Six Degrees acts as a cloud enabler, helping housing associations carry out their digital transition journeys in a structured manner that minimises risk.

When we engage with housing associations throughout the UK, we often hear a similar story: they know they want to transition to a multi-cloud IT environment that will help them improve tenant services, but they don’t have the finances or the risk appetite to take the plunge.

This dilemma may well have a familiar ring to it. The multi-cloud discussion has moved from ‘if’ to ‘when’, and there is increasing pressure on housing associations to deliver better tenant services that could be empowered by today’s multi-cloud infrastructures.

But without significant budgets to play with, and given the potential consequences of a failed ‘big bang’ cloud transition for IT Managers and departments, let alone the tenants they work to support, many housing associations find themselves suffering from cloud paralysis.

Is there a way out of this catch-22?

Springboard to the Cloud Whitepaper

Partner With a Cloud Enabler

At Six Degrees we are working with a number of housing associations to help them kick-start their digital transitions. We have the experience, depth of resource, capabilities and presence to help housing associations out of their cloud paralysis, empowering them to take progressive decisions that set them on the right path towards the cloud.

As an example of the issues that face housing associations, Six Degrees recently worked on a tender in which a housing association was running legacy workloads that couldn’t be hosted on public cloud services. These workloads supported mission-critical applications that allowed the housing association to deliver effective services to tenants. Six Degrees put forward an interim cloud solution that would allow the housing association to improve the uptime, security and performance of the workloads by hosting on a compatible cloud hosting platform.

Our experienced teams have deep sector-specific knowledge that allows them to provide expert advisory and professional services. We help our clients achieve a springboard to the cloud, taking gradual steps to future-proof their environments whilst introducing functionality that can have a significant effect on the way they deliver tenant services.
