CREATING EFFECTIVE AGILE GOVERNANCE FOR DIGITAL SERVICE DELIVERY

dsdm-logo-2015

The digital by default service standard guides delivery teams to create good, user-centered digital services and entreats them to work in an Agile, collaborative, iterative manner. Traditional approaches to governance are often at odds with this.

This workshop will examine some of the work that has already been done to resolve this tension and will explore some of the issues that you are experiencing, whether that be as part of a delivery team or in a governance role.

This is an opportunity for you to share your views and an invitation to become part of a community, facilitated by the DSDM consortium, to help shape an Agile governance approach based on your real world needs.

OVERCOMING THE CHALLENGES AND REALISING THE BENEFITS OF MOVING TO THE CLOUD

Agilisys

A majority of public sector organisations have declared their intent to migrate to the cloud. Research indicates a significant proportion are not making the desired progress and are struggling to overcome a number of key challenges. We explore the challenges and help to explain how these challenges are being overcome.

Agilisys will explain the typical challenges including; how to make the business case stack up, how to transform, dealing with the legacy challenge and how to make intelligent selection decisions on partnering

We discuss our experience, our platforms and lessons learnt in migrating over 50 local authorities into the cloud, either for single applications or entire infrastructures, in order to achieve the best outcomes for the public sector organisation and the services they provide to citizens.

Learning Points

  • Key foundations to have in place before migration to the cloud
  • Transformation vs lift and shift into the cloud
  • Data types and workloads – choosing the right cloud platform
  • Support models and ongoing cost control

THE ADVANTAGES OF HIGHLY AUTOMATED CLOUDS

Carrenza-1

The Carrenza team will also hold host to an hour seminar which aims to be an interactive discussion on ‘The advantages of highly automated clouds’.

Taking advantage of cloud computing for development purposes, and the running of production systems has become a de facto approach for most organisations, government sector departments and small businesses alike. Being able to manage this in a fully automated and secure manner however can still prove challenging, and even more so now that many are working and managing a multi-cloud environment spanning across a number of different providers. Join us to explore our findings having worked with many public sector organisations and enterprises alike.

Learning points;

  • The benefits of cloud Automation & Dev-Ops and what it looks like
  • How to manage a Multi-Cloud infrastructure
  • Using opensource tools for application delivery
  • Compliant as standard

THE CHANGING APPLICATION LANDSCAPE

Citrix_exhibitor

Securely delivering applications from multiple suppliers and locations is a difficult undertaking but one which is increasingly essential. In the future, this will be core to how organisations deliver IT services to their workforce and to their customers. The impact of IaaS and SaaS within enterprises is changing the application landscape, resulting in a need to harmonise disparate sets of application and so maintain an intuitive user experience. Having tools to aggregate applications and allow them to be accessed and presented from a central point, simplifies end user experiences whilst providing IT support teams with the flexibility to adjust service provision when necessary.

Learning Points;

  • Creating a consistent access mechanism to guarantee user adoption, ease of use and satisfaction
  • Learn how to provide an intuitive user experience by delivering applications from a central point, regardless of the source (cloud, SaaS, on-premises), without compromising security.
  • Securing applications and the data they rely on, both critical for workforce productivity
  • Supporting IT service delivery with IT analytics and visibility
  • Showcasing identity management and single sign-on, a growing requirement in this new world
  • Reducing the risk of change with flexibility to swap-out applications without impacting endpoint devices

Speaker:

Stuart Jennings, Office of the CTO, Citrix

WHY EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE THE FOCUS FOR DIGITAL GOVERNMENT

Adobe_exhibitor

The evolution of digital government has so far been largely focused on moving paper and functional processes online. The next evolution will focus on experience, which will drive the types of outcomes that government needs to achieve: delivering more for less, connecting with hard-to-reach people, increasing satisfaction and driving internal productivity.

This session will look at:

  • The challenges the public sector must overcome to become truly transformational – acknowledging and responding to rising citizen expectations, harnessing the power of the data to improve service delivery and keeping pace with digital disruption.
  • Focusing on ‘experience’ as a key way to bring effective digital transformation and why it matters in public service delivery.
  • Practical examples from the Canadian Government to bring this concept to life.

Peter Cummings, Director, Public Sector EMEA, Adobe
