What does UK government need to be digital by default?

Government is looking for ways to improve services and reduce costs without undermining critical services.  For a significant number of these Departments, cloud computing is seen as a key driver to transforming current and future services and to changing the way in which they organise and procure their ICT systems.

When it comes to managing content, cloud provides some significant advantages for remote and mobile workers and allows Government to easily collaborate with Departments and third parties.  

Join us for a lively conversation where we will look to address some of the hype surrounding the cloud and to provide you with practical insights and user experiences.
