UKCloudX reduces the time, cost and risk of your digital transformation

  • Faster innovation through experimentation
  • Better insights through secure collaboration
  • Trusted platform for critical systems
  • Faster innovation through experimentation

    There are many emerging technologies that have the potential to truly transform the way our missions are executed.  The key is to rapidly experiment with these new technologies in order to develop innovative new capabilities and maintain our information superiority.

    UKCloudX delivers a secure and flexible digital platform that spans multiple classification levels. And a rich ecosystem of solution providers that specialise in digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, sensor networks (IoT), augmented reality and much more.

    Better insights through secure collaboration

    The traditional approaches to IT encouraged a siloed environment which makes it difficult for different government agencies to share information with one another – and with industry partners.

    Cloud provides a secure, central and neutral environment that breaks down the barriers for collaboration.  UKCloudX extends this capability across classification levels and secure networks which enables organisations to benefit from more complete and more up-to-date information – which leads to better insights and better decisions.

    Trusted platform for critical systems

    UKCloudX delivers a multi-cloud platform that isn’t just for experimentation and new applications – it also supports enterprise scale systems which underpin core operational capabilities.

    UKCloudX provides an approved, compliant and flexible platform for the most sensitive and critical solutions. We enable organisations to find the ideal mix of capex-centric (i.e. private cloud) and opex-centric (i.e. public cloud) services.  And our experts work with trusted solution providers to deliver services – reducing your programme’s time, cost and risk.

    “Combining UKCloudX’s secure, cost-effective platform with IBM’s specialist skills and services in the defence and national security sector, will provide real value for our clients.”

    The brave and committed operatives in our Defence and National Security community are often constrained by traditional, inefficient and disjointed IT systems which makes it difficult to work effectively across classification levels and trust boundaries.  There is massive potential in harnessing digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality and sensor networks (IoT) to create a ‘force multiplier’.

    UKCloudX brings together expert people, specialist partners and an innovative platform to make it much easier for our agencies to exploit their collective capabilities and keep our nation safe from the bad guys
