‘The Local State We’re In’ survey from PWC this year showed that austerity is still putting councils under a lot pressure.
We work closely with councils and local authorities across the UK to revolutionise how they engage with the public and embrace a digital transformation.
This often involves in-depth reviews of how and where the councils manage data. With more and more moving to the cloud and utilising SaaS applications, extensive work is being carried out to optimise how they collaborate to drive the change needed to meet the challenges of the next decade.
The foundation of all of this is the network; and the way it is engineered will either impede or accelerate these strategies – especially as the dependence on real time applications, distributed workforces and cloud computing is ever growing.
Running alongside these network optimisation strategies is also a focus on cyber security. Even the fastest and most efficient network is useless if the public’s data is accessible for hackers to steal. This is why we also work with local government to ensure the very best cyber security solutions are deployed across their IT networks.
