Mobile Working in the Public Sector
The Mobile Working in the Public Sector provides delegates with the opportunity to discuss and examine how a move toward more flexible working in the public sector could help organisations cut costs, while retaining key workers and service.
It will focus on technology’s ability to improve efficiency and enable changes to working practices, and how mobile working can become a broader reality.
This conference allows delegates to examine the newest technological developments to drive mobile working, and gain valuable insights into key strategies for encouraging flexible working. Attendees will share best practices for exploiting new technologies, making savings and increasing efficiency. It will bring key stakeholders together from across the public sector and beyond.

Background Information on Mobile Working in the Public Sector
The Government remains committed to a move towards a reduction in operational costs through the use of collaborative and mobile working technologies.
Against the backdrop of an ever-increasing and improving technological advancement, there is a widely held belief that there will be fewer office buildings, more desk sharing and a higher percentage of flexible workers in three years' time. The transformative power of new technologies needs to be embraced if it is to lead to an improvement in efficiency and delivery.
Transforming services to mobile platforms, opening up access to mobile technologies, enabling smarter and flexible working, and providing service 24-7, are the four central deliverables within the Mobile Government agenda. The adoption of mobile working solutions across all areas of the public sector is a key policy aim for the Government. When implemented successfully, it has the potential to bring huge benefits in both the delivery and access of services, together with significant cost-savings.
One example of helping turn this into a reality is the CloudStore, which was launched in February 2012 and enables the public sector to select and procure apps and cloud-based services on a pay-as-you-go basis. G-Cloud represents a key avenue through which the public sector can procure social and mobile cloud computing to deliver improved efficiency.
New ways of working including mobile and agile accommodation projects can deliver worthwhile efficiencies in productivity and cost. However, significant challenges still exist in terms of technology, security and cultural change and adoption.
Delegates will include members of ICT departments, heads of information and network security, application developers, head of customer services, head of facilities management, network managers, heads of systems development and heads of human resources. They’ll be drawn from local and central government, the health sector, the housing sector, the voluntary sector and the private sector.
