Description

ImageON was acquired in 2006 and is solely used by the Ministry of Finance as a core

component for payment processing, data entry and image capture.

Payment processing is the core service provided by the Tax Compliance and Benefits

Division, Advisory, Objections, Appeals and Services branch with data entry and image

capture to support the administration of tax and non-tax programs. These service offerings

support 127 programs across 17 ministries in the Ontario Public Service. The system is

designed to accommodate high sensitivity data and provides high-volume and complex

payment processing, imaging and digitization of information and transfers data, images and

metadata to host systems.

The longer term business and technical strategies for modernizing the MOF payment

processing service will be addressed as part of the Revenue Processing, Image Capture and

Data Entry Transformation Initiative (RIDE-TI). RIDE-TI is a multi-year project with completion

targeted for 2024/25. As part of this initiative, imageON will be replaced and

decommissioned in fiscal 2024/25.

In the interim, there is a critical need to maintain the stability and reliability of the current

imageON solution. Currently, some of the core hardware and software components are near

end-of-life vendor support or are already on Off Warranty Maintenance agreements. In

addition, the Windows server requires an upgrade from 2008 to 2012. To maintain

environment stability and reliability, the existing infrastructure requires a refresh.

New hardware and software will ensure that the imageON environment is at a version

covered under vendor's support, which is a major contributing factor to providing a

sustainable and reliable environment in alignment with SLA's to provide excellent service to

MOF clients.

The primary objective of this project is to refresh critical core components of the existing

imageON hardware and software to a fully warranted/vendor supported environment until it is

replaced by RIDE-TI. It does not involve application changes and there are no impacts to

business processes. In addition, no new features or functions will be invoked.
