Exciting news from Konica Minolta – we’ve been awarded a place on the G-Cloud 10 framework and are delighted to support the Public Sector on its Cloud First and digital transformation journey with Managed Cloud Hosting services.
Why the excitement?
Our relationship with Public Sector organisations goes way back in time – to before the existence of the internet and cloud solutions – so we know a thing or two about the challenges they face. That’s why we made it a priority to offer our services on G-Cloud 10 to ensure that we’re in a strong position to help.
When it comes to Cloud adoption in Public Sector, it’s clear from evidence that good intent and desire exists to make this transition however, there’s still a long way to go especially when the all-important governance and security standards, in areas such as justice, education and healthcare, make quick deployment of new technology difficult.
So, while the outlook remains cautious, we anticipate that the uptake of cloud services will continue to increase at pace, based on solid facts and some very reassuring first hand evidence:
It’s a fact. The number of organisations looking at the opportunities cloud brings is growing. A recent study by the Cloud Industry Forum* shows that 82% of public sector organisations have already adopted cloud services, up by 20% on the previous year, demonstrating how rapidly the sector has come to see cloud as an acceptable and essential IT delivery model.
Word of mouth. Every year, Konica Minolta supports around 60 events and exhibitions in Public Sector alone. Increasingly we are asked “can we put that service in the cloud?” and the answer is yes. Yes we can.
In fact, we can answer yes in multiple ways. From a straightforward hosted print solution to being able to provide the highest levels of security with a bespoke engineered model from our technical architects, our focus is firmly on the future and to help Public Sector organisations understand the benefits and take advantage of the many rapid advances in digital technology, including managed cloud hosting services, AI, automation for smarter workplaces, and more.
