A new survey suggests that the number of organisations planning to migrate core IT infrastructure to the cloud will considerably rise next year.
The report surveyed more than 200 govtech leaders responsible for cloud services and technology transformation and found that 80% of public sector organisations plan to migrate in the next 18 months.
Respondents pointed to health (76%) and social care (77%) as areas where service quality is poised to be most transformed by cloud capabilities. This could be due to the recent “tech vision” set out for the NHS, and the Home Office’s desire to migrate all national-level police IT.
However, the results highlight capacity and capability shortfalls with two-thirds (63%) emphasising third-party assistance is essential for implementation and optimisation.
