PNG DICT Cloud Team Undergoes Technical Workshop with AWS Professional Services in Brisbane, Australia

The PNG Department of Information and Communications Technology in its Digital Government Division had their Government Cloud and Cloud DevOps teams sent for a technical workshop at the Amazon Web Servers (AWS) Professional Services office at Brisbane, Australia.

The AWS Professional Services is supporting in designing the operational framework and the development of the pilot Digital Government Projects that are led by the Department. DICT has been working closely with AWS for over 8 months to fulfill the Government’s Digital Transformation Agenda.

The one-week workshop addresses various aspects of operationalizing the Government Cloud Platform and includes establishing a cloud center of excellence (CCOE) for the Government on the best-practice approach to drive a cloud-enabled transformation to ensure cloud adoption success for the Government.

During the workshop, the technical team will review the e-Government portal build that the Department is driving including setting up the Cloud platforms for other pilot projects that the Department is supporting such as the e-Cabinet project, e-Police Clearance, and e-Procurement.z

The technical team is led by Government Cloud and Shared Services Manager Mr Glen Vitou DevOps Manager Mr. Joshua Pomaloh, and project partners from the Prime Minister and National Executive Council (PMNEC). Other stakeholders involved in this exercise include the ICT team from the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC) and the National Procurement Commission (NPC) on separate projects that DICT is supporting.

The Cloud technology has been fundamental in catalyzing digital transformation globally, however understanding the risks and working within a security framework and global standards, are key to protecting sovereign interests and this is where AWS have set the standards by working closely with Governments and Economies around the world to drive their digital transformation aspirations through their platform.

Neighboring economies such as Australia and New Zealand have strategically adopted the AWS Cloud Platform to advance their digital transformation agenda within the Public Service and Papua New Guinea sees this success as an opportunity to leverage those experiences and leapfrog its Government’s Digital Transformation Agenda by working closely with Global industry experts who have advanced experience driving this for other digitally advanced economies.
