Cloud Services in the Public Sector 2020

The cloud has the potential to boost public services on a scale that's unparalleled since the introduction of mainstream IT.  

A core tenet of the Scottish Government's Digital Strategy, the importance of cloud to the public sector was underlined by the disruptive impact of COVID-19 on traditional ways of working and service provision.

Recognising the cloud as essential to the future of digital services, the Scottish Government recently published a policy statement reaffirming its commitment to a Cloud First approach to the delivery of digital services across Scotland's public sector.

In light of these developments, Holyrood Connect will host Cloud Services in the Public Sector 2020 in partnership with the Scottish Government.


Taking place virtually, sessions will be spread over two days in a variety of formats, with delegates gaining a strategic understanding of how to manage a transition to cloud services within their organisations. This is an opportunity to hear cutting-edge analysis and examples of best practice from industry leaders and inspirational speakers from across the United Kingdom.

This conference is free-to-attend for anyone in the public sector. By taking part you will be eligible for up to six CPD points.
