TechnologyOne emerges as dominant player in federal government, signing Federal Department of Agriculture and Water Resources

Australian tech giant TechnologyOne has increased its footprint in federal government, signing a $6.2 million deal with the Federal Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR).

DAWR will implement TechnologyOne’s OneGovernment solution, providing an end-to-end enterprise system that will underpin the entire organisation.

The OneGovernment solution, which meets the procurement objectives of DAWR, is a proven practice enterprise solution which manages corporate, operational, stakeholder and strategic management processes. The solution supports the current trend towards flexible work patterns, decentralised operations and geographically disparate offices, providing a device agnostic environment allowing staff to access the application on any device, anywhere, anytime.

“Our OneGovernment solution is a proven fit for the requirements of federal government agencies and departments, reducing the time, cost and risk associated with large enterprise implementations,” TechnologyOne’s Executive Chairman, Adrian Di Marco said.

“Our deep understanding and engagement with the government sector means we can deliver integrated, preconfigured solutions that provide proven business processes, streamline implementation and reduce associated time, cost and risk.”

The deal with DAWR builds on TechnologyOne’s continued momentum in the government space, with the tech giant recently signing the Federal Department of Treasury and the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The departments have implemented TechnologyOne’s enterprise SaaS solution in a shared services arrangement which is expected to eventually include upwards of 25 government departments.

The implementation at Treasury also marks the first government customer on TechnologyOne’s newly-developed industry specific cloud platform, which was built to cater for the unique security and operational requirements of federal government.

“The TechnologyOne GovCloud implements the detailed requirements surrounding the Australian Government’s Information Security Manual for Unclassified Data. Through our industry cloud solution, all agencies and departments on Treasury’s shared services arrangement will use a single version of the software,” Mr Di Marco said.

“We believe our SaaS model will serve the Australian government far more effectively, by simplifying the implementation process and its IT infrastructure, optimising the performance of its enterprise systems, and delivering enormous economies of scale and a future proof solution in a way that hosting providers will never be able to do.”
