​Case study UKTI - G-Cloud adoption for Government​

Getting ready for G-Cloud 7? Learn how UKTI previously utilised the Digital Marketplace and the G-Cloud framework to reduce costs and improve efficiency.

Join us on Wednesday 28 October when Andrew Strachan, Acting Director of IT and Information Management at UK Trade & Investment explains the challenges, lessons learned and successes of migrating a multi-site, global government organisation to a secure cloud based IT platform.

As a result UKTI significantly enhanced its IT, reduced cost per user, aligned with the Government's IT Strategy and maintained security... but it wasn't without its challenges.

With G-Cloud 7 scheduled to go live in a matter of weeks, we will look at the benefits of the Digital Marketplace and how it can simplify your procurement.

This half day briefing will be followed by networking drinks and will outline Core's Government solutions delivered for UKTI.

It will examine learning around

  • Accessing systems quickly and easily

  • Working securely in a truly mobile, 24/7 environment

  • Ensuring all security requirements are being met

  • Overcoming integration challenges with inconsistent legacy systems quickly and most cost effectively

  • The importance of managing a staged roll-out – learning points from UKTI

  • Authentication and authorization - Managing passwords and identity management for a large, remote workforce.

Andrew will share some of his key learning points with his Government colleagues. Join us for drinks after the session to take advantage of networking with your peers. We look forward to meeting you on the 28th.
