Curam Software and HP announced a global agreement on Tuesday to provide Social Enterprise Management (SEM) packages for public sector agencies worldwide.

These SEM solutions will comprise of hardware, software, and web services designed to assist social enterprises - such as non-profit organisations, civil society groups, and public bodies - to streamline their business processes and integrate new technology applications.

Dublin-based Curam specialises in SEM and other applications for the social enterprise, or non-business sector.

Based on integrating Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), open source, and industry-standard systems, the two firms are marketing SEM as an alternative to transferring from legacy mainframe systems.

"Working with Curam Software, HP is offering a comprehensive social services solution tailored to the specific needs of civilian agencies from the device to the desktop to the data centre," said Enrique Barkey, worldwide director for civilian agency solutions at HP. "We look forward to empowering social enterprises to greatly improve their client services while reducing IT capital and operating costs," he said.

Under the terms of the agreement, HP will provide a team of professionals to deploy proof-of-concept designs for customers and manage Curam Software implementations worldwide. This HP team will also help existing customers to identify opportunities for innovation and provide support on facilitating new projects. Their approach will be based on using the implementation practices of HP's e-government framework which is designed to deliver new online services to citizens while utilising existing IT investments.

"This global agreement provides a top tier, end-to-end solution for government agencies around the world to realise the benefits of an SEM approach," Curam Software executive vice president Ernie Connon said.
