How the Australian Government is using Microsoft Dynamics 365

In a new deal, the Western Australian (WA) government will expand its usage of Microsoft technologies by allowing all of its state agencies to access Azure cloud services and cloud applications such as Office 365 and Dynamics 365.

The Australian government cloud services deal will increase efficiency across the public sector and build the digital foundations for new citizen-centric services, aligned with the state’s strategic digital goals.

This arrangement will help agencies develop and implement new cloud-based digital services faster, giving the Commonwealth a boost in efficiency and agility. It also allows the government to fully utilize Microsoft’s enormous investments in Australia over the previous two years. The investment was particularly made in the highly secure and robust Azure cloud, which had an exclusive design for essential national computing applications.

Microsoft’s commitment to engage with the government to upskill public sector people, equipping them with the digital skills and expertise needed to successfully deploy cloud-based solutions while also helping to future-proof their jobs, is another crucial component of the collaboration. Over 1,400 accessible Azure training spots are available in the plan to Australian Government IT employees, with money available to support up to 100 new learners in the ACT over the next two years.
