Cloud, Procurement and Utility Computing in the Public Sector
Within the context of the tightest Spending Review in recent history, do new technologies such as Cloud hold out the hope of low cost 'utility' computing? And does the reality of such technology make cost saving shared services not only desirable but easily attainable? The panel discusses the pros and cons of these technologies and the benefits they could bring to all parts of the public sector - and how the public sector procurement model needs to change for technology to deliver promised benefits.
On the panel:
- Mark O'Neill, CIO, Department for Communities & Local Government/Department of Media, Culture and Sport
- Liam Maxwell, IT specialist and Conservative Councillor at the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (Lead author on Conservative think tank paper: Better for Less)
- Alan Banks, MD Adobe UK
- Helen Olsen, Managing Editor, Informed Publications
