Telecommunications as a Service (TaaS)

Government has organised its $500m p.a. demand pool around a deliberate push to consume telecommunications capability as-a-Service and shift asset management and decision rights to service providers. This is a cross public sector programme called 'Telecommunications as a Service' or TaaS. It is driving the service provider market to inter-operate and commoditise.

For the agencies being invited to make this change, TaaS represents a larger opportunity to embrace not just Telecommunications as a Service, but consumption as a Service. A well planned, carefully executed and comprehensive shift to this new way of operating can reap significant rewards for agencies, chiefly in the areas of cost and agility.

Voco has been appointed to the All of Government consultancy panel (AoG). This means government agencies can fastrack access to our expertise in the areas of Assurance, and Procurement and Logistics. We have developed specific collateral to assist organisations moving to adopt TaaS.

It’s pleasing that the Government is looking at sourcing in new ways. There are huge benefits on offer, and helping organisations realise them is one of the most satisfying parts of what we do.
