LONDON, May 29, 2014 — Research from International Data Corporation (IDC) shows that 2014 will be a turning point for public administrations because they must focus on greater efficiency while undergoing transformation to meet the demands of increasingly savvy constituents that expect a better citizen experience. In the past five years, administrations have had to "do more with less" but this paradigm has run its course and a new paradigm is emerging — "doing new with less."

In light of this new paradigm, on June 25, 2014, IDC Spain will organize the 2014 Public Sector ICT Forum in collaboration with IDG Spain.

The event will discuss the following key themes:

  • Citizen experience: unification of interaction channels
  • Road maps toward efficiency
  • Mobility: mobile services for citizens
  • Big Data: intelligence and analytics for citizens
  • Cloud models for public administrations
  • Social business and cooperation among public administrations and in the public/private domain
  • Transformational outsourcing: efficiency and agility models in outsourcing
  • IT governance in public administrations
  • Evolution of smart cities: the role of the Internet of Things

"Central, regional, and local governments in Spain look to make the administration more transparent and improve citizen experience, while increasing the efficiency of resource allocation," said Massimiliano Claps, research director, IDC EMEA Government Insights and Health Insights. "Adopting the right 3rd Platform tools will help with that long-term outcome, but it will be even more important to innovate how those 3rd Platform technologies are bought, implemented, integrated with legacy architectures, and used."

Event dates and location: June 25, 2014 — Madrid, Spain
