Cloud Computing for Central Government

Central government departments are under constant pressure to drive real cost efficiencies through innovation and a “Cloud First” approach, but heavily integrated systems, legacy applications, ageing technology and expensive data centres make achieving this extremely complex. Tight budgets and the glare of the media spotlight add further pressure.

The need to drive real value from tax payers’ money is paramount for Central Government departments and with the right technology, government organisations can successfully rationalise their IT estates to provide the rapid interaction and online support that today’s citizens and businesses expect.

Cloud-based solutions not only allow these organisations to easily meet Cloud First directives, and provide the agile implementation and performance to allow greatly improved operational efficiencies and productivity, they also remove significant capital expenditure from their budgets, freeing up public funds to enhance frontline services rather than supporting legacy systems. At the same time they ensure secure remote working, easy collaboration across departments, systems and data, and improved business continuity.

“We’ve been thrilled by the success of this project and the transformational impact it has had on our ability to deliver. They really pulled out all the stops and we now have a highly secure, extremely reliable, Cloud-based platform which has helped us save costs and improve performance.”
