UK Smart Government 2019 Data-Driven Transformation - Research Report

Thumb original 109217 v3 ps public sector pov aw online

Transitioning to citizen-centric service delivery, Brexit planning, implementing new digital services and adopting an evidence-based policy development are all transformational undertakings for the UK government and its departments. Thankfully, they all have one critical success factor in common: data. It is the fuel of digital transformation and without fast, always-on access to data, everything will stall. By everything, we mean all data-driven ambitions from the development of new models of service delivery that improve the quality of public services and reduce operating costs to using data, analytics and AI to deliver faster, and more informed decisioning into the hands of all frontline and strategic civil servants for the creation of evidence-based policy.

The digitalisation of services has already gone a long way to cutting operational costs and improving the efficiency of service delivery, but this is only a fraction of what can be achieved through digital transformation. Putting many public services online does go a long way to positioning citizens at the core of government, yet there is much more that can be achieved to improve outcomes. We recently surveyed government IT leaders to understand their views on the progress being made and what factors are putting the brakes on transformation. Some findings from our 2018 report called Smart Government – The Big Balancing Act, highlights the situation.

Unified Hybrid Cloud Will Be Key to Successful Digital Transformation

The requirements of the specific applications define the value they receive from both on-premises and off-premises environments.

For hybrid cloud deployments to ...

Flat Networks Inevitably Fall Flat When Attacked —Using Secure Segmentation To Protect Your Business

Hybrid IT and the adoption of work-from-anywhere (WFA) strategies have led to the exponential expansion of new network edges. And for many organizations, this has resulted in an expanded and fragmented attack surface that has become a perfect opportunity for bad actors to launch cybersecurity attacks from new attack vectors, undermining the ability of network and security leaders to maintain business operations without disruptions.

Traditional flat networks, including network-based segmentation or even micro-segmentation techniques, cannot ...

Protecting Hyperscale Data Centers From Ransomware and Volumetric DDoS Attacks

Enterprises are adopting hybrid IT, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and 5G to gain operational agility. These tools help them build composable and scalable architectures that interconnect distributed branches, campuses, on-premises data centers, and multi-clouds into a unified network. And yet, in the midst of this change, the enterprise on-premises data center remains an essential component of most networks. Its role is vital because it protects applications, data, and workloads that can’t be moved to the cloud but that still need to be ...
