QA will be hosting a webinar exclusively for Socitm members on navigating the journey to the Cloud on 25 April.
Cloud computing is already used by the majority of local authorities, according to the latest research published by Eduserv and Socitm.
The delivery of a Cloud solution can be a relatively straightforward process that can really help to deliver an unparalleled service.
The benefits do seem to outweigh the drawbacks for most organisations; most notably the significant cost saving that can be achieved over a three-year period.
However, the time has to be right for migration. This can mean anything from the trust key decision makers have in the Cloud’s value, to the depreciation of any existing onsite hardware.
A very serious consideration needs to be made when choosing a service provider as well, due to the potential security issues that come with handing over your IT infrastructure and data to a third party.
Our next member webinar will help IT leaders to prepare to move to a Cloud-based environment. Delegates will learn about the speed, elasticity, security risks and economics of cloud computing. We’ll also assess the strengths and weaknesses of the leading cloud providers.
An invitation to the webinar has been sent to Socitm members. If you haven’t received your invitation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
