The cloud can deliver amazing cost savings with negligible impact on user experience. The challenge for Queensland Treasury (QT) was that their mission critical operations provided the financial services that fuelled Queensland Government operations. To minimise the risk of failure in service delivery, change management is tightly controlled and plans are reviewed and vetted to mitigate the possibility of service outages. MOQdigital won a tender to independently analyse service utilisation and develop a detailed plan outlining how “The Cloud” could deliver measurable economies and reduce the workload required to manage QT’s complex IT environment. The projected improvements will cut operating budgets significantly and mark the beginning of a migration away from self-managed to almost complete operation in the cloud.
