MORNING REFRESHMENTS & NETWORKING

Practical Cloud: Part One

Government leaders are now expected to find ways to adopt technological innovations to enhance service delivery and increase citizen and business satisfaction against a backdrop of reducing costs, deficits and debt.  A sound strategy from the outset will enable any government agency to have a cloud based offering as a value added part of its organisations framework.  But how has this worked in reality?

Our buyer-led Practical Cloud case studies are designed to highlight best practices, the lessons learned from successful projects and how to leverage the benefits of cloud and digital technology in the public sector.

AFTERNOON REFRESHMENTS & NETWORKING

And now for Question Time…

Throughout the day you’ve heard from the great and the good in public sector cloud. You have been told about the future plans for the Digital Marketplace and G-Cloud frameworks; you’ve seen practical examples of how government agencies have used digital and cloud technology to improve their efficiencies and their offerings and you will now have a clear picture of the growing opportunities each of the procurement frameworks provided by the government offer to you as a public sector executive.

This final session now provides you with the opportunity to ask some important questions of our diverse panel of industry leaders and sector figureheads. What do you need to know to enable the creation of a more successful digital government?

Take this chance to ask the questions that matter to you and your teams.

  • Do you fully understand Agile technology opportunities?
  • What are the strategies for encouraging new technology adoption?
  • How can you overcome resistance to change?
  • With so many concerns and issues around data privacy, how up to speed are you?
  • Outsourcing – RIP?
  • Do you understand how Digital by Default works in practice?
  • Private, Public or Hybrid Cloud, which is best for you?
