Converged Sectors

Local Government

Capita’s roots are in local government and, over the last three decades, we’ve evolved and changed alongside the changing needs of the sector.

We have many close, long-standing relationships with local councils, supporting them in the challenges they face by delivering a variety of services – ranging from specific software tools to significant joint working on achieving tangible external outcomes. Although many people think of us as an outsourcing business, our services go well beyond that – for example we are one of the largest UK providers of professional services to property and infrastructure, a capability that is becoming very relevant given renewed focus on economic growth and regeneration. We know that technology can help transform public services and to do that requires investment and innovation – and we’re working with colleagues in the sector to develop new approaches that are deeply grounded in front-line practice.

The pressure of government cuts and budget constraints is placing increasing pressure on front line services, as a result back-end infrastructure is under even greater pressure to deliver value. Many public sector organisations suffer from a legacy of policy change, technology short cuts and lack of investment, compounded over time this environment prohibits real innovation and service development.

At S3 our technology and service offerings directly support many of the back-end system innovations required by public sector today. Solutions such as Big Data Analytics are now shaping the whole customer experience, virtual environments need the flexibility to scale and down dependant on demand, legacy environments can no longer exist as islands of data or siloes of technology, integration and abstraction or core data is the real asset capable of transforming government services.
