What does the modernisation journey look like with NiuPay?

Initial Consultation and Discovery

At the outset of our journey, we engage in a thorough consultation and discovery phase. During this initial meeting, our team of AWS-certified professionals closely collaborates with your organisation to understand your unique challenges, goals, and the existing IT infrastructure.


This crucial step allows us to gain deep insights into your operational needs and to identify opportunities for cloud integration and digital transformation. We focus on understanding not just your technological requirements but also the broader business objectives, ensuring that any proposed solutions align perfectly with your strategic goals.

Custom Solution Design and Planning

Based on insights gathered during the discovery phase, our experts design a customised solution that leverages AWS's robust capabilities. This plan is not just a blueprint for technical implementation but a comprehensive strategy encompassing aspects like cloud architecture, data security, compliance requirements, and potential business impact.


Our team ensures that this custom solution is tailored to your organisation's specific needs, offering scalability, improved efficiency, and a clear path for digital transformation.

Proof of Concept and Validation

Before full-scale implementation, we develop a proof of concept (PoC) to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed AWS solution. This step is critical for validating the custom solution against real-world scenarios, providing a practical glimpse into the future state.


It allows for adjustments based on feedback, ensuring that the final solution is fine-tuned to your organisation’s specific operational context and objectives.

Implementation and Integration

With the validated plan and PoC, we move into the implementation phase. Our team of AWS experts oversees the deployment of cloud solutions, ensuring seamless integration with your existing systems.


We manage all aspects of the migration to AWS, from setting up the infrastructure to transferring data, all while minimising disruption to your daily operations. This phase also involves rigorous testing to ensure that all components are functioning optimally within the new cloud environment.

Training and Empowerment

Empowering your team is key to maximising the benefits of AWS modernisation. We provide comprehensive training and support, ensuring your staff are well-equipped to leverage the new cloud-based tools and systems effectively.


This step includes hands-on training sessions, detailed documentation, and ongoing support to facilitate a smooth transition and to foster confidence in using the new cloud infrastructure and applications.

Ongoing Management and Optimisation

Our engagement doesn’t end with the implementation. We offer continuous management and optimisation services to ensure that your AWS environment evolves in line with emerging technologies and your changing business needs.


This includes regular performance monitoring, security updates, compliance checks, and proactive improvements. Our goal is to ensure that your cloud infrastructure remains robust, secure, and aligned with best practices, enabling you to focus on core business activities.


Modernisation in Practice: Papua New Guinea Department of Lands and Physical Planning

In partnership with NiuPay, the Department of Lands and Physical Planning (DLPP) embarked on a transformative journey to modernise their land management systems. This collaboration led to the development and deployment of GoLands and eLands, two innovative platforms designed and developed atop NiuPay’s MissionReady, fully-managed architecture.


  • Launch Date: August 2020
  • Nature of Project: Brownfield – Fully managed cloud infrastructure (end-to-end)
  • Time to Initial Deployment: 6 Months
  • Current Status: Active and ongoing

NiuPay's Contribution

  • End-to-End Infrastructure Management and Development: NiuPay actively manages and maintains DLPP’s cloud infrastructure, ensuring seamless operation and robust security. Additionally, NiuPay is responsible for the design and development of GoLands and eLands, tailored to meet the specific requirements of the DLPP. This approach ensures that the platforms are perfectly aligned with the department’s unique operational needs.

  • Consistent System Availability: GoLands/eLands achieved 99.998% availability in 2023, measured on a minute-by-minute basis. This ongoing commitment to reliability shows NiuPay’s dedication to operational excellence and uninterrupted service delivery.

  • Response to Client Needs: NiuPay demonstrates its commitment to exceptional client service by rapidly addressing any issues raised by DLPP, typically responding within minutes. This proactive approach ensures quick resolution of concerns, maintaining high operational efficiency and client satisfaction.


DLPP faced operational challenges due to outdated systems and disjointed data management. These issues led to inefficient land rental billing/collection and complicated land management procedures. The lack of a unified digital system resulted in reduced visibility on land ownership changes and hindered public access to services.
