The Chancellor's spring statement has been described as 'positive' and 'encouraging' but also dismissed as a 'non-event'.
We're seeing a lot of interest in ' digital transformation' projects, however too often we see ' technology led' projects that don't transform business outcomes, they just add a digital layer.
It's crucial that central government departments lead by example and share their digital transformation success stories. Further investment in people and technology is also required to support digital transformation of the public sector. This will help save money in the long run through more efficient processes.
Dave Wells, European vice president and MD of Pegasystems, argues that, despite positive comments regarding the UK’s technology sector, the Chancellor can't afford to rest on his laurels when it comes to the country’s digital transformation.
