I am delighted with the breadth and depth of this report. Digital means something different to almost everyone, but there is a core consensus which the report draws out by focussing on what people have recently delivered with digital in the local public sector.

The innovation and ingenuity that is highlighted in this review of the digital landscape is impressive. Often with very small budgets and certainly with decreasing resources, digital leaders from across the country have shown what can be done. 

Steve Halliday, President of Socitm and Chief Information Officer, Solihull MBC

The report presents:

  • a vision for digital services for 2020, based on four examples of best practice that have emerged in 2013
