Benefits of Cloud Technology
The benefits of cloud technology are clear: shared responsibility with cloud providers, greater business agility and flexibility, cost efficient operating models, improved security, increased operational resilience, better end-user experiences, and faster time to market.
With mass migrations to cloud, we understand that there is growing pressure to demonstrate tangible business outcomes, benefits, and ROI. While businesses are extracting some of the benefits of cloud technology, they are facing challenges without fully realising the value, including optimisation.
As cloud technology matures, CIOs and CTO’s must focus on building a secure and flexible cloud ecosystem, understand how to optimise solutions and ensure the technology meets business challenges and objectives.
All whilst managing risk.
We have experience successfully delivering measurable business outcomes and return on investment (ROI) from digital transformation strategies and programmes into a variety of heavily regulated markets, including energy, low carbon, and financial services, as well as the health and public sector.
We will support customers end-to-end, or at any point on their cloud journey.
We know every customer is unique.
We deliver cloud strategy, governance, and optimisation solutions that are tailored to your precise business needs, to drive improved ROI on tech investments, improve operational resilience, business agility and staff productivity.
We ensure sector specific regulatory compliance – uniquely in energy, where we are the driving force behind building the new, digitally transformed switching arrangements under the Retail Energy Code (REC), and managing the smart metering program rollout for Smart Energy Code (SEC).
Safeguarding against risk is built into all of our cloud strategies and programmes for full compliance and assurance.
Increase business agility by reducing operational complexity
We will demonstrate that a shared responsibility model means no hardware management.
We will utilise cloud services to improve management and move away from traditional processes.
Budget planning and enforcement for lower costs
Cloud investment will ensure there is a reduction on capital expenditure on hardware, allowing increased flexibility to upscale/downscale resources as required, saving costs.
Automate compliance and reporting
Proven evidence in compliance to market regulations (SEC and REC) demonstrates we will utilise policy and compliance tools to centralise enforcement across workloads and reporting.
Establish security governance whilst remaining agile
We will enforce security at scale, reduce complexity from legacy infrastructure and provide a central management of accounts and resources.
