Solution Brief

The Digital Transformation of UK Government Services

The Challenge

Government organisations in the United Kingdom are modernising IT infrastructures to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations and services. More specifically, central and local governments are adopting the public cloud to gain agility, flexibility, and control. However, without a defined approach for managing cloud infrastructure or easy access to secure information, government organisations are making decisions in silos and are consequently unable to control their cloud consumption. 

The Cloud Centre of Excellence

As the digitisation of public services continues, organisations are establishing a cross-functional group, commonly referred to as a Cloud Centre of Excellence (CCoE), to support and govern the execution of the organisation's cloud strategy. Members of the CCoE are seen as advisors who provide best practices, architectural standards, and guidance to agencies and departments across three areas of excellence: cloud financial management, operations, and security and compliance. A CCoE is intended to be a long-term entity, often nurturing a cultural change in the way an organisation adopts new technology and processes. 

“I think the cloud centre of excellence is really an office of collaboration between all the different functions and stakeholders involved in the movement to the cloud.”
