The must attend event of 2012 and your opportunity to engage with policy makers, hear the latest analysis and forge partnerships with the ICT Community. Nationally significant speakers, in-depth practical workshop sessions and unrivalled networking opportunities combine to make this the only ICT forum you need to attend this year.

In March 2011, the Coalition Government set out a vision for Government ICT at the heart of delivery of efficient, cost-effective public services which are responsive to the needs of citizens and businesses. They identified a series of challenges which ministers, departments, Chief Information Officers, IT professionals and other civil servants faced in using ICT to meet the requirements of a modern state.

On May 24th 2012, the Coalition Government released its report, One Year On: Implementing the Government ICT Strategy. It sets out progress one year into implementing the Government's ICT Strategy. A number of significant successes have been chalked up, including the launch of the Public Service Network frameworks; the launch of the Government Digital Service; and the creation of the CloudStore. The intention is to design and deliver better public services for less cost, work towards the consolidation of ICT assets, improve procurement frameworks and increase the use of shared services.

All the above represents the renewed priority across government to transform public sector ICT. To achieve this, the Government is looking to the development of strong ICT leadership across the public sector in order to deliver:

  • Reductions in waste and project failure
  • A common ICT infrastructure
  • Development of Cloud Computing
  • The use of ICT to deliver changes in service delivery
  • Transformations in procurement through CloudStore
  • Data Centre Consolidation
  • Development of PSN and the role of SMEs in delivering services
  • Standardisation in End User Devices
  • Roll-out of virtualisation and mobile working
  • Re-use and sharing of ICT assets
  • Increase in transparency - Publishing all contracts over £10,000
