Microsoft: Objective Corporation – Game-changing secure-collaboration service goes global with a single, open source-friendly cloud

In 2014, Australia’s Objective Corporation wanted to expand its unique, high-security, content-collaboration service – Objective Connect – to customers around the world. The company selected Microsoft Azure because the cloud platform can provide support for the open source based service, and meets the required compliance and regulatory requirements in multiple countries. By using a single, global cloud partner, Objective Connect is now available in 68 countries.

The Business Challenge: Convinced that its service had global potential, in 2014, Objective Corporation looked for the best cloud infrastructure model to kick-start rapid global expansion.

“We wanted a cloud provider who could partner with us around the world,” says Rob Mills, Global Vice-President, Objective Connect. “As our customers are in government, health and regulated industries, the information they deal with is highly sensitive and must be hosted in their local geography. So along with security, Data Sovereignty is key. In Australia, more than 15,000 public servants use our service, and they require their data to be stored in Australia, where it is subject to Australian law. Overseas governments want the same assurance in their own territories.”

Mills’ other main challenge was finding a cloud service that proactively supports his company’s choice of technologies. “We wanted to consolidate the engineering effort on a single, consistent, global technology platform, instead of using different providers in various countries” he says. “That partner had to be one hundred percent supportive of the technologies we use.”
