12:15 Building the connected UK Government
The fourth industrial revolution has resulted in major disruption across the public sector. Today, UK citizens demand seamless and efficient interactions with government as well as access to services wherever and whenever. Such demands call for a truly connected UK Government. If government is to provide such a service to citizens and employees, a new approach is needed. Join us to learn:
- How departments can provide safe and secure access to data across their ecosystem, creating seamless citizen and employee experience
- How a reusable IT infrastructure can increase project delivery by up to 4x
- How the UK Government can increase productivity by up to 250%
This will include a case study of one of our biggest clients.

12:45 A new way of working for the UK Public Sector
Today’s workers are facing a universal challenge – one of alignment.
Creating clarity, cohesion, and in the best cases, an agility which allows for ongoing transformation in the face of ever-changing conditions is what modern organisations are striving for.
In this session you’ll hear how we are creating a fundamental shift in how people approach work and we will share specific examples of how we are helping public sector clients achieve alignment and agility.
Jonathan Marriott, Enterprise Accounts Lead, Slack

14:05 5G – an exploration of what it will enable
Why is 5G so exciting? Quite simply, 5G tears up the rulebook, transforming how technology works, and creating more opportunities than ever before. Hear more about the exciting possibilities for public sector organisations.
Peter Vernon – Head of Networks, North, Vodafone UK
14:35 Public Cloud Adoption – it’s more than just the technology
We have been working with HMPPS (Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service), ESFA (Education and Skills Funding Agency), DfE and DWP leading and delivering on public cloud adoption over the last few years. We want to talk about the real-world challenges departments face from developing new digital services through to migration of critical national IT and creating a sustainable in-house development team and live service capability.
This seminar will focus on our experiences within HMPPS where we have been instrumental in migrating probation services to AWS and running and expanding Prison IT on Azure.
Stephen Strudwick, Head of Technical Architecture, Talent International
15:05 Smart buildings
The two biggest costs facing UK Public Sector organisations are people and buildings. The question from Estates and Facilities is “how can we maximise building efficiency?” The answer is is using technology as the enabler for smarter buildings. A recent response from HPE Aruba to a central government department was “we can get more people into fewer buildings”.
