Smart Solutions Readiness Assessment: 5 weeks: ICT decarbonisation: Assessment


Our Smart Solutions Readiness Assessment extracts the information you need to decarbonise your IT infrastructure, align to your organisation’s ways of working and sustainability strategy.

The UK government has committed to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is encouraging local government and public sector organisations to support delivery against two thirds of the targets. As public sector services impact on both the environmental and social challenges faced by the UK, you have a crucial role in helping to achieve these targets by 2030. To support these goals, you must change behaviours within your organisation, and technology and data solutions are vital in helping you deliver this.

The purpose of the assessment is to understand all the ways Microsoft technology can help you to decarbonise your IT infrastructure, considering people and processes. The output will be a roadmap of recommendations to support your business case and project plans to migrate into Microsoft Azure with Cloud Solutions and drive adoption and change across the organisation, to ensure you maximise your return on investment, reduce energy usage, carbon and costs.

This assessment can be carried out if you have already started to migrate to Azure and want to do more, or are just starting to think about your on premise environment and how you decarbonise it for future.

This programme has been developed to be non-invasive and is compliant with ISO 14001, 9001, and 27001. The assessment covers three key areas, which enable us to develop an action plan and recommend smart IT solutions to meet your organisational and sustainability objectives:

• Creating or reviewing your sustainability vision • Gathering information about your people and processes • Assessing your use of technology and IT infrastructure

Following completion of the assessment, you will receive a documented environmental assessment of your IT Infrastructure, with recommendations, including technology portfolio, working practices and carbon, and economic justification of savings and benefits.
