Event Details

Open government: driving greater openness, transparency and citizen engagement

The public sector continues to face significant challenges to transform services and to improve efficiency and productivity against a backdrop of economic pressures.  The time is right for government to take a fresh approach to its ICT strategy and to rigorously evaluate the use of open source solutions to deliver great savings without detracting from the quality of public services.

Join us for a lively conversation and investigation into how open source and technology can support greater transparency and engagement.

  • How can interoperability support government missions and bring greater efficiency to individual departments?
  • How can streamlining the flow of information ensure better delivery of government services?
  • Will rapid deployment and new implementation techniques bring greater agility to government agencies?
  • Can collaboration technologies provide civil servants with the tools they need to work with colleagues, other government agencies, contractors and citizens?
  • In an era of fiscal restraint, is it possible to do more on a smaller IT budget?
