Demystifying Local Gov: Growing the Local GovTech Market

Join us for our latest event in the growing the local GovTech market series. It is an exciting time for local government transformation, more and more councils are realising the benefit digital can play in helping to not only drive efficiencies but solve problems and create places where citizens want to live, work and thrive. Collectively, local government spends around £2 billion per annum on IT, with £1 billion of this spent on sourcing and supporting software applications. However, the local government market can be perceived as complex and hard to navigate. While this is true, local government is unique in the number of lines of business it operates - from zoo licenses to local planning to waste collection – meaning technology can make a real difference to how services are delivered and ultimately improve the lives of citizens.

This event will provide active and new entrants to the local government market the opportunity to develop a better understanding of how local government works and procures technology. The event will also explore the latest trends and models local government are looking at – from adopting a place based approach to greater collaboration across boundaries – as well as the key challenges they are facing and where the opportunities for technology to help solve problems.
