Digitisation in public sector
We are delighted to invite you to attend Cisco’s inaugural UK Public Sector Partner Summit at our Bedfont Lakes offices, London on the 4th November 2015.
The need to leverage digital technology to transform the way public services are delivered to citizens has been recognised (up to ministerial level) by the UK Government and this is reflected in the recent Spending Review:
We will also make greater use of digital technology to modernise Britain’s public services and give people greater choice in the decisions that affect them and their communities.Spending Review July 2015
This event is an outstanding opportunity to interact with Cisco and industry experts to hear about how together we can help ‘Enable Digital Transformation in the Public Sector’. We will discuss key trends impacting the UK Public Sector and the opportunities this creates for our partners across all verticals with specific details on our FY16 strategy from our sales leadership team.

Close & Call to Action
Central Government: £20Bn by 2020: The role of Smart & Connected Workplace
(Justin Woolen, Enterprise Networks Sales Specialist + Ryan Pacheco, Account Manager)
‘The Government’s Efficiency & Reform analysis highlighted five main areas of savings to help achieve £20Bn by 2020. This session focuses on estate consolidation and how the Cisco Smart + Connected Workplace Solution (Enterprise Mobility + Collaboration) can enable government employees to work smarter and faster whilst reducing the cost of running Government buildings.
Health & Social Care: From Healthcare to Health and Social Care : Digital Transformation within the NHS
(Andrew Jobson, Healthcare Technical Lead)
Care providers in England are fast becoming commercial enterprises in all but name. They are more now than ever before tasked with protecting and increasing market share, identifying opportunities to generate new revenue streams, forming ecosystems, and embracing client relationship management, all of which may appear far removed from their core clinical remit. This session will cover how an NHS organisation can embrace digital transformation and realise the benefits inherent with that transformation. We will also look into the changing landscape within the NHS to cover Government initiatives and programmes (5 Year Forward View, Integrated Care and Vanguard Sites).
Local Government: Connecting the Dots – Creating a Smart City’
(Stu Higgins, Head of PSN)
A smarter city is a more attractive place to live and work. How does a city compete with others? Certain cities around the world are being held up as exemplars of smart and connected communities’ but how did they get started and what are their future plans?
It will be difficult to create a smart city or any other smart community without pervasive connectivity and a City Operating Model. But what should it look like and who should pay for it? How do you convince people to share their data and ensure it is secure? Who should you target and how do you convince them to take the first steps?
We’ll take a look at local and global examples of best practice and how other cities got started and what they plan to do next.
Defence: Digital Defence from the forward edge to the strategic echelon
(Andrew Dobson, Vertical Solutions Architect)
Over the last 10 years UK Defence has seen exponential development of its tactical IT capabilities, thus putting a strain on the Services and Infrastructure that support it. Their digital transformation strategy will now bridge the technological divide; in particular as they move from a kinetic expeditionary posture, to that based upon Information centric warfare.?
Within this breakout, we will discuss what this means to Cisco, its partners and how we can enable both digital transformation and the adoption of Information Centric Warfare to not only coexist, but to stay technologically coherent.
Education: Digital Disruption in Education
(Chris Blenkhorn, Vertical Solutions Architect)
‘All education institutions are fast becoming businesses and, as such, must use all available means to increase efficiency and deliver teaching, learning and research in new ways.
Digital technology has a key role to play in achieving these business requirements, and institutions, like commercial enterprises, must ensure that they are not digitally disrupted by nimbler competition.
This breakout session provides more information on a digital strategy for education, and explains why one is essential to supplement the business plans of any modern institution’
Intercloud: Hybrid IT & value of The Intercloud
(John Johnson, Vertical Solutions Architect + Jo Laking, UKI Director of Cloud)
‘There is a growing consensus that the Public Sector can realise significant cost savings through buying IT and digital services in a different way – as metered/managed services. The impact of the “cloud” is substantial and there are great examples of how cloud services are transforming the provision of IT services to the Public Sector. However, the adoption of cloud presents as many challenges for IT departments and cloud service providers as it does opportunities. Cisco is increasingly being asked for business and technology advice on how best to plan for, and adopt, cloud services, as one size does not fit all. This session focuses on the value of Cisco’s Cloud Strategy, The Intercloud and capturing key market transitions like Hybrid IT. The team will share trusted advice to help customers develop appropriate cloud sourcing strategies and confidently select your cloud services, which meet both the security needs of end users and the requirements of the business.
Digital: Disrupt or be disrupted: Cisco’s Digital Transformation
(Chris Cherry, Solutions Executive & Cisco on Cisco, Cisco IT)
‘Four of today’s top 10 incumbents (in terms of market share) in each industry will be displaced by digital disruption in the next five years. The threat extends not only to displacement of big companies, but also to the very existence of entire industries. Today, the potential for new digital disruptors to arise from seemingly nowhere is greater than ever — as they combine seemingly unrelated technologies and business models into new cutting-edge solutions. The industry that will experience the most digital disruption between now and 2020 is technology products and services, so are you ready? The Cisco on Cisco session focuses on our own Digital Transformation and the principles can be applied to the public sector whether its omni-channel experiences, real-time collaboration between ecosystem partners or data analytics for more informed real time decision making.
Security: Revolution or Evolution of Information Assurance within the Public Sector?
(Mark Jackson, Information Assurance Architect)
Information assurance within the UK Public Sector has undergone significant change since the introduction of the new Government Security Classification scheme in 2014. The sector remains unclear on the impact of these changes that sees far greater emphasis for information security decisions making being placed on individual departments, rather than being provided through guidance from CESG and other central bodies. This added to an evolving compliance landscape for PSN and G-Cloud has resulted in much confusion and this session aims to first outline the scope of changes that have occurred and provide some clarity on how the changes should be interpreted, and importantly how partners can increase their relevance with customers by providing sound, risk-based security advice and guidance.
Legal Compliance and security has never been more important. Purple Wi-Fi delivers peace of mind to organisations operating within the public sector. People also expect access to free WiFi wherever they are and community centres, housing associations and council buildings are no different. By engaging with citizens through social WiFi relevant news can be communicated as we all as updates and news on public services, the facilities and services open to individuals.
Lancope’s StealthWatch® System helps transform a Cisco network into a sensor to detect sophisticated cyber-attacks anywhere on the network without the high cost of deploying expensive probes. With todays evolving threat landscape enhanced security and visibility is key for all public sector organisations
Asset Mapping is an open platform that enables real time visualisation and monitoring of assets with the built environment. Asset Mapping can help deliver significant savings in building and energy costs and show the health and location of assets – all key in the Public Sector environment
