Central finance agency deploys iCognition CM Cloud

The Australian Office of Financial Management (AOFM) has gone live with iCognition’s secure cloud-based Content Manager, EDRMSaaS, securing iCognition another long-term partnership with the Federal Government.

After undertaking an information management review for AOFM, iCognition updated its existing Content Manager configuration and transitioned the system to a future- proofed and highly secure IRAP-protected cloud-based system, EDRMSaaS. This provides AOFM with secure access to vital records from any device and any location.

As a central policy agency, the AOFM issues debt securities on behalf of the Australian Government. It manages its cash and debt portfolios, provides advice on a range of financial risks, and supports smaller lenders by making investments through securitisation markets. As such, records and content management are critical assets to this crucial Government agency.

Joe Mammoliti, iCognition’s Chief Executive Officer, said “By having a deep understanding of our client's people, systems and processes we were able to seamlessly transition AOFM from on-premises to iCognition’s secure cloud.

“Our EDRMSaaS Content Manager Cloud provides AOFM with a proven and secure SaaS solution that is the most advanced in the market. EDRMSaaS will continuously evolve and provide the best protection from increasingly sophisticated cyber threats.”

Having reviewed and analysed AOFM’s existing information management environment, iCognition recommended a re-engineering of their information architecture and configuration to streamline the capture and management of vital records. This also involved a remapping of records authorities and a cleansing of legacy and unused data, as well as setting new processes and procedures into place.

iCognition upgraded AOFM’s old system to Content Manager version 10.1 and transitioned the agency to the iCognition Cloud. This solution manages AOFM’s information to the highest available level of security, with assessment at the PROTECTED level by Information Security Registered Assessor Program (IRAP) and ISO 27001 certification.

The overall result is a more streamlined and future-proofed solution that enables AOFM to effectively capture and manage content across their enterprise.

AOFM joins iCognition’s other clients on the EDRMSaaS platform, including Australian Digital Health Agency, Department of the Treasury, Tasmanian Department of Natural Resources and Environment and clients in the university, financial and regulated industries market.
