Dept of Agriculture selects TechnologyOne for SaaS solution

The Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment (DAWE) has moved its finances to TechnologyOne’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, making it the first ‘Tier 1’ department to move its finance system to SaaS.

Ed Chung, CEO of TechnologyOne, said the Department will receive all the benefits of software as a service, including stronger cybersecurity and software with the latest features. Chung added that the Department of Agriculture’s new finance solution will be deployed into TechnologyOne’s IRAP PROTECTED assessed SaaS solution, providing materially higher cybersecurity posture at no additional cost.

“This win is another proof point of the longevity of our 33-year journey and 99% customer retention, as we continue to deliver technology which is innovative and futureproof. As an Australian company, we are proud that our platform will find immediate efficiencies and modernise back-end processes, providing important improvements for hardworking staff on the frontline,” said Chung.

TechnologyOne’s Australian technology will support the Department’s modernisation program, which is forecast to drive efficiencies across the import and export of primary industries. This will in turn support Australian producers and drive economic growth.

“It is pleasing to see our long-term investment in becoming IRAP assessed, along with our continued commitment to data sovereignty, will support to the government at this time,” said Chung.

TechnologyOne has a record of supporting the government sector across federal, state and local jurisdictions. DAWE and TechnologyOne are currently working together to migrate the on-premise environment to SaaS, with the process expected to be completed by the middle of the year.
