CITEC is a Queensland Government agency responsible for enabling digital transformation and managing key ICT assets and services for the government. For over 50 years CITEC has provided technology infrastructure, business solutions and support to state government and commercial organisations nationwide.
CITEC faced a challenge in shifting to automated infrastructure provisioning and adopting Agile-DevOps project delivery methods. The agency needed additional internal expertise and capacity to de-risk this shift. The deadline for the project was approaching fast, and CITEC needed a solution to ensure timely delivery. Sentify was engaged to provide automated platform provisioning and workflow development to support this shift.
Sentify provided a reconciled, repeatable infrastructure design to support project builds and delivery automation. This support resulted in successfully delivering the operational platform for the first project on time and within budget. Subsequent projects were provisioned instantaneously through the automation-as-code approach. Sentify also provided operational DevOps workflows tailored to CITEC’s specific requirements and security constraints through their partnerships with GitLab and Atlassian.
Sentify’s solution helped CITEC achieve its goal of shifting to automated infrastructure provisioning and Agile-DevOps project delivery methods. The agency delivered over 100 projects in just six months, which was only possible with the support of Sentify. The solution provided by Sentify helped CITEC de-risk the project and ensure timely delivery. The agency achieved its objective of delivering digital transformation services to the Queensland Government.
