SYDNEY – 6 March 2015 – Acquia, the digital experience company, today announced the release of govCMS to all tiers of government. govCMS is a whole of government Web Content Management System for Australian government sites. Built on the Acquia Platform, govCMS reflects the Government’s commitment to open source innovation and the use of shared, cloud-based services.
govCMS was designed to help government agencies save costs as they reimagine how they deliver information and services. A service offered to Commonwealth Government entities, govCMS offers a more efficient platform for digital government initiatives and challenges the status quo for digital experience delivery. Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2014, australia.gov.au was the initial site to migrate to the govCMS environment; other early adopters include the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority, the Department of Communications, and the Department of Social Services. As of today the platform is available to federal, state and local government.
