ICT strategy resources

This collection brings together all documents relating to the government's ICT strategy and related resources.

The government’s ICT Strategy and Strategic Implementation Plan will deliver better public services for less cost. Through reusing and sharing our ICT assets, we will improve productivity and efficiency, and reduce waste and the likelihood of project failure.

This in turn will improve and open up public service delivery by supporting online transactional services for citizens and businesses, and create channels for collaboration and policy debate.

On 27 October 2011, the government published 4 strategies covering G-cloud, end user devices, ICT capability and greening government ICT. These provide the environment and approaches to radically transform the ICT landscape to create a more productive, flexible workforce that delivers digital public services in a much more cost effective way.

Developing reference architecture underpins the aims of the ICT Strategy. This will enable delivering interoperable and open ICT solutions so that they can be shared and reused, by providing common language, terms and descriptions which will allow opportunities to identify common areas of business, data, application and technologies.
