Ever reviewed a cloud computing contract, only to be left wondering why it’s fundamentally different to anything you’ve come across before? The simple answer to your question is hyper-scale cloud economics. In this session, Amazon Web Services explains why ‘one-to-many’ computing is the great leveller regardless of size and how, during this golden-age of innovation, Public Sector organisations are using it to modernise. We’ll explore the importance of shared responsibility with regards data security and reveal five essential tips for a streamlined procurement.

15:30 NHS Digital – how the creation of HSCN is enabling the digital transformation of Health and Social Care: driving cost optimisation and creating new markets in the NHS
The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) programme is providing the successor to the National NHS Network (N3) and is a key transitional stage in achieving the vision of making digital Health and Social Care services ubiquitously available over the Internet. In providing both public and private connectivity over a single connection it will: support organisations and services transition to Internet and cloud based architectures; provide highly performant access to the critical digital services upon which Health and Social Care rely and which are not currently available on the Internet; and help organisations protect themselves against network related cybersecurity threats.
By establishing a small number of central services and a standards-based competitive marketplace of connectivity suppliers it will provide greater flexibility and security and generate significant cost savings.
Market evolution and central Government policy are coalescing to the point that large scale monolithic technology contracts are no longer necessary to recover investment in bespoke technical architectures nor are they desirable in terms of value for money.
Cloud based technologies are now prevalent in the IT space and are having an effect on the delivery of services lower down the ‘stack’. Software defined networking and wider availability of physical infrastructure suppliers is making it easier for new entrants to succeed in the telecoms market.
The development of a standards based delivery model for HSCN has enabled these new entrants, along with the more traditional players, to compete in a common marketplace for HSCN connectivity, providing consumers with greater flexibility and improved value for money.
Andrew Wilson, Associate Director Commercial Engagement, NHS Digital
Patrick Clark, Head of HSCN Implementation and Communication, NHS Digital
Helen Thurston, Category Lead Networks, Crown Commercial Service
Ieuan Trigger, Director of Network/Telecommunication Strategy and Procurement, Crown Commercial Service
