Oracle announced that it has established a new whole-of-government (WofG) arrangement with the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA), to make it easier for government agencies to purchase Oracle products and services.
Oracle says the arrangement is set to bring increased cost-savings, efficiencies, and flexibility for government agencies (including state and territory governments) and taxpayers.
The arrangement spans Oracle’s entire hardware, software, cloud and services offerings. This includes integrated applications for sales, service, marketing, human resources, finance, supply chain and manufacturing, plus highly automated and secure cloud infrastructure featuring the Oracle Autonomous Database. Oracle’s local second-generation cloud regions in Sydney and Melbourne will also provide agencies with security, locally hosted data, and full onshore disaster recovery capabilities.
The arrangement gives government agencies access to competitive pricing, and comprehensive terms and conditions to deliver front and back office digital transformation.
“This arrangement with the DTA builds on our already strong partnership with Australian Federal Government and is set to make it easier for government agencies to move to the next stage of their digitally enabled whole-of-government transformations,” said Cherie Ryan, VP & Regional managing director, ANZ, Oracle.
“It comes at a time when Oracle continues to invest in the Australian market, including the recent openings of our Melbourne and Sydney second-generation cloud regions which offer public sector customers a secure, local and future ready migration path to the cloud.”
Damien McAullay, Key Account Director at Oracle said, “Oracle has been working with government for more than 40 years, delivering critical technologies, securely and at scale. Directly employing thousands of staff in Australia, and supported by our ecosystem of partners and consultants across the country, Oracle is equipped to provide the necessary scale, dedicated teams and credibility to deliver better outcomes for government and taxpayers.”
This agreement is part of the government’s agenda to transform ICT procurement to make it simpler, clearer and faster for agencies and industry to transact services and deliver better outcomes for the community.
