Logica Implements Document Management Solution for NATO

  • 20 June, 2008 08:46

<p>Sydney, 20 June 2008</p>
<p>Logica, the IT and business services company, today announced the signing of a contract worth three million euros with NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation). NATO has commissioned Logica to develop and implement a management system for the alliance’s electronic documents. Logica is responsible for the entire scope of the project in Europe, Turkey and the USA.</p>
<p>Previously, Logica installed a “Document Handling System” (DHS) product for the “NATO Secret” network in ten of the organisation’s locations worldwide. By December 2008, DHS is expected to be set up at 14 more locations. Once the project is completed, the majority of NATO’s military community will be using the system. The technological basis for the “Document Handling System” is the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and the SQL Server 2005.</p>
<p>Integrated system instead of isolated applications</p>
<p>Prior to the introduction of DHS, NATO was using several separate systems for document management that were closely geared to the individual command centers and institutions of the organisation. With DHS from Logica, NATO employees are now able to access internal documents from any of the organisation’s locations. A powerful search function ensures that documents from a wide variety of different sources can be found quickly and easily.</p>
<p>“What we wanted from our new document management solution was a user-friendly application that offered our users enterprise-wide rapid access to all appropriate documents stored in the business in a controlled manner, balancing the need-to-know against the need-to-share. Logica has implemented a solution that does exactly that for us,” says Steven Janis, Core portfolio coordinator at the NATO C3 Agency.</p>
<p>“Logica offers NATO a full range of integrated services for the realisation of a document management system from a single source. We are responsible for hardware procurement, development, installation, training courses and support for NATO employees in Europe, Turkey and the USA. In order to achieve these goals, the client is being served by an international team of approximately 20 project employees,” comments Norbert Sanders, NATO Account Manager at Logica.</p>
