The City (Shared) Strategy Architecture & Commissioning (CSAC) function is working with Leeds City Council (LCC) and other city partners to acquire a common shared platform to serve public services (including health organisations) and potentially 3rd sector organisations across the city. It is expected that this platform will be available for operational service by the end of May 2018.
LCC needs to acquire this scalable capability that will consist of a common set of ICT and Business Management components/standards because parts of its existing core infrastructure are reaching end of life. By sourcing this common shared platform & service capability, this can be used by LCC but also offered to other partners across the city. This will ensure best returns for all parties by establishing a set of generic shared service components based on achieving business outcomes.
There will be two fundamental parts to the shared platform:
— Infrastructure — hardware & software;
— Business services associated with the shared platform.
It is expected that this platform will be hybrid i.e. will have elements of on premise in an existing LCC data centre (on behalf of the city) and also elements of public cloud. The expectation is that the platform will be mirrored to ensure resilience in a commercially operated data centre to be separately acquired.
The on going operation and management of the platform will be led by LCC working with partners.
There will be individual projects required to on-board/migrate organisations on to the platform over time. It is expected that the successful Contractor will work with LCC and others to design the on-boarding process and will assist with the early migration(s).
