The UK government is committed to encouraging public sector organisations to utilise technology to improve efficiency, drive down cost and transform services so they are simpler, faster and clearer. Responsive public services are critical to improving people’s quality of life and enhancing their opportunities. With the aim of making the UK a world leader in its use of technology and ensuring services are more convenient and accessible, public sector bodies are leading on a programme of profound business change to unlock savings and achieve operational efficiencies through the transformative effect of ICT.
Every year, the UK public sector spends millions on its ICT infrastructure. Despite significant efficiency savings, the public sector still needs to do more to streamline processes, deliver better business outcomes, break down siloes and foster stronger links between ICT departments and strategic organisation objectives. While the government has delivered on reducing waste, further tangible returns will be contingent on sustained, cross-government efforts to deliver better services for less.
Join us at Whitehall Media’s prestigious 8th annual Public Sector Enterprise ICT conference where we discuss the latest technology innovations, showcase thought leadership around emerging trends and practices, and consider how ICT is a key enabler for public sector transformation allowing for greater cost savings, efficiencies and agility.
