This White Paper outlines how far the UK public sector has progressed on the path to cloud adoption and the challenges that it will face along the way. We acknowledge that in this research we do not distinguish between the different segments within the public sector, such as health, education and central and local government. Our intention is to commission further research to help us to better understand the specific issues and differences within these segments.

How that liability is effectively allocated and how it impacts sub-contractors in the supply chain is also an issue.
