If there’s one thing that stands out about central government, it’s the appetite for digital transformation. Whether delivering new customer-facing websites to drive better engagement with services or establishing a centre of excellence to accelerate the take-up of robotic process automation (RPA), UK government is embracing opportunities to modernise with new technologies.
But despite the great strides made in the last few years, the UK is slipping backwards in E-Government development terms – down from #1 in 2016 to #4 in 2018, according to the UN E-Government Survey 2018. Some argue this is due to the government having tackled the more straightforward digitisation opportunities and because it is now facing the bigger, more complex systems that need modernising. Our research shows that there are also wider challenges, including uncertainty around the impact of Brexit, budgetary pressures and emerging technologies, coming into play.
So what needs to happen to overcome our challenges

Cloud computing is rapidly changing enterprise IT with applications like Salesforce and Office 365, which are improving productivity, reducing costs, and simplifying management.
Now, organizations are discovering that those same advantages can be achieved by migrating security to the cloud. In fact, in its 2016 Magic Quadrant report on Secure Web Gateways, Gartner reported, “Cloud services have experienced a 35% five-year compound annual growth rate, while on-premises appliances have only grown by 6% during the same period.”
Organizations understand that protecting users with a consistent and enforceable policy requires much more than simple URL or web filtering. Thousands of companies have already switched their IT security from appliances to experience the benefits of the Zscaler™ Security Cloud. Download this whitepaper today to find out why.

As customers demand and expect more of a digitized experience, the scale and volume of secure data that’s being transmitted across the network is increasing exponentially. At the same time, across the APAC region high digital connectivity, contrasted with low cybersecurity awareness, growing cross-border data transfers and weak regulations have made this data a global target.
The growth in the “as-a-service” nature of the cybercrime marketplace is also fueling an increase in the number of traditional crime groups and individuals drawn into cyber offending. New sources of vulnerability from mobile, BYOD, CYOD, web-services and IoT devices are further broadening the cyber threat landscape with ever-more sophisticated forms of malware and DDoS attacks.

Consumers worldwide continue to adopt and use technology in their shopping experience.
Faced with rising customer expectations and increasing competitive pressures, retailers
now are prioritizing in-store innovation. Many retailers have adopted multichannel
implementations, in which mobile, web, and in-store shopping are enabled but not delivered
consistently to the customer. The next step in this evolution is an omnichannel strategy, now
being deployed by some retailers, which presents a consistent shopping experience across
mobile, web, and in-store channels. Omnichannel also enables retailers to integrate back-end
infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, databases, etc.) and cloud-based services (e.g., loyalty
programs, personalized recommendations, inventory management, etc.) to improve many
aspects of store and enterprise operations.
An omnichannel strategy relies on several core and supporting technologies. The key factors in
evaluating any omnichannel-enabling solution includ
While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host
of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace
of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts
to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and
events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently
updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another
dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple
screens across devices.
To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile,
high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective
online distribution channel. This requires f
The ways in which the Internet supports our everyday lives have become richer, more engaging, and more mobile. This innovation is driven by the visionaries, designers, developers, and managers of the web experiences that users consume every day. By exploring new ways to solve challenges and improve products and services that enrich our lives, developers and business owners have stretched the Internet to support use cases for which it was never designed. In order to succeed, modern web experiences must seem simple to end-users, even though most ultimately require complex design and technology to deliver.
The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Amazon Redshift Spectrum—a single service that can be used in conjunction with other Amazon services and products, as well as external tools—is revolutionizing the way data is stored and queried, allowing for more complex analyses and better decision making.
Spectrum allows users to query very large datasets on S3 without having to load them into Amazon Redshift. This helps address the Scalability Dilemma—with Spectrum, data storage can keep growing on S3 and still be processed. By utilizing its own compute power and memory, Spectrum handles the hard work that would normally be done by Amazon Redshift. With this service, users can now scale to accommodate larger amounts of data than the cluster would have been capable of processing with its own resources.
AbeBooks, with Amazon Redshift, has been able to upgrade to a comprehensive data warehouse with the enlistment of Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift. In this case study, we share AbeBooks’ data warehouse success story.
As a cloud-based business services suite, Microsoft® Office 365™ provides organizations with access to web, mobile and desktop versions of traditional Office software tools, cloud storage space for enterprise file sharing, and hosted services for communication and social.

For many companies the appeal of the public cloud is very real. For tech startups, the cloud may be their
only option, since many don’t have the capital or expertise to build and operate the IT systems their
businesses need. Existing companies with established data centers are also looking at public clouds, to
increase IT agility while limiting risk. The idea of building-out their production capacity while possibly
reducing the costs attached to that infrastructure can be attractive. For most companies the cloud isn’t
an “either-or” decision, but an operating model to be evaluated along with on-site infrastructure. And
like most infrastructure decisions the question of cost is certainly a consideration.
In this report we’ll explore that question, comparing the cost of an on-site hyperconverged solution with
a comparable set up in the cloud. The on-site infrastructure is a Dell EMC VxRailTM hyperconverged
appliance cluster and the cloud solution is Amazon Web Services (AWS).
One of the value propositions of an Internet of Things (IoT) strategy is the ability to provide insight that was previously invisible to the business. But before a business can develop a strategy for IoT, it needs a platform that meets the foundational principles of an IoT solution. Amazon Web Services (AWS) believes in some basic freedoms that are driving organizational and economic benefits of the cloud into businesses. These freedoms are why more than a million customers already use the AWS platform to support virtually any cloud workload. These freedoms are also why AWS is proving itself as the primary catalyst to any Internet of Things strategy across commercial, consumer, and industrial solutions.
This paper outlines core tenets that should be considered when developing an IoT strategy, the benefits of AWS in that strategy and how the AWS cloud platform can be the critical component supporting those core tenets.
