Cloud Recovery – Keeping Data, Technology and People Available

The drive towards the Digital Transformation of Government services will not only bring about greater efficiency and levels of service, but will also create new challenges for IT professionals.

With a more information being stored in the cloud and a use of hybrid environments to enable the continued use of legacy applications, the big question is – what do you do if or when it all goes wrong? How do you keep the fundamentals of your data, technology and people working as normal?

During this session, Sungard AS will describe how we can provide all of the key components you need to thrive in a Hybrid world; from a Technological, Performance, Financial, Governance and Resourcing perspective. Our Consulting Services, provides Architectural, Service and Economic Assessments, as well as the expertise you can rely on to deliver it.

We will look at how to keep platforms available to front-line and back-end users, and what you need to ensure a fully functional recovery solution.

We will discuss the options of Recover to Cloud and the benefits of having a Managed Recovery Programme in place. The session will also cover what these recovery options mean for applications as part of a hybrid IT environment.

Finally, we will look at the options available to Government organisations and how these have been implemented within the public sector.

Key learning points:

  • How to manage your recovery in terms of data, technology and people – ensuring platforms are always available
  • Hybrid IT environments and how to include these in your recovery plan away from hyper-scale cloud
  • What digital transformation can bring your organisation to aid business continuity

Cloud services form part of most organisations digital transformation plans. They help reduce costs while allowing users to leverage the latest technologies and be more productive.But there are some common blockers that stop cloud projects before they even start. The cost of fixing your identities to federate to cloud services, the cost of connecting your disparate networks to Azure/AWS, or the cost of dealing with your incumbent suppliers who don’t want to lose their revenue to the cloud.

Two Shortcuts to Start your Digital Transformation 

Our talk covers how we’ve already helped a 22,000 user central government department save time & money, and can help you to:

  • Save money by unshackling your network and identity from your incumbent
  • Federate to the cloud without fixing your identity problems
  • Connect multiple departments/networks securely to Azure/AWS/etc through a secure centralised hub

The Agility and Economics of the Cloud

Achieving business agility is relatively straightforward for an organisation with a generous budget. The trick is to do it on a limited budget. This is where the cloud enters the picture.

  • Learning how you can achieve business agility in your organization
  • Understanding the efficiencies you can drive, how to position your organisation for digital transformation and where, on the ICT-infrastructure e-business spectrum, you can realise different classes of benefits
  • Providing richer services to citizens, greater flexibility to your workforce, deploying your staff to functions that return higher value and help you to deliver greater impact on your mission

This session will be a thought-provoking journey on how to exploit the digital disruption the cloud brings to government organisations.
