“Modern IT infrastructure is the backbone of better digital service delivery,” has said the Honourable Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board of Canada. “Responding quickly to the changing needs of Canadians while constantly improving Government of Canada services requires new, agile, cloud-based solutions.”
It’s clear that Canada is looking forward to the cloud for the future of its public services.
In fact, in 2011 to better meet this vision, the majority of IT infrastructure was consolidated under the management of a single organization: Shared Services Canada (SSC). SSC delivers infrastructure services related to email, data centers, telecommunications, and workplace technology devices for 43 federal agencies. Currently, SSC operates approximately 700 data centers running roughly 14,000 applications across the Canadian government.
SSC recently announced the awarding of multiple contracts to six partners of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network for access to AWS cloud services. The AWS Partner Network (APN) is a global partner program that focuses on helping organizations build a successful AWS-based business by providing business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market support.
