Session 1: Total Mobile

Session 2: Justin Day - CEO - Cloud Gateway

Cloud Connectivity in a post-PSN world

The uptake of cloud services is no longer in the stages of early adoption. It has fast become the mainstay in Government, providing technical, commercial and business benefits far beyond the realms of what Government has been used to before. And it was Government that very much led the way in the UK through innovative proposals that came from GDS, supporting the ‘digital-by-default’ message. But ‘going first’ can yield initial benefits as well as provide the ‘lessons learned’ for those who took a more cautious step.

The exploration of ‘what has worked well and what has not’ also allows us to take a look into the growth of multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud. But this time, we will look to talk about the elephant in the room as well, the PSN. How can we bring all of the many meshed cross-network governments and allow them to transform, whilst continuing to support critical services. And whilst ‘The Internet is OK’, when is ‘good enough, good enough’?
