Government Shared Services - Collaboration and sharing across Government

  • OneGovCloud is a platform enabling colleagues across Government organisations to collaborate by sharing templates, consistent documentation, rapid insight into functional and technology areas and sharing lessons identified from their Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) transformation programmes. See the quick link button below to toolkits:

Note: Ensure explicit consent from document owners before sharing.

  • The move to the cloud (SaaS) is a catalyst for business modernisation and transformation, enabling the development of architecture to allow scalability, integration and actionable business intelligence. In turn, this supports a better user experience, and helps drive down transactional costs.
