Capgemini is developing cloud-based services targeted at UK police authorities, the company has revealed. The IT outsourcer’s CIO for the criminal justice ha said that it is “on the verges” of offering a ‘messaging-as-a-service’ option dedicated to police forces, and is exploring opportunities for further cloud-based services.
“We’re working fairly closely with a number of forces to find out exactly what it is they would be interested in putting into a cloud environment ... with all the necessary security accreditation built in,” said Roy Toner, who was previously assistant chief constable for operations with the Police Service of Northern Ireland. Toner said that these so-called “P Cloud” services are likely to be based partly on newly built infrastructure, partly on Capgemini’s current data centre platforms and partly on existing infrastructure owned by the police forces themselves.
