According to a spokesperson for the department,
IBM has won the contract for identity management.
Some 250,000 identities will be migrating.
Data#3 has been hired for the content filtering and email
archiving, which will use Symantec enterprise vault.
Dimension Data has received the meaty job of migrating the
government to the new system.
The government was unable as yet to provide pricing information for the deals. There will be no additional tender for Microsoft licences as the
government will use its existing whole-of-government Microsoft
licensing agreement for the program.
The departments and agencies whose users will be migrated onto the
centralised email platform are already using Exchange, but some installations
of IBM's Lotus Notes/Domino and Novell's GroupWise platforms remain throughout the state government.
