The public sector is learning from experience and reassessing priorities in the move to cloud
While cloud services have proved to be a major asset to the public sector during the Covid-19 pandemic, the experience changed some perspectives on their use.
It has been generally positive, but there have been a few downsides, an identification of possible pitfalls and the type of language to be used in migrating workloads and applications.
There are also signs of a shift away from talking about ‘cloud first’ and ‘hybrid cloud’ towards a focus on ‘multi-cloud’ as the prime approach.
A number of relevant factors were raised during a recent online round table staged by UKAuthority and Nutanix, bringing together around 20 public sector digital leaders to discuss their experience of cloud migrations during the pandemic, their perspectives on the current priorities and which factors are going to be crucial in future adoptions of cloud services.
The briefing paper from the event provides reports on experiences and ideas on how the public sector needs to approach its future use of cloud, taking in the security concerns, latency and legacy issues, and the priorities in planning for the future.
