New GovCMS service provider

Posted 4 months ago

The existing GovCMS hosting contract expires in September 2018, which provided an opportunity to go back to market with redefined requirements to meet the needs of our ever evolving service. Following an evaluation process, Finance would like to announce that Salsa Digital have been selected as the preferred supplier, who have partnered with Amazee.io as their subcontractor.

Salsa Digital will continue to provide Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) hosting on the public cloud with Amazon Web Services (AWS), using the Drupal open source Content Management System (CMS). The partnership with Amazee.io will provide further enhancements to the service.

The new hosting arrangements will be available for GovCMS customers before the end of 2018. Finance will manage the migration of existing SaaS websites to the new platform, and will work with agencies to migrate PaaS sites across once SaaS migrations are complete.
