The New Zealand Ministry of Economic Development will deploy OpenText Content Server to boost its information service management. The OpenText Enterprise Content Management (ECM) deployment, once completed, will provide the MED with full content lifecycle management for any type of electronic document, with a single central repository for storing, managing and organising documents.
“We’re excited about this opportunity to lead the way with a cutting edge solution. This will facilitate far better management of information and knowledge across the Ministry, and will pull together a number of fragmented and costly systems, saving us money over the long term,” says Simon Lawrence, spokesman for the Ministry of Economic Development.
Techtonics, an OpenText solutions provider in New Zealand, was awarded a four-year partnership with the MED to implement and support this new solution.
“Techtonics demonstrated that they can deliver the OpenText project cost-effectively into the future, with the added strength that as a New Zealand company they have an inherent understanding of our working environment and are committed to the long haul,” says Lawrence.
This is not the first New Zealand ministry rolling out OpenText using Techtonics, as the Department of Labour has also recently deployed the solution.
"The exponential growth in records and document management presents a challenge to any organisation but it places particularly huge demands on public sector organisations. Without effective data management systems in place, information can become incomplete, unavailable or unusable over time. We are delighted that OpenText has been selected by the MED to help support service provision to the public,” says Graham Pullen, vice president Asia Pacific, OpenText.
