I counted them all up the other day: I own no fewer than six smart devices. Like most people my age—I’m 26—I own a smartphone and a tablet, but I also own a smartwatch, a laptop, a PC and a smart TV. I guess that makes me more of a screenager than most. Let’s put it this way: If I had to part with my digital tech for more than an hour I’d probably start having panic attacks.

Why the public sector is embracing public cloud services

The UK’s public sector is on course to embrace the public cloud.
