Coalition Government Unveils Roadmap To Implement Its Cloud Intensive ICT Strategy

eGov monitor - Cloud computing would be a key pillar in the government’s aim to implement its ICT strategy and receive 50% of Whitehall spending in ICT over the next four years, according to the Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) published by the cabinet office.  

The Government Cloud Authority is expected to unveil its strategy to achieve the 50% spending objective laid out in the SIP.  A new group, Cloud Services Group, has been set up in Whitehall to engage with suppliers on implementing cloud computing.

The SIP details out the plans to achieve the objectives laid out in the government’s ICT strategy in March this year.  The ICT strategy is expected to deliver £1.4 Billion in savings over the course of this parliament while making public services “digital by default”.
