Enterprise content management (ECM) specialist Objective has released a cloud-based version of its flagship information management platform to cater for small Australian government organisations without the financial or deployment resources to implement the solution inhouse.

Objective’s Objective ECM for Small Agencies comes preconfigured to meet federal and state public-sector information-management requirements such as the National Archives’ Digital Transition Policy. This include a preconfigured business classification scheme, security model, functional terms and disposal schedule to ensure compliance with information-management requirements.Objective

“We’ve made ECM accessible for small agencies by translating the information management standards into a compliant and easily deployed solution by preconfiguring the system for information management best practice,” Objective CEO Tony Walls said in a statement.

Preconfiguration of the complex ECM environment can save agencies up to six months of planning, design and deployment time, Walls said: “Essentially it’s an instant on solution,” he explained. “Delivered from the cloud as a managed service, this new offering removes the traditional barrier to entry of the capital budget allocation and also ensures predictability of operational expenses for the life of the solution.”

The platform is hosted within Australia to address data-sovereignty concerns, and managed on an ongoing basis by Objective Managed Services. A single, searchable document repository offers easier searching while ISO 27001 compliance and full audit logging support information-security requirements. The solution also includes Objective Executive for Tablet mobile access.

Taken together, the hosted platform offers a “pragmatic and manageable” ECM solution, the company said. – David Braue
