Core's solution for government is a unique blended managed service offering that is tiered to provide the best of public, private hosted and managed on-premises IT services. It comprises four main elements: hosting, management of desktops and devices, identity and access management and 24 hour support.
The solution delivers increased productivity, reduced costs and a greater freedom for the user to work where they want, when they want and how they want creating a more engaged workforce.
The government spending review highlighted the need for a further £11.5bn to be cut from the budget, continuing the pressure on local and central government to reduced spending while increasing efficiency.
One area of particular focus is ICT transformation. All departments and public bodies are under pressure to drive down cost, while increasing efficiency without compromising security, accessibility and performance. The Cloud First policy is one of the ways the Government is pushing through reform in this space, inviting local and central government to consider cloud solutions for their IT requirements. Moving to the cloud offers significant improvements in flexibility and efficiency, as well as reductions in cost.
We created Aurora in response to the challenges faced by local and central government. Aurora is the Identity and Access management portal through which clients and users access infrastructure, software and security services. Aurora forms a critical part of Core's Solution for government and after submission of a Risk Management Document Set is certified at 'Official Level' security.
We have implemented this service to UK Trade and Investment with great success, delivering a 40% saving per user whilst obtaining Official level security accreditation from the Communications Electronics Security Group (CESG).
