Information Technology Services 53 A proof of concept was conducted to pilot technology to provide a secure web interface for mainframe applications. The proof of concept was successful, and the pilot application is transitioning to a production environment, enabling Internet access to critical government business systems hosted on the mainframe. The graph shows revenue from CPU charges and the cost for CPU second over each of the last four years. Revenue has, on average, continued to drop as users migrate systems off the mainframe. Revenue this year was higher than expected, as some agencies decommissioning mainframe systems did not meet deadlines to migrate off the mainframe, resulting in penalty rates. This also caused a higher than expected utilisation of the CPU resulting in a drop in the cost per CPU second. Audit The Auditor General conducted an audit of the Data Centre Services financial statement for last year. Assets were missing and the recommendation to undertake a full stock take of assets was agreed to. Refer page 187. Initiatives 2004/05 Migrate the Personnel and Payroll Management System from CITEC to the NTG mainframe. Implement technology upgrades for critical mainframe system software, including operating system, database, system tools and utilities. Prepare for implementation of hardware upgrade of IBM mainframe server. Review and recommend future technology directions for centralised disk and tape storage management solution. Partner with NTG agency clients to expand web services infrastructure to provide secure web interface, and assist in modernising mainframe applications. Continue to reduce mainframe unit cost through further conversion of contractor positions to permanent staffing positions. 7 7.25 7.5 7.75 8 8.25 8.5 2000/01 2001/02 2002/03 2003/04 C PU C ha rg es ($ M ) 0.25 0.3 0.35 0.4 $ Pe r C PU S ec on d CPU Charges ($M) $ Per CPU
