Government ICT Conference 2017: Delivering accessible digital services
“We are recasting the relationship between the citizen and the state – all with the goal of making people’s lives better.” – Matt Hancock MP, Digital Minister
Speaking in December 2016, Government Digital Service (GDS) director general Kevin Cunnington marked the organisation’s five year anniversary by reemphasising its commitment to “building and supporting services that put the user first”. By creating a common digital infrastructure for the public sector, the Government hopes to remove inconsistencies, end the costly duplication of work and avoid the high profile failure of major IT projects. This joined-up approach will allow different departments to pool resources, exchange data and deliver a more user-centric service. Initiatives including G-Cloud and the Digital Marketplace have streamlined the way that Government procures IT services from the private sector, reducing the time it takes to deliver major projects and opening up public sector contracts to more small and medium sized businesses. But while the Government’s “digital by default agenda” has improved efficiency, it also presents a potential risk. The National Audit Office has warned of shortcomings in public sector IT security and called for a national strategy to combat the threat of cybercrime.
Join us for the Government ICT Conference 2017 where industry experts will discuss the major changes and developments that will shape the future digital infrastructure of the public sector. Understand the challenges and opportunities posed by big data, how a common digital platform can increase efficiencies and how more user-centric digital services will improve the relationship between citizen and state.
