It is your opportunity to engage with policy makers, hear the latest analysis and forge partnerships with the ICT Community. There are nationally significant speakers, in-depth practical workshop sessions and networking opportunities.
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
Leading Experts: The most prominent speakers from across government lead the day, with their individual perspective giving unique insight. Each speaker is chosen because of the direct influence they have on the agenda, and each is given the opportunity to discuss information that will be unavailable elsewhere.
Focused Discussions: Dedicated sessions split the agenda into component parts, giving delegates the chance to focus in on specific areas. Each session creates a dedicated space to discuss, debate and question, fellow peers and policy makers in the areas that matter most.
Knowledge Gathering: Our events are tailored to provide the business critical information to the agenda, allowing you the chance to take full advantage of all the resources available. Funding information, case studies and exhibitions are all designed to give you everything you need to improve your current position.
A Learning Environment: Taking place at the QEII Conference Centre in Central London, the combination of plenary sessions, break-out seminars, dedicated networking time and various exhibition stands make this the perfect opportunity to discover everything you need to know about up and coming policies and new agendas.
Complete Perspective: By remaining central to the debate, and bringing together all the agencies, sectors and leads involved in the agenda, this event will be a unique opportunity to meet within a targeted and focused delegation of professionals from the public and private sector.
CPD Accreditation: With personal development and up-skilling at the forefront, the delivery of the day is focused enough to provide 8 hours of CPD accreditation for every delegate that attends.
