This report tracks central government ICT decision maker trends. It is intended both for those currently working with public sector clients, and those considering this market for the first time.
Kable covers the use of ICT in the public sector across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
When we talked to ICT decision makers in 2011 they indicated that their primary focus had remained unchanged from 2009; in the majority respondents were still focused on improving the way in which teams across the organisation communicate and collaborate. In 2013 respondents to the latest survey indicated that they remain committed to this course a level of consistency that is reassuring given the changing market environment and landscape but they are now turning to look at investment into enhancements around the organisations security and aging infrastructure to support the transformational objectives being drive through service redesign.
Decision makers also highlighted a particular focus on replacing or upgrading existing application systems; CIOs now have to consider how best to support legacy assets when in many cases the original provider no longer does and more importantly they have lost the skills internally to do so.
