Next wave of digital services will “transform how government uses cloud” Tuesday 24 February 2015 PDF Print The opportunity to be agile and innovative will transform how government uses cloud. Increasing amounts of public, private and hybrid cloud are being used in the delivery of digital services for government. Web Technology Group (WTG) is already helping government departments to take advantage of cloud and its G Cloud 6 submission offers departments a suite of services that will help them scope, develop and deploy applications that securely leverage cloud. Delivering digital services for government since 2002, WTG is ideally placed to help government take advantage of cloud within the appropriate technical and compliance framework. It offers clients a coherent lifecycle for service design, development and maintenance. By supporting clients with specific components or giving them a full, end-to-end service, WTG is enabling the creation and migration of digital services – and giving departments full visibility of lifetime costs and savings. WTG recently completed what is thought to be the first cloud-based intranet in government for the Department of Health. The project delivered GBP300,000 of annual savings for the tax-payer through its use of commodity cloud. WTG has used G Cloud 6 as an opportunity to redevelop its offering to government, offering a full lifecycle for developing digital services and leveraging cloud. It offers clients an end-to-end service or components of its seven-step digital services lifecycle. - Discovery delivers clarity of the strategy, requirements, existing code and infrastructure - Planning includes cloud readiness assessment, architecture and cloud/virtualisation roadmap - Transition supports the movement of existing applications and services to the cloud - Adoption offers clients a way to support legacy applications - Deployment involves the delivery of applications into the production environment - public, private or hybrid cloud - Management guarantees the performance of the services for clients – and their users - Compliance ensures services meet appropriate standards from security to accessibility and compatibility “Cloud offers those delivering digital services a range of benefits,” said James Steventon, WTG’s CEO. “Pure cost-saving is obviously attractive but there are also benefits in terms of the speed of deployment, flexibility and the opportunity to test new services quickly. The opportunity to be agile and innovative will transform how government uses cloud.” Ends Web Technology Group For more information please contact Stephen Morris. firstname.lastname@example.org 07740 931576 Editor’s Note: Web Technology Group (WTG) has a 20-year track record delivering complex, secure and business-critical web applications.
