Finance scopes out better tech for Digital Records Platform

The Department of Finance is set to pick the local tech industry’s collective brain about its proposed whole-of-government Digital Records Platform after releasing a position paper on the plans and invite feedback on potential solutions that might be in the marketplace. 

This is not the first time Finance seeks industry help to know what technologies are available. In 2016 a request for information determined the market was “not ready to provide a service capable of automating the record capture and lifecycle tasks”.

Finance wants the platform to use technologies including cognitive computing, keyword extraction and auto-indexing to ensure that all information is automatically captured and categorised, indexed, managed and disposed of with minimal interaction by the end user. The solution will, initially, manage unstructured data.

The platform would be the basis of a Whole of Government system of information management.

Finance wants a platform that will offer a more effective use of Australian Government records. It also wants it to make it easy to share data between agencies and other entities when needed.
