NZ public sector moves to the cloud

A pan-government agreement has been arranged between the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).

The agreement will support government agencies with moving to the cloud, and will result in substantial savings across the public sector for the initial three-year term.

“This system-wide approach is key to government’s digital services transformation as part of the shift to a digital economy and society,” said government chief technology officer Tim Occleshaw.

All public sector agencies will be able to access pricing that reflects the purchasing power of the NZ government, as well as products that are structured in a manner that aligns with how government wants to consume ICT services.

“Our vision is to create a single, coherent government ICT system that enables a radical transformation of public services. Our agreement with HPE is another step towards achieving this goal,” said Occleshaw.
