Leeds adopting shared infrastructure platform

Leeds City Council is on its way to implementing its shared city platform, with the award of a contract for its design going to Manchester based company ANS Group.

The platform will provide the foundations for a shared server and other storage infrastructure to support the integration of the city’s wider public services, which will also be available to third sector organisations.

The platform is scheduled to become available for use in the late spring when the first organisations begin to use it. The council outlined its aim last year, pointing to the need for infrastructure built on common components and standards to replace its existing core infrastructure, which is approaching the end of its life cycle. It will include hardware, software and associated business services that all the relevant organisations could tap into, with the city council taking responsibility for its management. Read more here
