Influence of IT managers increasing as local public services turn to technology to bring service delivery costs down 

 

A recent report, commissioned on behalf of Socitm states, "IT management appears to be wielding greater influence in local public services as local authorities and others turn to technology to help them cope with dramatically reduced budgets." 

 
Furthermore, the following key findings were revealed: 

 

  • Spending on contracted services (including service sharing) increases
  • Organisations begin to allow employees to use own devices at work
  • IT staff numbers down by 5,000 - largest reduction in 25 years

Are you looking to adopt or shape a strategy to incorporate Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or look at sharing services across your local authority? Why not let us help?
