Logicalis Unveils Evolutionary Approach to Achieving Public Sector Shared Service & Community G-Cloud Success

UK Leader in Shared Service Communications Networks Outlines Practical Methods to Help Accelerate Public Sector Adoption

Slough, UK, 7th July 2010 - International solutions provider, Logicalis, is unveiling proven best practice steps on how public sector organisations can make the transition from on-site lean data centre, to a shared services data centre and eventually a Community G-Cloud. To help accelerate the adoption of these efficient public sector IT strategies, Logicalis has launched a series of dedicated workshops that provide a practical and pragmatic approach to designing, building and migrating to a shared services environment.

Applicable to all levels of IT personnel, the 'Public Sector Lean Virtual Data Centre and Local G-Cloud' workshops will include sessions on:

  • Architecting an IT service led lean data centre - methodology and technology building blocks

  • Virtual lean data centre principles - virtualisation isn't just about servers

  • Constructing a local and community G-Cloud service

  • Practical implementation examples of G-Cloud principles in local government, health and higher education.

During the sessions delegates can draw on Logicalis' experience in partnering with the Welsh Assembly Government to design, build and operate The Public Sector Broadband Aggregation (PSBA) Network, a service which is currently connecting over 2000 public sites across Wales.

Simon Daykin, Logicalis UK chief technology officer and architect of Logicalis' recently launched Cooperative Enterprise Cloud Service, designed for adoption as a secure multi-tenant government shared service, will host the workshops:

"As Logicalis has proven with the PSBA in Wales, creating secure shared service models that are technically and commercially successful is achievable. These do not have to be Cabinet Office led initiatives, but instead work best and most efficiently at local and regional community levels."

Workshops will take place throughout the summer, with the following events open for registration:

  • Warrington - Tuesday 13th July

  • Leeds - Tuesday 20th July

  • Cardiff - Thursday 22nd July

  • London - Wednesday 15th September and Thursday 14th October

  • Delegates can register for workshops here.

Daykin concludes, "From our engagement with public sector organisations to define shared data centre and cloud services, it is clear that there is a willingness and eagerness to adopt shared services, but we must assuage architectural and operational concerns at the deployment level. These workshops will outline how the public sector can make a smooth transition from on-site data centres to embrace the commercial benefits of a shared environment."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
