This strategy, along with its supporting documents, provides the environment and approaches to change the government information technology (IT) landscape radically to create a more productive, flexible workforce that delivers digital public services in a much more cost-effective way.

Government will have access to the right tools. Consumer end user devices, delivered to a clear standard that meets government needs, will maximise the productivity of the public sector workforce. This will increase the efficiency of departments and improve front-line services.

Our aim is that, as much as possible, the public sector workforce will be able to work from any location on any suitable government or non-government end user device.

This strategy will deliver significant savings across government and is a key enabler for releasing further savings through other Information and Communication Technology (ICT) strands, for example Application Store for Government and G-Cloud.
