In this video, Paul Christie, Head of IT Service for Registers of Scotland, describes their business case for adopting the Cloud.

The fundamental reason is to underpin their existing strategies which support their corporate plan. Strategies such as the sustainability strategy, the service acceleration strategy, the data strategy and generally all of the things they want to do around building a smart and digital workplace.

Cloud will enable and empower many of those strategies. It will allow the engineers and developers, and their product colleagues to focus on what the more value added elements of building these digital services for RoS colleagues and for RoS customers. And it will do so in a way that is much more secure and much more resilient than they could ever possibly do ourselves on premise.

Everything that they are doing on the Cloud is looking to reduce the overall cost of ownership of their digital products going forward through leveraging the economies of scale that Cloud offers and the density efficiencies that it offers.

In terms of this longer term strategy they’re looking to build or utilize Cloud in a way that is truly going to empower the organization to be very agile in the digital arena, and in a way that is much more cost effective for the organization.
