Microsoft cloud tools to be deployed to 500-plus staff

WorkSafe has kicked off a $40 million plan to address "technology debt" with a project to implement new Microsoft workplace systems.

Office 365, SharePoint, Azure and Windows 10 will be deployed to support 500-plus staff with a single cloud platform to work and communicate.

New Zealand’s primary workplace health and safety regulator is working with CCL-Revera to deliver the project, which is scheduled for completion later this year.

Mike Foley, chief digital and information officer at WorkSafe, said the transition was consistent with government’s cloud first policy to improve services and deliver substantial cost savings.

“Smart cloud platforms provide the enterprise agility we need to become a world-class regulator,” said Foley.

“The less time we spend on administration and bending legacy systems to new forms of work, the more focus we bring to improving health and safety performance.”

Last month, Reseller News reported WorkSafe told a Parliamentary committee that lack of investment in technology services over the past five years had built up technology debt, introducing risk.

"These risks include technology platforms that are no longer supported by the vendors, constraints on the ability of WorkSafe to change its practices due to the inflexibility of the technology platforms currently utilised, and increases in costs to operate and maintain services from third-party suppliers," the agency said.

A $40 million, four-year information systems strategic plan was formulated to address the issues.

"Current priorities are to remediate the core desktop environment, network, human capital management/payroll and operational management services," it said. "These are foundations for the implementation of the replacement case management solution planned for later in 2019."

WorkSafe said current "foundation layers" were not fit-for-purpose with aspects such as the desktop services being out of vendor support.

As part of the new project, VMware’s Workspace One Digital workplace platform will provide secure multi-device access to WorkSafe applications.

Andrew Allan, CEO of CCL-Revera, said his company won the competitive tender in a joint bid with Revera late last year.

“The tender process confirmed the complementary nature of our businesses and the value clients place on a broad mix of services and capabilities delivered from a single engagement and support engine.”

Foley said CCL-Revera ticked all the boxes, including migration planning, platform setup, staged transition, user support and ongoing management.

Announcing the merger last month, Allan said the move was motivated by a market shift that saw more clients seeking out a single supplier to cover all their bases.
