Dialog and Google for Government

Dialog has a long history of assisting departments and agencies across the Federal, State and Local levels of government with IT solutions and in particular cloud capabilities in recent years.

Dialog’s Google Solutions Practice has consulted with two of Australia’s State Whole of Government CIO offices on matters relating to managing Data Sovereignty, to privacy and security requirements, as well as understanding the architecture of cloud services suitable for use by government bodies.

Dialog has provided pilots of cloud services and contracted with agencies to provide Safe Harbor conditions for cloud services provided by global companies like Google. The practice has also outsourced the provision of these services and licensing management to provide the right services to government and to simplify the management of the vendors.

Dialog has also provided a strong advocacy for client agencies when dealing with contracting conditions and vendor management issues, and the sometime complexities of moving to cloud and the procurement models required for these services.

Dialog is a panel member of the Australian Whole of Government Cloud Services Panel for providing Cloud consultancy, Google cloud services, and implementation, deployment, outsourcing and support of these services.

Google for Government Transformation Program

Google's Offer

Google has announced a new initiative allowing an organisation of 250 to 3000 seats to Go to Google Apps or Google Drive Unlimited at no license cost during the remainder of their Microsoft Enterprise (or other vendor) Agreement. They will also pitch in $25 a seat to meet the deployment and initial training costs paid to the deployment partner to any new customer of 100 to 3000 seats. 

Consider that you could extend UNCLASS email and collaboration to all of an Agency up to 3000 seats in size, at No Cost at all for a base installation. The offer is valid for a limited time only.

Make savings (up to 70%) by not having a need for Office, or at least a great deal of your Microsoft Office Licensing… you are simply paying for the Google subscription going forward (after the EA expires).

Governments and Open Data

Dialog’s partnerships with organisations like BetterCloudYubico, and CloudMigrator, provide World best practice solutions for Government Departments to secure their connectivity to Google Cloud services, as well as a heuristic monitoring service that ensures that the organisation’s use of the cloud services meet privacy, data sovereignty and legislative requirements for security of the data.

Our consulting services for adopting or piloting cloud services also provide leading strategies for managing the security of these services well beyond existing on premise capabilities.

We guarantee that moving an element of the department’s operations to a cloud service will increase the security of that data from current operations, including increasing the security of end-user handling of the data. It is for this reason that several Defence agencies in the region are now considering and trialling these secured Google Cloud offerings.
