Datacom Supports Queensland Government Cloud Trial with End-to-End Solution


As part of its ongoing focus on efficiency, and in line with its ICT strategy for the next five years, the Queensland State Government has implemented a plan to refurbish its ICT systems with a view to creating a more time and cost effective experience for government agencies and the community.



The Challenge

As part of its ongoing focus on efficiency, and in line with its ICT strategy for the next five years, the Queensland State Government has implemented a plan to refurbish its ICT systems with a view to creating a more time and cost effective experience for government agencies and the community. A key part of this strategy is to move away from owning technology assets towards an ICT “in the cloud” service model, which will eliminate the need for future costly upgrades and enhance user functionality. As a result, QGCIO have just completed a six-month trial of operating in a cloud environment, which included shifting from Windows XP to Windows 8.

The QGCIO team undertook the trial with the aim of testing the boundaries of a large enterprise operating wholly within the cloud and if this solution could be applied successfully across government’s operations. They are currently in the process of assessing the findings.

The Solution

The solution designed by Datacom was to create a functioning cloud office, including desktop management, new active directory (AD); domain name services (DNS), internet gateway services, web filtering, identity management, cloud storage, mail and apps in compliance with security requirements.
