Staying Ahead Of The Game – What Next For IT And Digital Services In Government?

Everybody is talking about moving to the cloud. Many organisations are doing it. But, when we are all busy implementing technology change and digital transformation, how do we maintain a leading edge? This address will set out what one major department is doing to develop future talent and capability and how it has put in place a delivery model that provides user-centric services.

A Framework for Digital Change

This session will explore:

  • What are councils doing to embrace the digital opportunity?
  • 5 elements to drive digital change
  • Examples in practice

Chair’s Afternoon Address

David Bicknell, Editor, Government Computing

Governance in an Agile World – the NHS Digital Transformation

Exploring the significant changes in the culture, controls and supporting artefacts necessary to provide the assurances needed by organisations working in the Public Sector.

How We’re Achieving Digital By Default

Expectations are higher than ever, and continue to grow. Residents expect local government to keep up with digital service offered in the private sector. This presentation explores the challenges that we all face in the current digital age and how one council is trying to overcome them:

  • Keeping up with expectations and demand
  • In-house versus 3rd party
  • Digital skill sets
  • Adopting agile in a public sector environment
  • Assisted self-service and the future
Agility Is Key To Transforming The Delivery Of ICT Services

We all know that ICT transformations can be delivered more effectively, efficiently and cheaply using Agile approaches. But how can the delivery of services be achieved in a small, dynamic, multi-faceted financial services environment reliant on multiple external partnerships? This presentation will discuss the approaches needed for delivering successful strategic and operationally-effective services to rapidly meet both the regulatory and changing needs of the public sector.

How Digital Services Are Driving Citizen-Centred Care

In the 21st century the ‘modern consumer’ expects to be in control. To order what they want, when they want it, from any device, to consume content when they choose, to feedback directly and with an immediate response. So how can the 20th century institutions of our health and care system operate in such an environment? Will services designed as digital by default disenfranchise those on the wrong side of the digital divide? How are digital services enabling our health and care professionals to work together in ways that are focussed around the individual citizen rather than the NHS Trust or Council? In this talk we look at how health and care providers are embracing digital technology and skills and what this means for the individual and the services that they receive.

A Holistic Approach to Security

Far from being tranquil ivory towers, universities are very much in the front line for cyber security due to their open environments and the wide range of threats and conflicting stakeholder interests.
