Recognizing the critical economic situation in Ukraine and in support of increasing transparency and efficiency within the Ukrainian government De Novo has developed a support program for existing government information technology (IT) systems including strategies for exploiting more cost effective and flexible cloud computing. To support this initiative De Novo will subsidize a majority the proposed project’s cost in 2014.
De Novo believes that the Ukrainian government could realize substantial savings (in the millions of hryvnias) of the national budget in the current year through implementation of innovative, technology based solutions and improve the overall efficiency of the government IT resources.
The proposed program consists of four stages:
- Hosting of government computing resources at De Novo Tier III standard datacenter with 80% discount till the end of 2014. This step would guarantee government IT systems continuity without the need for engineering and building a dedicated datacenter;
- Employment of De Novo Cloud computing resources with 80% discount till the end of 2014 as a rapid and effective means to provide secure infrastructure for a wide range of applications and IT services. Implementing Cloud technologies at De Novo will improve the flexibility and resiliency of IT applications used by government;
- Audit of existing government IT infrastructure, with the recommendations on optimization and road map towards more cost effective and flexible technology. The objective would be to upgrade many obsolete IT systems and improve the effectiveness through the adoption of cloud technologies using proven methodology and project tools. De Novo will subsidize the cost of this activity (estimated not to exceed 40 000 UAH for the largest facility;
- De Novo will offer no cost training and workshop sessions for government IT departments and operating personnel on the creation and benefits of cloud infrastructures.
“De Novo management offers to provide government departments with proven resources towards modernization and adaptation of new technologies. We believe that our expertise in innovative cloud technologies will help government authorities realize substantial beneifts, increased efficiencies and substantial cost savings”, Maxim Ageyev, CEO of De Novo on announcing the program. “We believe that IT services will be a large contributor towards creation of a new and more efficient government and we are ready to assist through compensation of a majority of costs and more efficient use of the government budget to benefit our society and our country. As De Novo does not possess own communication channels, we invite telecom providers to join our initiative and provide Ukrainian state authorities with preferential conditions that would allow them to connect to the resources of our datacenter”.
