as well as provide services that are more responsive to business and community needs.

The Department of Finance stated that use of the Cloud Services Panel is optional for agencies at all levels of government, however, in accordance with the cloud computing policy, government departments and agencies are required to adopt cloud services for new and refreshed ICT capabilities where it decides the cloud services are fit for purpose, provide adequate protection of government data and deliver value for money.

The panel covers:

  1. Software as a Service (SaaS):
    • Customer Relationship Management.
    • ERP.
    • IT Service Management.
    • Productivity Solutions.
  1. Platform as a Service (Paas):
    • Application Deployment.
    • Web Hosting.
  1. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS):
    • Compute.
    • Storage.
  1. Cloud specialist services:
    • Integration.
    • Optimisation.

Dialog was chosen due to its Cloud-based offerings with partners such as Google, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, together with a strong capability to plan, implement and review Cloud initiatives.

Dialog is also on the whole-of-government mobile applications panel (SON2589631). Dialog was chosen due to its extensive track record in delivering mobile solutions. A notable example is Dialog’s award winning FireReady application which allows users to receive push notifications about Incidents, Emergencies, Total Fire Bans and Fire Danger Ratings occurring in user defined locations or their current location. FireReady uses Google Maps, Push Notifications and integrates with social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. It runs in the cloud using Amazon Web Services (AWS) with Elastic Load Balancing for high availability and state wide access.

Dialog can plan, implement and review cloud initiatives and mobile applications irrespective of the chosen technology.

The Cloud Services Panel has an initial two year term, with options to extend for a further four years. Visit this website for more information on the panel.
