    • Transitioning to the cloud Experiences of a UK Government Department Ian Winship, Client Director, Eduserv www.eduserv.org.uk
    • Before the cloud Long term contracts • Primary IT Partner – global SI • Application specific ‘stacks’ – application, maintenance, hosting
    • The opportunity Most existing IT contracts were due to expire during Q1 2013
    • After the cloud
    • Transitioning Use SIAM to arbitrate/set standards Allow time for overlap before current vendor contract expiration • Discovery of re-existing services/assets • Commercial and procurement skills
    • Transitioning Don’t underestimate the effect of new commercial model on business planning • Commissioning and decommissioning systems • Variable monthly changes vs annual or one-off purchase order?
    • Cloud First Products are easier to procure More competition means better value IT systems have less start-up cost Cost profile can reflect usage closely
    • Learnings CloudStore products are not necessarily easy to compare with each other Learning: Shortlist and request clarification
    • Learnings You will be procuring multiple ‘Towers’ at the same time Learning: appoint SIAM first Cross-tower liaison is vital Learning: establish regular cross-supplier technical forum
