Digital government in Britain is at a crucial juncture. A lot has been achieved, and a lot has changed, since the Government Digital Service was created back in April 2011 – some six years ago.
Whilst government departments now have a better understanding of user need, and ways of working have changed for the better in many areas, with modern digital systems being deployed, questions remain about to what extent this change has been embedded.
However, the biggest item on the agenda in Whitehall at the moment, and across the public sector, is Brexit. The result of the EU referendum in June last year changed everything, and all eyes (and resources) are on making the exit from the European Union go as smoothly as possible.
Digital is going to play a big part in this process – from untangling current systems, to creating new ones. Policy and digital execution should go hand in hand to create a new independent digital state. But will that be the case? What are the implications for the Transformation Strategy? How should resources be allocated? What will the impact be on cloud adoption and data strategies? How can trade for digital business be protected? And what can Whitehall do to attract digital skills from abroad at this time?
