These days, even the least tech savvy of us are embracing the convenience technology brings to our daily lives. We can shop and bank online from any device, make contactless payments with our smartphones and even book and pay for taxis at the touch of an app. Increasingly, we expect this level of convenience and interactivity from all service providers and public services are no exception.
We’re all pretty accustomed now to technology rapidly advancing from one next big thing to another and cloud is no exception. In recent times multi-cloud has been the buzzword emblazoned across IT headlines superseding the benefits of mere single cloud providers in every way. Improved security and reliability, vendor lock-in, superior, lower cost, end solutions, these are all notable advantages being bandied around in support of multi-cloud. But how accurate is this view really?
Public Sector organisations from Central Government to Local Councils are experiencing the need to embrace Digital Transformation. Integral to this, is the necessity to create a solid foundation on which services can be implemented, making the establishment of a Cloud platform, a fundamental part of any Digital Transformation activity.
