AWS in the Irish Public Sector

Delivering secure innovation at scale

The way public services are being delivered around the world is rapidly changing. Government, healthcare, and education institutions use Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer better outcomes for the people they serve through digital transformation, and Ireland is no different.

Irish people are digitally connected and tech-savvy, with the country’s role as a global technology hub fueling the appetite for innovation. To meet citizens’ expectations, the Irish public sector is moving to the cloud. And, with world-class cloud infrastructure built at home in Ireland, AWS is well positioned to help—delivering secure, scalable, innovative technology while supporting sustainability and cost- savings.
