Public Sector IT has long had a reputation of being poor value for money; expensive, late, not fit-for-purpose.
It has suffered from decades of under investment that has left large parts of the public sector using obsolete solutions that are at risk of operational issues and security threats (such as the Wannacry malware outbreak).
Cloud is helping to change all of that:
• It’s easier to budget for; large, chunky capital expenditure is replaced by lower operating costs
• You only pay for what you use, not for what you ‘might’ potentially use
• You no longer suffer from over-capacity and under utilisation (which are wasted resources)
• You are no longer liable for ‘technology refreshes’ that are necessary to avoid technology obsolescence
• You benefit from lower prices as economies of scale are passed back to you
• You have far greater flexibility; no up-front costs, no minimum term, no exit fees
It is easy to understand why the UK public sector has adopted a ‘Cloud First’ policy. So, discover how our Crown Commercial Services (CCS) approved solutions can help you take the cost and inefficiency out of your traditional IT systems and how our SaaS providers can help you adopt ready-made, pay-as-you-go, solutions specific to your community.
There is an easy way to migrate existing systems (such as Oracle and VMware) into the cloud, giving you time and space to transform those traditional systems into cloud native architectures (using Azure and OpenStack). You can avoid lock-in to a single cloud and benefit from competition, delivering you better value and innovation, without compromise.
UKCloud was created to make a difference to the way public sector IT is delivered. We’ve been exclusively dedicated to supporting the digital transformation of UK public services. We believe in taking the cost, risk and waste out of public sector IT to improve the front-line public services delivered to UK citizens and businesses.
UKCloud was built to provide public cloud services for the UK public sector. We were the first cloud provider to achieve Pan Government Accreditation by CESG (now NCSC) as we have always taken a comprehensive approach to assurance, certification and accreditation.
We are devoted to supporting the British citizen, delivering choice and flexibility to our customers. Today, we support hundreds of digital programmes across the UK public sector; from large Central Government shared service solutions to small applications used by NHS trusts or local authorities. Our experts have seen it all.
The concept of social value means that there is both financial and non-financial value to local communities of public sector programmes that harness the capabilities of British businesses; especially small-to-medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
