techUK to host Local Government and Police Cloud Clinic

The UK Government has recognised and shown commitment to adopting cloud computing, but what benefit is the public sector actually set to gain by moving to the cloud?

On Monday 23 January, techUK will be hosting a cloud clinic, aimed at local government and policing organisations, to help organisations understand how cloud can be an enabler on their digital transformation journey.

Speakers include Dylan Roberts, Chief Digital Officer at Leeds City Council, Gavin Mee, Area Vice President for Enterprise at Salesforce and Andrew Gough, Client Services Development Director at Agilisys, who will be on a panel at the event to discuss Digital transformation and your journey to cloud. Working with the public sector for over 15 years, Andrew will draw on Agilisys’ experience and share best practice from the organisations who see cloud as key to delivering their ambition for end-to-end digital transformation.

The panel will be chaired by Georgina Maratheftis, Programme Manager Local Government at techUK.
