The New Zealand governments' Cloud First policy requires public sector organisations to accelerate and adopt cloud-based services in preference to traditional IT systems. The Government Chief Information Officer (GCIO) and the New Zealand Intelligence Community (NZIC) have worked collaboratively to identify opportunities to accelerate the use of public cloud services in a way that balances opportunity and risk. The review focused on public cloud services – used by multiple organisations from different industries, including private and government sectors because they have economies of scale that reduce costs and generally improve resilience and security, compared with other technology delivery models.
While most agencies recognise the benefits of public cloud services, a common barrier is often not knowing where to start. By accepting that digital transformation is a journey that can be taken step by step, an agency is able to reduce the challenges it faces into more manageable tasks, and by working with a third party that understands and can meet the challenges of the hybrid environment, it is more likely to be on the path to success.
With the rise of hybrid working, cloud technology is becoming a crucial backbone of the new normal. Our guide delivers essential information to implement digital change successfully through the adoption of cloud-based print services.
