Digital Governments are the future
Cloud strategies are maturing & here’s what we – thanks to Gartner – know.
- 32% of the total Asia Pacific IT budget is spent on cloud services.
- 41% of Australia and 44% of New Zealand organisations now have an enterprise-wide cloud strategy.
- 50% of government organisations will establish formal accountability structures for data sharing, by the end of 2023.
- 75% of governments will operate more than half of workloads using hyperscale cloud service providers by 2025.
With the Australian Government’s ambition to transform into one of the world’s top three digital governments by 2025, IT infrastructure, operations and cloud are critical in providing the foundation by helping to scale digital initiatives throughout their enterprise and enable platform-led agility.
Leading governments are under pressure to break down legacy, siloed systems, and data stores to modernise IT infrastructure and applications to ensure more resilient government services. And as infrastructure evolves, so does the usage of cloud services. Gartner predicts over 75% of governments will operate more than half of workloads using hyperscale cloud service providers by 2025.
It’s critical for IT Infrastructure leaders to be active contributors to their Agency’s digital success by helping to scale digital initiatives throughout the organisation and enable platform-led agility, improved service delivery, and Customer Experience.
Government agencies are required to consider cloud services in every new or reformed ICT sourcing, procurement, or market approach. When making the decision to migrate to cloud, you need a strong and capable partner to help get you there and provide ongoing management. Blue Crystal Solutions (BCS) is conveniently located in 5 locations across the country to provide cloud consulting, design, build, migration and support, including operating systems, applications, and databases with a focus on security.
We are also on the South Australian Government’s Managed Platform Services Panel for the provision of Hyperscale Cloud Management.
Security is (y)our top priority.
Gartner recommends that security and risk management leaders in critical infrastructure sectors develop a holistic approach to security, so that IT, OT and Internet of Things (IoT) security are managed in a coordinated effort.
Our capability has been helping many of our clients transform into more secure IT environments, enhancing their security posture whilst maximising their efficiency, productivity and growth.
