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.

    As the digital era continues to evolve, strategic partnerships in tech are set to become even more important.
    Together with our community of partners, we continue to advance the UK’s national capability in a variety of ways. On one hand, we are providing better outcomes and better efficiencies through the use of digital technologies in the public sector. On the other hand, our partnerships foster a community with a collective vision to grow and develop the UK technology sector as part of the post-Brexit industrial strategy.
    To build upon and explore the benefits of strategic partnerships in a tech era, we're delighted to host our “Powered by Partnerships” event at 3pm on Thursday 10th December 2020.

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.

    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.

  • 7 reasons the UK public sector needs to think cloud, in fact, hybrid cloud. Recorded: Sep 10 2020 60 mins
    UKCloud to be joined by special guests from VMware and TechUK
    We believe that the UK’s public services are a genuine national asset that needs to be protected and nurtured to ensure they're delivered securely, efficiently and effectively. Needs are diverse and specialist, and so organisations need the flexibility to mix and match multi-cloud technologies with solutions that aim to reduce time to value, costs, and the risk of modernising your existing legacy IT estate.

    We’ve identified 7 reasons that the UK Public Sector need to think cloud so that they can develop an affordable and actionable IT modernisation strategy.

    On this webinar, our panel of experts will discuss the challenges of:

    • Sprawling network estate
    • High risk of failure due to ageing hardware
    • Compliance and regulatory challenges
    • DC Lease renewal
    • Lack of visibility across IT estates
    • Lack of skills and resource
    • Existing reliance on local Apps

    And how you can accelerate and de-risk your transformation.
  • Healthcare IT: Back to Normal or Back to Better? Recorded: Jul 3 2020 63 mins
    Cleveland Henry, UKCloud Health, Chris Feltham, Intel, Adrian Smith, NHS Arden, and Andy Callow, Kettering General Hospital
    There is no doubt the pandemic has seen the rapid deployment and adoption of tools and technology across the health sector, seen in virtual/remote clinics, home working, and the digital advances that have improved access to care.

    The result has seen patients being empowered, as well as an increase in momentum and the earlier than anticipated use of remote patient monitoring that can anticipate and predict demand. In fact, it has been said that “4 years of Digital Transformation has taken place in 6 weeks”.

    As such, the next challenge is "what next?" - is it the start of sustainable transformation with technology, or will there be a return to the previous normal? A  NHS leader has recently said it will be "back to better"; join this webinar to find out what that actually means and where the opportunities lay.
