Public sector IT challengesUntangle your legacy systems
The public sector is at an inflection point: resource cuts are happening alongside rapid technological change, which offers huge potential for performance and efficiency. In this climate, every IT decision counts.
As a specialist IT provider to the public sector and charities, we understand both the challenge and potential.
We’re working with many leading UK government and third sector organisations to assess, design, plan and implement significant transformation projects to deliver long-term value – including service modernisation, consolidation and migration to new secure cloud or virtualised platforms.
Many large organisations are limited by:
- Hosting arrangements with a variety of different providers, with inappropriate and often gold-plated SLAs
- Disparate legacy technical systems - many based on physical rather than virtual infrastructures
- A multitude of databases, business applications and underlying platforms
- Ad hoc development, test and release processes
- Inconsistent, fragile or non-existent formal disaster recovery process
Helping you achieve your goals
Our transformation services will guide you towards a more efficient, effective and sustainable approach to IT, helping you to:
For example by reducing the number of hosting contracts and consolidating infrastructure and websites across your department and partner agencies.
Be agile and ready for the future
By auditing and rationalising your IT infrastructure, you’ll know exactly where all your information is stored in readiness for cloud adoption. We can implement IL2 and IL3 private or multi-tenant clouds, and we're on the G-Cloud and Janet frameworks.
By helping you deliver more services online, we can increase engagement with your key audiences and reduce reliance on phone or face-to-face contact – freeing up resources and reducing costs.
Be open and transparent
We can help make your public data more accessible, securely and using the appropriate standards, making it available for citizens and for wholesale distribution, for example through national media.
Meet energy targets
Our expertise can help you meet your CRC Energy Efficiency targets through server rationalisation, virtualisation and cloud solutions.
Enjoy flexible contracts
We don’t believe in tying customers into long-term contracts but in giving you the freedom of a more flexible approach. We can offer short contracts – or even pay as you go. Our customers stay with us because they want to.
Using a well-defined framework, our project management team specialise in managing large government projects and has worked with dozens of public sector organisations.
Business Consultancy and Business Case Production
We’ll liaise with you on your current business model, your vision for a transformed model, expected business outcomes, budget and risks. We can also support or deliver an underpinning business case with business owners and specialist partners as appropriate.
We can work with customer IT management, technical and security specialists to assess your requirements. As an option, we can also provide a Discovery and IT Transformation Analysis Report with an overview of the legacy IT service portfolio, and an outline proposal for transformation, including a road map.
Transformation Programme Management
Our experienced team will take care of the definition, initiation, control and risk management, including technical, service and commercial sub-projects and stages – using a PRINCE2 framework. We’ll also oversee moves from legacy models to agreed target models.
Cloud Migration Services
We’re a cloud service provider with experience of designing and providing community and private IaaS and PaaS cloud platforms up to security impact level 3.
We provide ITIL-based service management, ensuring effective monitoring and control against committed customer SLAs, service improvement, process compliance and reporting.
