Government Computing – a public sector world of opportunity

Welcome to Government Computing, the essential online 24×7 resource, for those who need to know what’s new in public sector ICT.

Information management in the public sector is arguably at its most innovative when more must be done with less.

From the rise of the service towers model, the concept of ‘open data’ in central government and the ambitious Agile development of new Universal Credit systems for 2013, the adoption of shared services between councils in local government, the development of PSN, which provides a single network and marketplace for public sector communications, bringing suppliers and customers together to substantially reduce costs, a post-National Programme for IT (NPfIT) world in health, and continual cost drivers for outsourcing among police forces, information management in the public sector is in continual flux.

Government Computing, part of GlobalData PLC, brings together the latest news, analysis and comment on information management in the public sector, putting Whitehall’s deliberations into context, and tracking and detailing the thinking of key ICT decision-makers within local authorities and NHS trusts.

In a complex and ever-changing ICT world, Government Computing brings much-needed clarity and authority through high quality writing by specialists with a track record of covering information management in the public sector.
