Keeping up with the relentless pace of technology change is always a challenge. For UK public sector organisations, it means delivering reliable, secure and optimised digital services on a tight budget. The pressure to simultaneously provide scalable and agile services is just as relentless.
Like any private business, government organizations need to migrate their legacy applications to the cloud while finding ways to efficiently manage workloads. Many organizations experience the common challenge of determining which applications are best suited to which cloud model to gain the greatest performance, accessibility and sustainability for that workload. Public sector agencies also face greater migration challenges, thanks to data protection and compliance demands that require a unique blend of clearance, skills and expertise that are not always available in-house or from many service providers.
