Collaboration and Pragmatism:
The UK Government’s cloud computing initiative will reduce cost and boost efficiency, but the public sector and its service partners must work hand-in-hand for it to succeed
Taking the Sting out of Public Sector Cuts
Fujitsu’s Mark Nicholls and Andy Fuller say government departments and local authorities can save billions lost through fraud and error if they adopt an innovative approach to detection already being pioneered by one large public sector organisation. The system and related processes can be implemented quickly and at zero upfront cost, while at the same time improving both the speed of service for claimants and the morale of claims processing staff. With government departments needing to do more for less, this an opportunity that mustn't be squandered.
Making Mobile Solutions
David Rosewell and Craig Merrick of Fujitsu argue that public sector organisations that equip their workforces with powerful mobile solutions can reap multiple benefits, in particular: maintaining front-line services in the face of budget cuts, boosting efficiency, and cutting costs. However, doing this requires careful planning and business change management.
Share and share alike
Motivated by a need to drive efficiencies and reduce costs, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire County Councils in the UK have taken the lead when it comes to reaping the rewards of shared services.
Public Sector organisations can cut out much of the costs and leg-work associated with ICT procurement by using Frameworks with Fujitsu.
The Desktop21 framework enables customers to select according to their needs, from pre-procured, desktop service modules based on pre-approved, best-in-class offerings. Fujitsu is one of only three preferred suppliers of Desktop21 to the public sector, as selected by Buying Solutions.
Flex is unique in the public sector. It is the only functional government approved cross-departmental Restricted and Confidential shared service framework. The solution gives all public sector organisations access to leading IT infrastructure and services at a significantly reduced cost. According to the Cabinet Office, Flex “has reset the price of desktop services for the ICT Industry”.
The UK public sector has an opportunity to offset the worst effects of budget cuts by tackling billions of pounds of fraud and error with proven, yet still innovative approaches. Fujitsu has considerable expertise in reducing the impact of fraud and error in central and local government.
By using its workforce and its technology in completely new ways, Fujitsu believes that a transformed police service can be created, improving citizen confidence and saving money at the same time.
