UK Smart Government 2019 Data-Driven Transformation - Research Report

Thumb original 109217 v3 ps public sector pov aw online

Transitioning to citizen-centric service delivery, Brexit planning, implementing new digital services and adopting an evidence-based policy development are all transformational undertakings for the UK government and its departments. Thankfully, they all have one critical success factor in common: data. It is the fuel of digital transformation and without fast, always-on access to data, everything will stall. By everything, we mean all data-driven ambitions from the development of new models of service delivery that improve the quality of public services and reduce operating costs to using data, analytics and AI to deliver faster, and more informed decisioning into the hands of all frontline and strategic civil servants for the creation of evidence-based policy.

The digitalisation of services has already gone a long way to cutting operational costs and improving the efficiency of service delivery, but this is only a fraction of what can be achieved through digital transformation. Putting many public services online does go a long way to positioning citizens at the core of government, yet there is much more that can be achieved to improve outcomes. We recently surveyed government IT leaders to understand their views on the progress being made and what factors are putting the brakes on transformation. Some findings from our 2018 report called Smart Government – The Big Balancing Act, highlights the situation.

Unified Hybrid Cloud Will Be Key to Successful Digital Transformation

Organizations of all types are committed to the potential of cloud to transform how they do business, with adoption of external cloud services nearly ubiquitous at this point. However, the realities and challenges of cloud execution see most businesses choosing not to go ‘all in’ on public cloud and instead turning to hybrid cloud strategies to get the most from their IT operations. The requirements of the specific applications define the value they receive from both on-premises and off-premises environments.

For hybrid cloud deployments to ...

Container Security 101 UNDERSTANDING THE BASICS OF SECURING CONTAINERS

By now it’s apparent to cybersecurity teams everywhere that the proverbial container genie is out of the bottle. Developers have widely embraced containers because they make building and deploying so- called cloud native applications simpler than ever. Not only do containers eliminate much of the friction typically associated with moving application code from testing through to production, application code packaged up as containers can also run anywhere. All the dependencies associated with any application are included within the containerized ...

THE STATE OF CLOUD NATIVE SECURTIY

Today, the focus is less on the hardware underlying computing and more on the application itself – the thing that delivers actual value. We abstract computing away from the hardware as much as possible, in myriad ways: the concept of the cloud itself, as well as the specific technologies for operating in the cloud, such as virtual machines (VMs), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), containers, managed container services such as Kubernetes and more.

As we adopt all these enabling technologies, we introduce a new ...

The State of Remote Working

Prior to COVID-19, most organizations had remote work capabilities in place. But, the pandemic has caused even the most-prepared IT leaders to re-evaluate their readiness to support remote work, at scale. To gain insights into the IT capabilities necessary to ensure business continuity and workforce productivity, now and for the “next norm”, we conducted a TechValidate1 survey to our customer base in April 2020.

Here’s what we learned: ...
