IntegrationWorks has partnered with provider Revera and the Stack Alliance, as the specialist enterprise integration consultancy firm addresses growing demand in the New Zealand government space.
In a multi-vendor partnership aligned to the Revera cross-government Infrastructure-as-a-Service catalogue, the deal sees all parties focus creating better connectivity between on-premise, hybrid and cloud systems.
From an IntegrationWorks perspective, the company believes the agreement will help the company assist government agencies enhance the maturity of integration systems in partnership with Revera and other vendors signed into the Stack Alliance.
Spearheading the operation is IntegrationWorks Managing Director IntegrationWorks and CTO Ian Vanstone, and the local team of integration strategists, architects, developers and operations analysts.
“New Zealand government agencies have a growing appetite for digital transformation and cloud based offerings,” Vanstone says.
“With the speed of this transformation, there is a huge increase of disparate applications and legacy systems that are in need of a digital shift to be able to open up their data-sets both internally and externally.
“This allows them to compete on a global stage, externalise their data and appeasing the needs of the New Zealand community who want to access their government facilities and information online.
“The opening up and connecting of these digital channels and applications can only really be done successfully through integration layers, API’s and ESB platforms that we’ll be able to deliver in partnership with the multiple vendors and experts aligned to the Stack Alliance.”
The Stack Alliance is lead by Revera to form a group of ICT companies that offer services and solutions at different layers above infrastructure to government agencies in New Zealand.
Vanstone says the Stack Alliance allows for clients to have flexibility and choice over their vendors, while working with the best-of-breed service providers.
“High levels of transparency across vendor partners, collaboration, best practice and avoidance of vendor lock-in means that clients are able to work in a low-risk supplier environment that yields high-performance results,” he explains.
To meet market demand, Vanstone says the IntegrationWorks team will be kicking off projects with Stack Alliance partners.
“The team will be aligning closely with clients to develop integration strategy and road-mapping, designing integration layers through architecture and custom building integration platforms by utilising the IntegrationWorks devOps team while working closely with specialist development and architectural teams from other vendors,” he adds.
“Through collaboration, the Stack Alliance will deliver timely, efficient and market-leading services for government.”
In partnering with multiple middleware vendors such as IBM, MuleSoft, WSO2, RedHat and Oracle, Vanstone says IntegrationWorks is now able to cater for any requirements or preferences desired by the client and vendor partner alike.
