Public sector austerity could transform local authority intranets, says Socitm

Digital by Default - With the UK public sector set for further austerity measures, Socitm is predicting that it could provide an opportunity for the development of local authority intranets.

According to its latest briefing ‘Better connected intranets’, senior management in the public sector may begin to use their council intranet for the first time with service and financial cuts, and be disappointed with the facilities available.

Socitm is forecasting that this may incentivise local authorities to invest in their intranet systems; the briefing suggests that the systems can be brought up to speed quickly by sharing best practices amongst authorities.
