Stream 2: Chaired by Helen Olsen, Managing Editor, UKAuthority

A session at Socitm 2013

Monday 9th December, 2013

11:25am to 12:25pm (GMT)

11:25 - 11:50: Keynote: Innovation in an age of austerity
A recent study by the New Local Government Network reported that most councils recognise they could achieve savings by innovative approaches to service delivery. At the same time, they are concerned the pace of change in local government is too slow for effective innovation. So how can this barrier be overcome to achieve the holy grail of improved, innovative services and increased savings? How can IT be used as an enabler to lower the barriers to innovation? Will new models based around co-operation and co-creation innovate or disrupt public service delivery?

Simon Parker, Director, New Local Government Network

11:50 - 12:20: Think Big! How large scale IAM creates value
We are rapidly moving towards an interconnected digital world where secure access is not a privilege for the few, but a necessity for the many. Yesterday the challenge was to protect access for remote workers in the public sector, today we are exploring shared services and tomorrow we are facing the challenges of citizen authentication. But the new era of digital identity at scale is not only about mitigating risk. The big change is that we now can start creating real value with IAM by enhancing services, improving workflow, simplify processes and make substantial cost savings in a multitude of instances, not only within the IT-department.

Johan Henrikson, CEO, Verisec
