The Victorian Government’s Department of Justice and Regulation has handed ASG Group a milestone contract for the provision of a safe platform for the cloud hosting of applications that were chosen.
It is understood that the price is among the most critical contracts of the nature for ASG Group in Australia so far, that likely puts the worth of the deal at the area of thousands of dollars throughout the course of the agreement.
Broadly, the long term, multi-year contract will see ASG and its associate, Macquarie Telecom, supply the nation’s Department of Justice and Regulation using a elastic, cloud-based agency to encourage and operate a variety of programs.
ASG said the cloud-based support will comprise adjustable “dial up down + dial” pricing, with the capability to roll-on and roll-off programs as needed.
As part of the agreement, ASG will even help the Department deliver to the Government’s cloud-first coverage, which finds it use platform, infrastructure, and also software-as-a-service for both encoded and protected software.
The Victorian Department of Justice and Regulation is one of seven departments in the Victorian public sector. It functions in one of the most sensitive areas of the Victorian authorities, claiming a number of the highest levels of security and governance base case demands.
The Department claims more than 8,800 workers in support agencies and over 50 business services and across Victoria.
ASG Group’s chief operating officer Dean Langenbach stated the new cloud support contract wouldn’t only provide the “highest levels of security and performance” into the Department, but should also create material efficiencies for the country Government thing.
“The Victorian Government is at the forefront of embracing the Federal Government’s security classification program and the ASG-DJR contract is a really early example of the transformation that will be possible and, indeed, required,” Langenbach explained.

The deal comes just over a month after the integrator, that will be possessed by Japan’s Nomura Research Institute (NRI), won a $16.5 million contract with Queensland water utility firm, Unitywater, to migrate each of its IT into Microsoft Azure public cloud.
As part of that five-year arrangement, ASG can also be providing ongoing management of Unitywater’s infrastructure and software. The arrangement allows for a couple of extension.
ASG has been making a concerted attempt to discuss its major contract wins since openly taking aim the big IT players at Australia’s business and government distance after unveiling its new consolidated brand following the completion of its post-acquisition integration using SMS Management & Technology.

ASG Group finished its $124 million purchase of the subsequently publicly-listed SMS Management & Technology in late September.
The purchase came after a drawn out bidding war involving fellow publicly-listed Australian IT services player, DWS (ASX:DWS) and ASG Group.
Together with the new and integration branding comes a new focus on the top end of the market that is largely populated by big venture and Federal Government clients, and the international systems integrators that habitually service them.
