UKA Live: Managing complexity in a pandemic

Thursday 09 July 2020


How did the public sector respond to the challenge?

Join UKAuthority Live on 9th July (11:00 to 12:00) for our expert panel debate

After a decade of austerity the public sector's journey towards cloud is ongoing. Technology estates, which have often evolved over decades as technology advances, are often complex - with multiple legacy systems and at different stages of planned digital transformation.

When the Covid pandemic hit, how did the public sector respond to the challenge of enabling socially distanced or home working?

Just how do you manage the complexity that is public sector services and technology in a pandemic?

On the panel: 

  • Kurt Frary, deputy director of information management & technology, Norfolk County Council and chair of Socitm East
  • Amit Patel, director of technology design & engineering, British Heart Foundation
  • Owen Powell, ICT director, Central and North West London (CNWL) NHS Trust
  • Rhys Sharp, public sector solutions director, Rackspace
