Cloud Services Review

Cloud computing continues to be one of the biggest trends in ICT, offering the potential to reduce the cost of data centre hosting, infrastructure and support across the public sector, and is therefore a key component of the Scottish Government digital strategy.


Our cloud services review project will better inform councils of the costs/benefits of cloud services - providing examples of best practice. It will provide positioning and guidance for financial budgeting for cloud services, cost-benefit analysis, and address security/data protection, workforce/skills, and support complexity concerns.
