IT operational efficiency is a business imperative. Optimizing the IT infrastructure improves operational efficiency by reducing costs, improving agility, and maximizing performance. The transition to the Public Services Network, which forms an integral part of the coalition government’s ICT strategy, is already well underway. The government has calculated that by 2014, Britain’s public sector could be saving £130 million or more each year through both reform and efficiency savings. Although only one year into this programme of reform, the implementation of the strategy has already resulted in the awarding of the first public service connectivity framework agreements to 12 enterprises , offered more opportunities for SMEs, particularly on the G Cloud framework, produced savings of £159.6 million on ICT contracts during financial year 2011-12, brought about dramatic improvements in the speed and ease of ICT procurement, reduced the size and complexity of ICT projects, and succeeded in making Government ICT more open and accountable to the people and organisations that use public services.
Public Sector2012 is a business strategy conference that will address all of these issues. It will be attended by key Public Sector decision-makers across the UK, and will focus on the practical aspects of the effective delivery of the government’s ICT strategy and the Strategic Implementation Plan. It will also discuss the technology and business aspects of maximising efficiency and achieving Value for Money. It will reach out to embrace the Efficiency and Reform agenda in the context of delivering best practice in ICT. The event, which will be held at the Hotel Russell, London, on the 8 November, 2012, promises to be the most powerful strategic government ICT event of 2012 and will gather together some of the UK’s pre-eminent speakers who influence and determine policy for the most influential sector of the Government. Key speakers will include high level public servants and specialists from the Public Sector arena.

Dedicated to sharing best practice and innovation in Business and IT across Local Authorities, NHS Trust, Central Government, Defence, Justice and Education – Public Sector Enterprise ICT 2012 With up to 500 delegates attending, Enterprise ICT 2012 is the must attend conference of the Government Calendar.
