IT SERVICES & CLOUD SOLUTIONS
At OGEL IT LTD. we guide organisations to adopt cloud based solutions that maximise productivity and simplifies day to day system management. Our systems are designed specifically to transforms current digital services, and provide access to additional capabilities and expertise, by utilising cloud and ‘off the shelf’ technologies and easing pressure on in house IT teams and the challenges they face in keeping up with the constant evolving change in cloud platforms.
The ‘cloud’ is a perplexing enigma for most people. It is a term widely used, but often misunderstood. Simply, cloud technologies allow access to digital resources (Virtual machines, storage accounts, web apps, databases, etc.) stored in a virtual space (off site server) and accessed by means of networks. It allows shared resources without the restrictions of a physical location and in fact, eliminates the need for physical data storage locations all together.
In short, cloud technology will provide organisations with limitless storage capacity, operational agility based on individual needs, better collaboration with users due to global remote access, reduces capital expenditures on physical storage location and software purchases, and provides back up and recovery solutions for those unexpected disasters.
TECHNOLOGICAL INOVATION AND DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION – PUBLIC SECTOR
In a recent study conducted by CIF (Cloud Industry Forum), the UK Cloud adoption rate now stands at 88%. With 67% of those looking to increase their currently cloud based services. It was also noted that there has been a significant increase in cloud adoption rates within the small and public sectors. The public sector alone saw an increase as high as 62% within a year. (1)
In 2013 the government introduced the ‘Cloud First’ policy for all technology decisions which outlines, “When procuring new or existing services, public sector organisations should consider and fully evaluate potential cloud solutions first before considering any other option. This approach is mandatory for central government and strongly recommended to the wider public sector”. (2) Followed by the Secretary of State for Health’s policy paper - The future of healthcare: our vision for digital, data and technology in health and care’ (3) in October 2018, where he states that “the gap between where we are and where we want to be is only getting bigger.
We need to take a radical new approach to technology across the system and stop the narrative that it’s too difficult to do it right in health and care.
The UK has the chance to lead the world on healthtech”. Further reading of the policy paper outlines the benefits the NHS will procure when adopting the ‘Cloud First’ policy which falls in line with the guidance published by NHS Digital (4) in January 2018 and states how the NHS will benefit from the Cloud based services on multiple levels including the support, resilience, back up and expertise of some of the most cyber aware providers, the ability to grow projects that work with an infinite amount of data and unpredictable processing needs, the capability to instantly share and access data globally increasing productivity and the daily management of the system and software to prevent massive migration projects resulting in delays, system downtimes and high cost.
