Exempt Part B - By Virtue of Paragraph 3
Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information)
That the Cabinet
a) approves Option 3 - the migration of IT infrastructure to a public cloud-based approach as set business case (set out in Appendix A of report DAT/03).
b) requests that the revenue and capital implications be included within the Budget and Council Tax 2021-22 report going to Cabinet in February 2021.
c) delegates authority to the Head of Digital and Transformation to mobilise a project and sign the necessary contracts to move the IT Infrastructure to the public cloud, including regular update briefings to the Cabinet and Shadow Members with responsibility for IT.
(Generic Delegations 3 and 7 will be used to enact this recommendation).
Reasons for the Recommendations
The operational, financial and technical benefits that public cloud adoption would provide the Council, far outweighs retaining the status quo of a “do nothing” alternative.
