Key IS projects this year: Datacentre outsource; enterprise project management system; people information management system; regulatory business process; improvement Cost management continues to be a key driver of technology decisions for the council.

As in 2009, the economy will have little to no effect on ICT operational, project and staff budgets for the Christchurch City Council.

In the interest of keeping rates stable, cost management continues to be a key driver of technology decisions for the council. IT will be used to automate business processes and to provide timely, accurate and secure information, says Gavin Till, information management and communication technology manager.

“IT will be specifically targeted at a number of strategic themes and focused on customer/community service, workforce self service, information management and reporting, business process management, knowledge management and collaboration, for example.”

Key projects this year will include relocating the Council’s data centre management, implementation and deployment of an enterprise project management system and people information management system, and regulatory business process improvement. A VoIP rollout last year has been completed, and the IS team will continue to focus on ongoing projects, including ERP feature rollouts.
