To sustain the fast-paced and dynamic growth in the region, it will need its schools, academic institutions, and existing work force to develop relevant digital skills.
A combination of hard pressed budgets and the quest to transform services has meant that the drive towards digital service delivery has become faster than ever. ShareDigital brings together those involved in enabling digital public services to link-up with their peers, learn from one another's experiences and discuss the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. And for innovative technology companies, such as Arcus Global, already successfully working with public sector clients, ShareDigital provides a platform to showcase how they can help to deliver better services, digitally and more cost-effectively. The opportunity now is to replicate successful digital projects, across the public sector.
This is the Local Government Event of the Year. The LGA’s 2016 annual conference and exhibition. Attracting over 1,300 delegates, 130 speakers and 120 exhibitors, this is a must-attend event for council leaders and chief executives as well as senior representatives from the private, voluntary and community sectors.
The Conference will investigate the various approaches to raising standards in products and consumer care in business. Under a government that wants to keep cutting the red tape, which methods ensure that businesses, large and small, retain and grow the confidence of consumers? What will have the greatest impact on improving the standards of service, safety, quality and pricing?
Join Arcus at the Better Connected Live 2016
The re-invention of local public services
This new two-day event brings together public service leaders at all levels, inspiring them to seize the linked opportunities of digital and devolution to redesign services and support for local communities. Arcus Global and Terraquest will be supporting the Digital Delivery of Frontline Services: Planning session at the event. The speakers include Planning Portal, a Local Authority Planning service and Better Connected's Vicky Sargent and Helen Williams.
Welcome to the first salon to be held in the East of England region.
Everyone knows that the best businesses understand their customers and use this insight to drive their decisions on products and services. The same principle is often applied to digital services. If we build up a complete picture of the customer and their relationship with us, it will be easier for them to do business with us and be kept up to date – often via a ‘My Account’. As a business we will understand and be better able to meet their needs and wants.
But what does this mean for privacy? Should a local council need your date of birth to report a porthole? Or does an insurer need access to my Facebook profile to issue a policy for my car? Should customers be able to keep their dealings with an organisation separate? What if it costs more to deliver that way?
This salon gives an opportunity to discuss this topic in a relaxed environment with experts and your peers. The Salon will be followed by networking drinks.

As technology leaders face heightened pressure to radically transform services and deliver significant savings, the Socitm Spring Conference returns with the latest policy developments and best-practice thinking.
THINK Cloud for Local Government 2016 is the first event of this size to focus solely on the objectives, opportunities and challenges facing Local Government concerning cloud adoption and the purchasing of cloud services. With local government finances under a continuous squeeze, and with the Comprehensive Spending Review in the autumn of 2015 expected to outline further deep cuts in departmental spending, further trimming of budgets may no longer be an option. A more radical, transformative set of approaches are needed, to enable local authorities to deliver more responsive and cost effective services, and allow them to connect with their local communities and regional partners in ways that can spur economic growth.

What is Local Government as a Platform (LGaaP)?
When the GDS revealed its futuristic vision of Government as a Platform, their definition was as follows:
“A common core infrastructure of shared digital systems, technology and processes on which it’s easy to build brilliant, user-centric government services.”
Arcus Global will be exhibiting at – the fifth in the series – a conference that expands its remit further to become Think Cloud for Digital Government. The name change reflects the role played by cloud computing as one of the primary enablers for digital transformation across the wider public sector. This year we look not only at the cloud strategy itself, but how it operates alongside the likes of the Digital Services Framework and against a shifting backdrop of traditional IT services contracts winding down.
