When Computer Sciences Corporation (now DXC) won the tender to build a new whole of government digital identity and services platform, they asked digizoo to provide the technology team to design and develop the solution.


Digizoo worked as a key services provider in a broader team consisting of members from CSC and various government agencies to build a solution that was production ready in the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform within 6 months.


The solution consisted of custom services for motor vehicle registration renewals, payments, and address management that were integrated with the AccessCanberra Oracle Service Cloud for an integrated federated identity solution. The web and mobile platform was based on the Backbase Customer Experience Platform that the ACT Government had selected in a rigorous tender process. Integration microservices were built to manage interactions with AccessCanberra, Roads and Traffic Authority, Westpac payments, and the Federal Government's Document Verification Service (DVS).


Throughout the project, the decision to move the platform from cloud to on-premise was constantly under review, and the elegance of the modular platform architecture was able to regularly move the deployments from one infrastructure to the other without much effort thanks to the automation and DevOps practices in place.
