Why Should Local Governments Invest in Cloud?


What does it mean to be in the Cloud?

The market for cloud computing and applications has been maturing rapidly over the past five years. As it continues to evolve, more and more local authorities are migrating to the cloud to take advantage of greater agility, scalability and cost-savings.

There have been barriers that have kept local government CIOs from a broader adoption of cloud technology, including budget and contractual considerations. Perhaps one of the most enduring obstacles has been a lingering concern around how secure the cloud truly is?

What's Included:

  • Welcome to the Era of the Anywhere Worker
  • From ISDN to SIP

GDPR: An Engineers Point of View

If you are currently working in IT in the lead up to the GDPR implementation date (25 May 2018) you were probably trying to decipher the huge volume of data available on how to be GDPR compliant. I had already spent the year prior quietly reading and trying to absorb the thousands of free (!!!) GDPR resources online and I was becoming increasingly disillusioned at the reams of conflicting advice that seemed to emerge each day. More so because colleagues and customers alike were looking at me to advise them on the best way forward.

As GDPR day came ever closer I discovered that “IT Governance”, a well-known provider of risk management and compliance training were offing a one day “Certified” GDPR training course, just down the road from our offices in London. As it was a foundation course that was aimed at novices I jumped at the chance to clarify my thoughts and gain the knowledge I needed when I was offered the chance to attend as part of our own GDPR compliance initiative.

The Only Way is Digital for Our Government

Innovative technology is gaining momentum and driving a transformation of the public sector; slashing costs and upgrading services.

The Technology sector has joined forces with the UK Government to pledge an investment of nearly £1 billion, to develop new AI (artificial intelligence) technologies here in the UK. 

The AI Sector Deal, which has over 50 private sector participating businesses, will contribute £300 million, with another £300 million provided by the government. The remaining £400+ million will come from existing government grants.[1]

In 2017, Notting Hill Carnival saw the Metropolitan Police use AI to drive their facial recognition process and cross reference with other crime data to identify likely offenders. This is one example of an explosion in new technology across the public sphere with the next phase utilising technology to rethink, reshape and reinvent how the government works. The new model will include use of blockchain, machine-learning, drones, robotics and IoT, thus providing vital data in real-time.
