Data#3 to replace Govdex File Sharing and Collaboration Solution

Australian technology provider, Data#3, has won a competitive public tender to create and manage a cloud-based file sharing and community collaboration solution for the Department of Finance.

Based on Microsoft Azure and Office 365, the new customised cloud service will replace the existing Govdex whole-of-government platform based on the Atlassian Confluence product, which has over 90,000 users.

Data#3 Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Laurence Baynham, commented, “We are delighted to work with the Department of Finance on this innovative initiative. It is a great example of how leveraging people and technology can help to drive digital transformation in the public sector. We look forward to assisting the Department in achieving their business goals.”

The core capabilities of the replacement service will include:

  • Real-time collaboration – members will be able to connect, share and work together using document sharing, real-time document co-authoring, and instant messaging.
  • Online profiles – members will be able to easily discover each other and work together by searching persistent profiles detailing the skills, experience and interests of each member.
  • Discoverable communities – members who administer a community will have the option of an open, semi-private, or private community. The level of access will determine the visibility of the community to other members who might want to be involved.
