Cloud computing

The UK public sector is dynamic. Government departments must transform the way they interact with citizens by shifting to online services to create cost savings, efficiencies and increased productivity.

Cloud computing is key to this transformation. It offers:

  • Cost savings by avoiding upfront investments in infrastructure
  • Flexibility to trial new services or make changes with minimal cost
  • Elasticity to scale up or down usage as demand rises and falls
  • Up to date security patches and upgrades

Along with this revolution comes questions around how to migrate to the cloud, how to transfer legacy apps and how to deal with sensitive data in a cloud first era. FCO Services completely understands these concerns because as an in-government department, we also have to adhere to government’s policy like you. We also understand value for money, we are not driven by profit, we focus heavily on working in partnership with our customers in a transparent and open environment.

Security is at the heart of everything we do. Our DV/SC security cleared teams are expert in front and back end transformations, private cloud hosting, security operations centres, biometrics authentication and data handling at all security classifications and privacy markings. We are also the UK National Authority for Counter Eavesdropping which assures all our digital solutions. Whether you are looking for advice on how to move to the cloud through to hosting services, we are here to help.
