The Public Sector Cloud conference will take place at the University of Salford on the 6th December. The event will bring together leading experts of IoT and Digital Infrastructure. Speakers will share their views on the development of cloud based systems within government and education, the constant pressure for councils to migrate to a 'Cloud First' initiative is a broad concern, however as integrated systems and legacy operations have been in place for so long, the transition will certainly take time and money to achieve.
With added cost, cloud transition seems a time away as budget pressures are an overwhelming concern, made worse by the constant scrutiny of the media spotlight. We will be offering a case study on the day of success stories experienced by local councils and public institutes. The overall day will be directed to ensure that our delegates are made aware of the obstacles and challenges ahead, ensuring they see a discernible path to updating their systems gradually and progressively.
