Public sector leaders now face the significant challenge of delivering against government’s transformational IT agenda, whilst also working within the tight constraints of current austerity measures. The very substantial reduction in public sector resources is not matched by reducing public expectations. To date most of the public sector savings have been achieved through workforce reductions, but losing people only offers limited potential for cost savings before the quality of services is badly affected.
Q Associates aims to work with our clients in the public sector, fully recognising the challenge posed by the current funding climate. We typically work within budget to deliver transformation projects, replacing expensive legacy systems with highly efficient, cost effective IT infrastructure.
We have created an informative paper that addresses the problems associated with the budget gap currently experienced by public sector IT departments at the mid-point of the austerity agenda.
The paper considers how these challenges may be solved whilst acknowledging the organisational constraints that IT departments are working within, which include addressing: The skills gap, the data gap and the technology gap.
