15 Aug CLOUD READINESS FOR THE SCOTTISH PUBLIC SECTOR
SUPPORTING SCOTLAND’S DIGITAL FUTURE
Digital transformation is revolutionising the way we work, collaborate, deliver and access vital public services.
Cloud services are at the heart of this revolution, offering unprecedented opportunities to reduce costs, rapidly scale IT resources to meet your needs, grasp the innovation potential of Big Data, and make your organisation more efficient, resilient and flexible.
As the Scottish Government’s digital strategy notes, while the Cloud opens new opportunities it simultaneously presents new challenges. Security, privacy, and controlling costs are among these potential pitfalls. Not every IT workload is suitable for Cloud migration and every organisation has a different state of readiness for digital transformation. There is a vast – and growing – number of ways to use Cloud and Hosted technologies to help deliver your critical services, but choosing the right options to support your needs and budget isn’t often easy.
You need a partner who understands not only the how of digital transformation, but the why and the when, with a methodology that works to support your strategic objectives throughout every phase of your journey towards a new, digital way of working.

- Strategy recommendations: Suggestions and advisories assist in creating a clear cloud adoption strategy and road map that meet your specific priorities and objectives.
- Transparent projected costs: Assess the direct and indirect costs and benefits relating to migrating your infrastructure to the cloud with 3 year cumulative Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) modelling.
