Intelligent Customer Function for the Cloud

A key challenge when undergoing a Service Transformation is constructing the organisation of skills and capabilities that can govern the service through the design, delivery and ongoing business operational phases.  Not having these skills can be a major risk to project failure, and by its nature, a transformation project generally means an upheaval of the status quo, embracing new business models, new technologies and new supplier models.  It is therefore not surprising that the organisation can often have a skills and knowledge deficit, which soon becomes an Achilles heel.  Modern trends in Government IT delivery encourage the general insourcing of disaggregated Service functions, to support Digital driven transformation, procuring Cloud services from smaller fragmented suppliers.  Increasingly, the Public Sector finds they need to quickly adapt an Intelligent Client Function to enable them to govern the service(s), and ensure they meet the objective of the business.
