The public sector in Europe is facing a daunting task. As operate in an increasingly complex environment and are required to deliver on an expanded set of objectives and policy reforms the expectations of what they ought to deliver are rising, while their budgets to do so are not. In facts civil service spending cuts are severely challenging for governmental operations. On top of that governmental bodies need to be more open and transparent in their operation, as public trust in government in eroding.
How is the public sector able to wrestle this 800-pound gorilla? Circle B is able to help governments to benefit from the benefits that implementing open infrastructure has to offer. While today many governmental bodies operate in a decentralized way, owning their own it infrastructures and operation they spend large amounts of capital resources on maintaining and securing that environment. With Open Infrastructure governments are able to create a shared infrastructure service as a utility. Open Infrastructure at scale will be able to lower costs of infrastructure hardware as standardized open components are procured at scale, with true multi sourcing capabilities without compromise.
Many governmental organizations in Europe collaborate and work in coordinated fashion. Shared Service Centers are created – yet often the benefits and possibilities that common open infrastructure can provide are not looked into, while significantly lower cost (especially on the operational side) can be achieved, subsequently ticking boxes of objectives that need to be met (i.e. reducing your carbon footprint).
