Public Spending in a Trust Based Environment – Change is a constant. The end of ISDN. The transformation of Cloud. The re-definition of Trust. Collaboration has never been more important. Drawing on recent experiences, we will explore the key themes impacting public sector spending on technology and network services, and the importance of trust in decision-making.
Building infrastructure to create a digital landscape – working with partners to provide fibre infrastructure creating smart cities and enabling digital transformation.
HSCN: The beginning of a new NHS – Health organisations are already benefiting from HSCN but this is simply the start to thier journey to a connectivity enabled workplace. KCOM are working with organisations to leverage their improved connectivity to simplify their networks and integrate security, voice and cloud services built to enable Digital Transformation.
The rise of Smart Cities and the impact of the future of the public sector digital agenda – With the rise of Smart City strategies and the adoption of online public services, robust connectivity and network security have never been so important.
Digital Transformation in the Public Sector: Leadership vs Action – Since the early 2000s, everything has been about digital: preparing, transforming and continual improvement. This has resulted in a lot of planning but to date it is very few organisations who could claim to be fully digital. This talk will explore where we are now and where we want to be exploring the relationship between digital leadership vs digital action: the impact of transformation on Public Sector networks, the strategy Public Sector organisations own and the action that needs to take place to produce the tangible outcomes that every organisation wants.
Cloud deployment models for the public sector connectivity – A case study led presentation highlighting a range of network and cloud implementations for the emergency services, central government and local government.
