Local
Government.

Working with you to
improve local government
ICT for your community.

As a local authority, you need to improve resident services, while spending cuts mean you also have to save money. You’re expected to be a connected council of the future. Channel shift may mean your residents can carry out transactions online but the challenge is how to make your services smoother and easier to access, more personalised and user-responsive. To help realise significant cost savings you also need to fully digitise your back offices and transform how you work internally, commission services, diagnose and solve problems, use public space, and attract talent.

Deploying new digital technologies hosted in the cloud will help you better respond to these challenges. Cloud environments provide greater scalability and business continuity capabilities, along with greater flexibility and capacity. Innovative applications can be developed and hosted that can improve resident services as well as help you implement more efficient processes and ways of working behind the scenes.

You can also use cloud environments to implement common platforms and so facilitate data sharing across departments, agencies, authorities and organisations in order to improve services. If you’re an English authority, this data sharing capability will be key to helping you fulfil your responsibilities related to the Care Act. If you’re responsible for sensitive data related to those you serve you need to confident that data is secure.
