Enabling government cloud computing
Despite the U.K. government mandating central government departments to consider and fully evaluate potential cloud solutions before any other option, only 61% of central government departments are using the public cloud. While IT professionals see cloud and hybrid IT as a strategic priority, many experience challenges with implementation, rollout, or day-to-day performance. These can be mitigated with centralised visibility and comprehensive monitoring and management tools, which play an invaluable role in circumventing these difficulties.

Providing a single-pane-of-glass view
Across disparate departments with huge ranges of responsibility, the U.K. government frequently finds itself trying to manage multiple projects across any number of IT platforms. Bringing transparency and a single holistic view across these environments has proved difficult to date, particularly as over half of departments are using different monitoring tools across different parts of their data infrastructure.
Maintaining cybersecurity in the BYOD era
Insider threats remain one of the largest security vulnerabilities for central government departments, especially in the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) era when employees can more easily access and share sensitive information from a range of secured and unsecured devices. While there is no substitute to comprehensive employee education, sophisticated detection systems including access, event, and log management can help central government IT teams more easily monitor and ensure cybersecurity across the complicated public sector IT estate.
