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?

Challenges Facing the Logistics Industry

In today’s customer-oriented, digitised society, the Transport & Logistics industry is under constant pressure to remain competitive, deliver high quality services to customers and adopt innovative ways to optimise their processes.

VoIP for Logistics delivers:

  • Access to voicemail and call-taking from the warehouse floor to call centres and business offices

  • Reduced phone service fees and charges

  • The ability to record calls; aiding supervisory staff in ensuring that customers’ needs are well supported. Voice recordings can also be consulted during the investigation of any disputes that are raised

How will the Networking and Communications Sector incorporate Drones?

Drone technology has the potential to increase UK GDP by £42 billion by 2030, according to new research from PwC.

The research estimates there will be more than 76,000 drones in use across UK skies by 2030. More than a third of these could be utilised by the public sector (including in areas such as defence, health and education).

There are significant opportunities for economic gains across all sectors, but the GDP uplift generated by drones is forecast to have a considerable impact on the public sector with an increase of 2.3%, amounting to around £11.4bn.

Embrace Flexible Working to Increase your Chances of Attracting Top Talent

According to a survey of 1000 London commuters the London tube strikes earlier in the year cost businesses over £1.5 million and the same figure in lost working hours.

In today’s technologically driven world, is it acceptable that UK businesses are willing to lose this much time, money and productivity by tying people to their desks? Isn’t it about time that all businesses had more flexible working initiatives in place and not just the young startup organisations?
