How the Department for Education ensured business continuity after adopting a SaaS data management solution hosted within AWS.
The Standards and Testing Agency (STA) is an executive agency of the UK Governments Department for Education (DfE). STA set the tests to assess children in education from early years to the end of primary school. In order to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the test development process, STA contracted Texuna Technologies which specialises in data management solutions to develop ItemBank, a robust and secure data management system hosted in the cloud.
The DfE risk assessment team identified that relying on a cloud hosted application had some inherent risks and they would require a more advanced software escrow arrangement. In order to provide an assured level of business continuity and to mitigate against these risks, the DfE published a tender for a new contract to provide a full continuity solution within AWS.
After a thorough review of GCloud 10 approved software escrow vendors, Escrow London were awarded the new SaaS Escrow contract to provide a comprehensive and secure SaaS Escrow solution.
