Can the As-a-Service model deliver service improvement and cost benefits?
With the Whole of Government IT portfolio gradually shifting from Department of Finance to the Digital Transformation Agency, attention is focussed on future strategy for the Public Sector. One of the core projects for the DTA will be centred around cloud services and increasing adoption across Agencies.
The recent growth of providers on the cloud panel, coupled with the creation of the Digital Marketplace, has increased the opportunity for Government to transition to a consumption based IT model. However current challenges have restricted adoption with only 0.5% of federal government IT in the cloud.
From culture to legacy systems and security, outdated business processes and access to the right talent, the challenges are significant. The Overcoming the Challenges of As-a-Service conference will bring together leaders and practitioners tasked with leading the transition away from ‘in house’ solutions.
