Blue Crystal Solutions to Provide South Australian Government Agencies Cloud Management Services

Blue Crystal Solutions (BCS) has been accepted to provide Hyperscale Cloud Management Services to South Australian government agencies via the government’s Managed Platform Services Panel.

To simplify cloud adoption and accelerate digital transformation for state government and agencies, the Hyperscale Panel provides a centralised approach to access and procure cloud services or third-party management of such services from local, trusted suppliers.

This panel is part of the South Australian government’s digital transformation strategy to leverage new technologies that create opportunities for new ways of working, in turn developing and delivering better services for South Australian people and businesses.

“The time is now for South Australian agencies to begin or accelerate their cloud journeys. The critical role of digital technologies in modernising and transforming public services is beyond just transitioning current processes to online – it’s about adapting to the digital age and ultimately delivering better services to our community,” – Vito Rinaldi, Managing Director, Blue Crystal Solutions.

“As a local business, with 17+ years servicing the IT needs of the South Australia Government, we bring strong expertise in on-premise, public and hybrid cloud environments, with cloud experience that spans multiple customers including highly-regulated industries. Our experience and locality mean we understand how government policies need to be implemented as well as the regulatory and privacy requirements to protect data and information. Second to this is our aim to double our South Australian workforce over the next 24 months and provide more local jobs as we continue to adjust to business post COVID-19. As a passionate South Australian we want to do all we can to keep technology roles within our great state. Inclusion on the panel means we can achieve just that while helping our local government agencies streamline their transformation.”

Through this panel, BCS will provide and manage cloud services on Microsoft® Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform. These include Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Operating System Support and Application Support.

BCS’ cloud services use tools and AI to improve client operations and provide rapid delivery of cloud solutions while managing costs and performance, such as through their premiere all-in-one event monitoring and alerting tool, BlueDiamond. Their vast range of services are designed to help South Australian government agencies accelerate their cloud adoption, no matter where they are in the cloud journey – from architecting and migrating ICT workloads to the cloud to the re-architecting or repurposing of legacy applications. Supported by their holistic and personal approach to solving business problems, BCS ensure their service delivery is aligned to the agencies’ overall business strategy.

BCS has a strong track record working with state and federal government agencies in South Australia and Australia-wide. For more information on BCS’ public sector capabilities and experience, click here.
