The Public Sector in a Cloud First, Mobile First World

Microsoft offers its vision for organisations navigating a cloud-first, mobile-first world.

With greater emphasis on creating smarter, more agile services, organisations across the public sector are embracing digital transformation. In the Health sector, NHS Trusts such as East Kent Hospitals University NHS and Brighton and Sussex Trust are using technology to reduce treatment delays.

Likewise, local councils such as Camden Council and Newcastle City Council have used technology such as Skype for Business to establish a more flexible way of working to improve productivity and reduce office costs.

But there is more that can be done, suggests GDS Executive Stephen Foreshew-Cain.

Speaking at the Government Digital Service conference, Sprint 16, earlier this year, Foreshew-Cain encouraged participants and observers to “be bold” in their approach to transforming government together.

Given the right direction, tools, and partners, the opportunity is greater than the challenge.

For example, public sector organisations looking to the Cloud as a change catalyst want the transformation but also the reassurance that data – be it constituent data, military security, police information or health record – are secure. Here Microsoft can help. The mix of Office and Windows provides the freedom, but you want the security/peace of mind of an Enterprise Mobility Management solution.

How can Microsoft help?

Microsoft’s vision is to provide a solution that meets the needs of today’s modern workplace.  A solution that will help you to protect your data, manage the growing number of mobile devices, unify environments that span OS’s and enable seamless collaboration across for your workers across all their devices.

With Microsoft, the ability to bring together users and IT goes beyond individual solutions for solving individual problems.  It is only when services and devices are used together that they bring a new level of value to our customers. Simply put, the sum of the solutions together is greater than their parts.

This solution is Office 365 + the Enterprise Mobility Suite + Windows Enterprise.  These solutions will help you thrive in the modern workplace and empower users with best-in-class productivity across devices while providing IT with the tools they need to help maintain security and control.

Our Enterprise Mobility Workshops are designed to show how these challenges can become opportunities leveraging our core enterprise mobility solutions, without adding unnecessary cost or complexity.

Register today to learn how your organisation can benefit from our solutions, regardless of size or appetite for the cloud
