The UK government is committed to delivering efficient, secure digital public services that place the citizen’s needs at the centre. The Cabinet Office aims to achieve around £1.8bn cost savings through its digital by default agenda. That’s why we’ve set up Capgemini Digital Government.
What is Digital Government?
Capgemini Digital Government is a new unit focusing on the digital by default agenda and offering world-class innovative and citizen-centric digital services across the public sector. This team brings together people from our business who understand and recognise the digital revolution, and are embracing these trends. We believe it’s the first unit in the UK IT industry that is dedicated solely to digital transformation in the public sector.

SUCCESS STORY: IT PLATFORM ENABLES EXPANSION
Digital transformationCapgemini is at the forefront of digital transformation and is leading the development of integrated, multi-channel, multi-tenant architectures that will underpin the services government requires now and in the future. This unit delivers innovative and citizen-centric digital solutions through the use of agile techniques, embracing the innovation that Small and Medium Enterprises bring and recognising the value of Open Source.
Our understanding of service orchestration will help drive government on its digital maturity journey. For example, last year, we signed a G-Cloud framework agreement with the Government Procurement Service for provision of cloud computing services and a range of supporting expert services. G-Cloud aims to provide a faster and safer entry into cloud computing for the entire UK public sector.
