Govt 5-year ICT strategy 'leaked'
1st December 2009, 03:25 PM #2
I love this quote:
No really? I didn't know that was possible To me this report is just another NHS take 2. Billions have been invested, yet projects still not completed and workers still re-entering information manually. Hardly a step forward
It also predicts that by 2020 new software will allow computers to do tasks currently carried out by humans.

Considering that when Labour takes on an ICT project, they become too ambitious and end up spending 10's of billions of extra pounds in tax payers money due to poor planning, I'm glad it is unambitious!!!
Why are the conservatives slating that? They also accuse Labour of spending too much... Surely them spending less is a good idea? Wait, that's not how politics works is it?

Politics.... Isn't it a case of
"When you are in power... you remind everyone how bad it was under the old Govt..."
"When you are in opposition.... you tell everyone how bad a job the Govt is doing & say you would do it better?"
If you have no hope of being in power, you "promise you would do it better than everyone else & save the planet?"

well, it's got all the buzzwords hasn't it...
social networking, clouds, app stores, shared utility service [is that another word for hotdesking, i have no idea]...
interesting stuff, but i'm never convinced by the savings bandied about from such IT strategies.

Also...when you finally get back in power you announce that you can't do all the things you promised because the last lot left things in such a mess...
