Lewisham Services move to the cloud
Love them clean streets, baby
Video The streets of Lewisham, and beyond, are a whole lot cleaner thanks to the quick thinking of Nigel Tyrell, who’s head of Environment for Lewisham.
Back in 2004 the council had the idea of giving residents the ability to post images from a mobile device onto a website – so it knew where the problems were and could respond effectively.
More recently, Lewisham decided to put the service in an Azure cloud, giving them flexibility and the chance to share it with others, which has happened to good effect.
It’s part of the London Love Clean Streets initiative. And you can find out how and why they did it, and what the outcome was by watching this lovely video case study below. The Register’s Tim Phillips talks to Nigel all about it below. You might find it somewhat inspiring.
