Our Executive Briefing Programme research found that cloud strategy within local authorities is still developing – for example with only 39% saying they have a cloud IT policy in place.

Today many local authorities are considering public cloud for its flexibility and broad service offering. However, there are misconceptions about public cloud’s suitability for local government - for example around data security - and questions around the best way to approach cloud adoption.


Given these issues this video will:

  • Explore the misconceptions about public cloud’s suitability for local government
  • Provide a real-world example from Aylesbury Vale District Council’s experiences of migrating to AWS
  • Examine the future for public cloud use within local government.

Our speakers were Maryvonne Hassall, IT Strategy Manager at Aylesbury Vale District Council Mark Ebden, Technical Consultant, Eduserv
