Decision details

Approval to award contract for the update the technology used by the Council document management system

Decision Maker: Assistant director Corporate Support

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

The technology (hardware and software support) that underpins the council’s document management system is approaching end of life and thus needs to be moved on to supported platforms and technologies.

This includes :-
• Moving data from the EMC Centera storage (at end of mainline hardware support) to the new hardware,
• Migration from server 2008 (extended support ends 2022) to 2019 (supportable to 2029)
• Conversion of data from CAS to S3 format. The conversion to S3 format also enables the council to move to cloud storage at a later date, if required, in line with the council digital strategy 2018-23

The document management system is a solution development and supported by Daisy. ComputaCentre have existing expertise in the migration of data from CAS to S3 format.
