Highlights from Government Computing 2015

2015 saw delegates gather from across the UK to explore the latest technological advances being utilised in the public sector. With a focus on scalable, proven process and technology, the event featured presentations from some of the leading policy makers and practitioners from across local and central government and gave attendees the opportunity to discover new innovations ways of working which have brought about improvements in the design and delivery of public services.

Highlights included:

Tony Singleton, Director, G-Cloud and Digital Commercial Programme, Government Digital Service, Cabinet Office kicked off the event with a rallying call to the entire public sector to push the digital agenda. Tony spoke about the future plans the GDS has for the future of government computing and gave an update on the flagship Digital Marketplace.

Richard Godfrey, CIO, Peterborough City Council delivered a dynamic workshop on digital transformation. Touching on the need for greater collaboration and workforce engagement, Richard shared his experience of transforming the city’s public services and rebuilding them around the concept of automation and efficiency.

Our industry research has consistently showed that it’s not a lack of technology which is holding back development but the huge organisational changes it demands. The event included a debate featuring Socitm, NHS England, the CPS, the London Borough of Newham and Fordway discussing how partnership working can be encouraged throughout the public sector. Attendees learnt about some of the success stories and how to overcome the challenges the sector still faces.
