You can’t keep your eyes on the streets when you’re stuck in an office.
NSW Police needed to enable officers to accomplish work from any device and from any location. This project involved highly sensitive data and a need for collaborative working environment amongst a national lockdown.
As Microsoft partners, we worked hand-in-hand with NSW Police to seamlessly integrate Microsoft 365 into their environment. This begun with establishing an identity model to transition 23,000 staff onto Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus.
Out with the old, in with the new. Previously, NSW Police had been relying on Skype for Business, however the platform is set retire on July 31st, 2021. We recently successfully deployed Microsoft Teams which included ready-to-use Microsoft Teams templates and a Teamwork governance tool.
As expected, the NSW Police have stringent requirements for their security posture. Any system they adopted had to meet the highest level of security at the PROTECTED classification.
With the implementation of Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Teams, we were able to provide the NSW Police with the perfect tools to drive efficiency and increase collaboration and productivity for all of their projects and teams. Some of the most useful features included live chat, online meetings, and web conferencing capabilities.
Our innovative remote working services allowed the team to adapt quickly to the drastic changes imposed by COVID-19 restrictions, and to swiftly transition to Teams before the Skype Online platform was discontinued. Their first broadcasted Live Event, the inaugural Technology Town Hall, took place during the COVID-19 lockdown and included approximately 500 remote attendees.
By integrating these tools into their framework, the NSW Police are able to carry out a large portion of their work away from the office computer and on the move.
Sensitive information needs ironclad security. Through our tailored services we were able to meet the government standards for security and regulated data. We designed all programs to meet the Australian Cyber Security Centre controls up to the PROTECTED classification.
“Atarix were chosen partners on the O365 Cloud Transition and Transformation project. They Helped NSWPF migrate over 23,000 mailboxes from Notes to Office 365, the project was complete on time and budget. The migration was completed from Skype to Teams prior to deprecation date of June 2021, and they assisted with documenting Systems Security Plan (SSP) in preparation for IRAP assessment.”

Agile workplace? It’s no surprise that a cutting-edge Telco team would be into roaming.
NuMobile was preparing to hit the market and the timeframe was tight. They were looking for a partner that could deliver a digital workplace that was both agile and secure. Seeing as this was their launch, it was extremely important that there were no hiccups in the leadup.
They needed a trusted partner to ensure that their office networks and computing was professionally developed and managed, while meeting the strict requirements of their stakeholders.
Atarix implemented the Microsoft 365 solution as NuMobile’s core digital workplace and worked to ensure their collaboration and governance requirements were met. By doing this, we were able to support the agile way that many new businesses operate in, while allowing mobility and collaboration.
To ensure NuMobile’s digital workplace remained secure, ATARIX deployed Azure Conditional Access policies and managed all their devices using Intune MDM to allow for extra security on personal and mobile devices. Furthermore, their network services are securely managed and monitored.
The Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) reviews decisions made by Australian Government ministers, departments and agencies. Previously, all meetings were conducted onsite using AV equipment in meetings rooms. With a rapid shift into working from home, we were asked to help with enabling AAT staff to remotely host hearings and meetings during COVID-19.
Although the timeframe was tight, these solutions had to align to the DTA’s strict PROTECTED utility controls, so security was at the forefront of this project.
In the short timeframe that was given, Atarix was able to implement the Microsoft 365 solution to over 300 AAT staff, with a focus on the Microsoft Teams Meeting and Conferencing capability. This enabled staff to conduct meetings and conferencing remotely, allowing the agency to continue to operate and serve the public. Beyond the immediate COVID-19 challenges that we were able to overcome, the transition over the cloud has helped the team optimise processes and change how they work. With Cloud technology, the staff are on the journey to become more efficient and flexible in their workplace.
Atarix deployed a proof of concept to demonstrate the Teams meeting and conferencing solution that was secure for their purposes. After establishing peace of mind, Atarix rolled out the solution allowing staff to effectively host remote meetings with stakeholders securely, using Teams on their trusted AAT devices.
