After evaluating various vendors through the New Zealand government procurement process, DOC selected ContentWorX—the ECM cloud solution developed by TEAM Asparona, a joint venture between TEAM Informatics and DeloitteAsparona—based on multiple Oracle technologies, including Oracle WebCenter Content, Oracle WebCenter Portal, Oracle BPM Suite, Oracle Database, and Oracle Identity Management, including Oracle Access Management Suite and Oracle Unified Directory.
TEAM Asparona is one of three vendors on a New Zealand government closed panel providing ECM as a Service. The other panel vendors are Intergen with a Microsoft SharePoint-based solution and OpenText.
DOC ran a pilot for the ECM cloud solution over three months before rolling it out to 137 offices across the country. The entire project took two years to complete, though DOC rolled out the solution in just four months, on time and within budget.
“Thanks to TEAM Asparona’s high quality ECM solution and Oracle’s support, we delivered one of the department’s most successful IT projects,” said Lou Sanson, director general, Department of Conservation, New Zealand. “By adopting Oracle-technology-based ECM cloud service, users can efficiently share information and collaborate internally, supporting our strategic goal of providing strong conservation leadership within the country.”
