The police and justice community is being challenged to improve services, but also reduce costs in the face of spending cuts. Existing resources are over stretched whilst the demand for service and performance improvements increases.
New legislation is driving the need for transformation. The threat of cyber crime is impacting the pace at which new technology is being adopted. What’s more citizens, victims, offenders, staff and the associated supply chain have higher expectations and expect a faster pace of change.
Delivering service to citizens online as well as the digital transformation of traditional paper-based processes can decrease costs, reduce workloads on front-line employees and provide improved levels of service.
But all this requires new applications and technology to be successfully deployed and supported. Not only that, it also means you have ever increasing amounts of data to manage. You need extensive storage capacity, data management and data exploitation capabilities and you have less to spend. Not forgetting that the security of your data is paramount.
Cloud computing can be used to provide a cost-efficient and secure environment to develop and deploy new applications and technology, as well as the unlimited resources needed to securely store your data. Assured cloud environments can successfully support solutions which enable collaboration, integration and sharing between police forces and other emergency services. Enterprise applications can also be securely hosted in the cloud in order to realise increased efficiencies and significant cost savings.
