Is cloud a digital lifeline for the public sector as budgets tighten post-Covid?

Cloud – public, private and hybrid – played a huge part in the public sector’s Covid response. The agility, flexibility and speed of deployment for never foreseen needs have proven the technology key to the sector’s successful response.

But with budgets set to tighten post pandemic how will the sector continue its digital transformation journey? Does cloud offer a digital lifeline, enabling rapid digital transformation and innovation at an affordable cost? From public cloud such as Azure to the familiar Microsoft 365 there is a flexible digital foundation of technologies on which to build the future of public service delivery.
