City of Johannesburg CPMS - On-line Building Plan Submissions Down

13 December 2022



Dear Valued Customer 

Please note that the heavy rains that have been experienced in the most parts of the city including the Roodepoort area have affected the functionality of the data centre located at the Roodepoort Civic Centre. Water started heavily coming into the data centre, that was noticed on Friday and monitored through the weekend.

The Group Information Communication Technology and Information Management department had to take a decision to switch off the ICT equipment for protection purposes. Repairs have been arranged; however, it could only commence once the rains have subsided.

Services such as network connectivity to various facilities has been impacted due to Roodepoort being one of the network aggregation sites, that include systems which are hosted in the Roodepoort Data Centre converge infrastructure. 

The following services are impacted by the Roodepoort Data Centre switch off:

1.         Integration Services - BizTalk
2.         CATS PMO Tool, Infrastructure, Application and Reporting Servers
