Threats and Opportunities in Adopting Cloud – A CIO Perspective

Attitudes vary when it comes to security in the cloud. Some think that the vulnerabilities are greater than staying on-premise, others see opportunities to improve their security posture by moving to the cloud. The truth is that it is more complex / subtle than that, for example are the threats faced by on-premise capabilities that different from the threats in the cloud. Join UKCloudX CTO Gerry Cantwell as he explores the similarities and differences between on-premise and cloud based capabilities. Our UKCloudX partner community will then showcase their existing cloud based capabilities demonstrating how those threats and vulnerabilities have been addressed.

Important then that decisions on the future state of legacy architectures (both infrastructure and data) are modernised and multi cloud approaches are adopted in the light of requirements around data sovereignty and residency. This talk explores the areas that need to be considered to allow the transformative potential of data to be harnessed.

    The unprecedented events of the last 12 months have led organisations in the public sector to appreciate the real value of the data they hold, and its vital role in allowing them to deliver services to an increasingly expectant and demanding public. But, while there is optimism around the ability of organisations to explore new technologies that will unlock the value of data, as well as confidence in the skills of their employees to maximise the opportunities it offers for innovation, the reality seems to be that the tools aren’t yet in place to enable this.

  • Digital transformation of health and social care with integrated information Recorded: Nov 3 2020 40 mins
    Paul Targett, RIVIAM
    During the pandemic, it’s become more apparent than ever of the need for healthcare organisations, local councils, third sector and voluntary groups to be able to work together to deliver the best care. But delivering new care models with integrated information is really difficult when information doesn’t easily and securely flow across different systems.

    The transition to a cloud-first approach for digital healthcare solutions has been part of the roadmap for most leading healthcare organisations’ digital strategy. As the volume of digital healthcare enterprises in the market continues to expand, alongside the capability of each product or service to provide value add to healthcare provision and patient experience or outcomes, it is vital that we move to a cloud-based ecosystem of interoperable solutions that enable a streamlined user experience greater than can be achieved by siloed products.

  • Moving from squashed servers in co-located data centers to the cloud Recorded: Nov 3 2020 48 mins
    Chris Eldridge, Mayden
    Mayden’s iaptus predates Instagram “SaaS” and even “Cloud” as a widely used term. 13 years ago selling a patient record system to NHS trusts that they didn’t keep on servers in their basements felt obvious but was probably foolhardy. This is the story of Maydens’ journey from squashed servers in Co-located data centers to the cloud.

    What could possibly go wrong?...
