wTcv9JtKRSDYZJ3I JFSEmrLFpWvltm06xp9OFM3d7kToday we are proud and excited to announce that we have been selected by the Department of Internal Affairs to build the Common Web Platform for the New Zealand public sector.

To do this, we are building a Platform as a Service version of SilverStripe CMS targeted specifically at the needs of the New Zealand public sector. We are working with Revera, making use of their Government Infrastructure as a Service, alongside the set of open source tools that provide the best environment for creating and hosting SilverStripe websites. Development of the platform is already underway.

As well as being a great validation of our product, we see this as an opportunity to help push the envelope in the way that the public sector can make use of the web.

For more information about the Common Web Platform, please visit the ICT website. If you are from an eligible agency and are interested in making use of the Common Web Platform, please contact DIA directly.
