The rapid pace of society's digital development necessitates that governments update their operating procedures as soon as possible. New strategic directions arose around an open and collaborative model of government, focused on the concepts of effectiveness, efficiency, cooperation, openness, participation, and sustainability.
Hundreds of thousands of customers in government, education, and charitable organisations all across the world rely on the cloud for its functionality, innovation, and experience.
Government, education, charitable, and healthcare organisations all confront distinct obstacles when it comes to completing complicated tasks with limited resources. When it comes to serving citizens more effectively, achieving scientific breakthroughs, reaching a broader constituency, and putting more time and resources into their core missions, public sector leaders who are working on true cloud computing projects overwhelmingly choose Amazon Web Services (AWS) for its power and speed.
Effect of COVID-19
Faster digital transformation and urgent development of digital skills in government were hastened by the COVID-19 epidemic. Now, according to a new IDC study that polled 250 public sector organisations across Europe, we know exactly what IT difficulties they confront.
Research shows that a lack of digital and technological skills is stifling the digital transformation process. Thus the industry is currently struggling to progress further without the essential and speedy upskilling of the workforce in spite of all the huge steps forward during the epidemic — telehealth, remote learning and working, among others.
The study's findings show that:
To supply digital services, 70 per cent of organisations say they're accelerating their cloud migrations, according to new research.
- Of those considering moving to the cloud, 63% cite a lack of knowledge and experience as a deterrent
- Fewer than a third of public sector organisations have a centralised digital skills development programme
- A majority of public sector organisations believe that employee retention is aided by effective career development, including initiatives to improve employees' technical abilities
When it comes to day-to-day operations, 76 per cent of public sector organisations have sought innovative ways to deliver services to residents digitally throughout the pandemic. As a result, 68 per cent of European public sector authorities are speeding up their shift to the cloud in order to ensure future flexibility. A key development in education has been the move to online instruction, which is expected to be a permanent part of the foreseeable future.
Clearly, public sector firms are facing budgetary and operational issues as they seek to improve their technology in response to the increased demand for digital services. This is where the cloud enters the picture.
Benefits of AWS for the public sector
AWS provides low-cost, pay-as-you-go services with no upfront costs or long-term contracts. Our AWS-certified solutions architects can create and operate a global infrastructure at scale, saving money in the long run.
Instant elasticity and agility
AWS offers a vast global cloud infrastructure that enables you to quickly create, test, and iterate. Rather than waiting weeks or months for hardware, you can rapidly deploy new apps, scale up as your workload grows, and scale down as demand decreases.
AWS is a platform that works with any language or operating system. You select the development platform or programming model that best suits your objectives. You have the option of using one or more services, as well as how you utilise them (which we can advise on). This freedom allows you to concentrate on invention rather than infrastructure.
Security experts agree that cloud infrastructure is more secure than on-premises technology. Data encryption at rest and in transit, hardware security modules, and strong physical security all contribute to a more secure approach to managing your infrastructure.
AWS for the public sector
With limited resources, public sector organisations have unique hurdles in accomplishing their missions. When it comes to better serving their clients, raising academic standards, expanding their constituency, and fulfilling their missions, public sector leaders who are tackling true cloud computing initiatives rely heavily on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and its solutions.
We can help you find solutions that will allow you to coordinate action, manage communications, protect constituents, and preserve sensitive data. Faster response times and greater situational awareness lead to improved outcomes.
