As we approach one year since the kick-off of the Cloud Migration Service as part of the Cloud First Programme and look ahead to the Scottish Government’s Cloud Service Framework refresh in 2023, it is an ideal time to reflect on cloud migration in the Scottish public sector. With more experience in transition to cloud services than ever before, public sector organisations have learnt lessons to share and are well placed to take next steps toward greater cloud optimisation.
Holyrood Connect’s 4th annual Public Sector Cloud event has returned for another year and will be back in person, having been virtual for the past two years. The event will allow delegates to engage with thought leaders and experts about the progression of cloud migration across the public and third sectors now that we are two years since Covid-induced cloud enthusiasm. Public Sector Cloud 2022 is back on 14th September, in-person at Dynamic Earth located in central Edinburgh.
Delegates will hear from public sector thought leaders and industry experts on a range of topics around the ongoing migration process, lessons learned thus far, and aspects needing attention to continue a successful cloud journey. Sessions of a variety of formats, including panel discussions, case studies, and lightning talks, will delve into elements such as:
- Common challenges within the migration process and the innovative solutions implemented to overcome them.
- The broader shift, including increased skills development and business culture, that needs to occur in organisations when successful cloud migration is the goal.
- Lessons learned along the path towards cloud maturity from local case studies across Scotland.
Sessions at Public Sector Cloud 2022 will allow a broad range of delegates to engage with these topics as we recognise that moving an organisation to cloud services is more than IT transformation—it is a business-wide transformation.
The event is free-to-attend for those working in the public or third sectors. Register now to secure your place. If you work in the private sector, please email us to be added to our waiting list.
