Looking at moving from “what to how”. £460m is the minimum amount of savings that central government is working to deliver, which equates to an approximate 7% in-year saving in 2014/15.

Wider government ICT plans being made
Government is steadfast on reducing waste and delivering modern public services at lower cost. Public Sector Enterprise ICT 2013 conference will not only look at delivering the Strategic Implementation Plan but also be a major platform for the discussion of the G-Cloud Store as part of the wider Government Cloud Programme. The focus of this event will be the drive to deliver around 1.4bn of savings within the next 4 years and help deliver better public services digitally.
Information technology, ICT, has undergone economic and sustainable changes due to cloud computing. The government is committed to adopting and delivering cloud computing resources. The G- cloud is an ongoing programme of work which will deliver significant changes in the way the public sector secures and operates ICT.
The G-Cloud strategy outlines in more detail how the government will:
- Achieve large, cross government economies of scale;
- Deliver ICT systems that are flexible and responsive to demand in order to support government policies and strategies;
- Take advantage of new technologies in order to deliver faster business benefits and reduce cost;
- Meet environmental and sustainability targets;
- Allow government to procure in a way that encourages a dynamic and responsive supplier marketplace and supports emerging suppliers.
