Open Technology for Government

With an estimated annual ICT spend of £20bn within the UK Government, there are great opportunities to implement savings and reduce this spend by using real innovation.

Recently, we have seen the endorsement of Open technology from Central Government, with supporting statements from various departments including CESG, confirming the position from a security standpoint. As an example, the Government Digital Strategy 'Digital by Default’ commits government departments to meet a number of standards, including ‘making all source code open and reusable… use open standards and common Government platforms…’

Open Source and Open Standards will ensure the creation of value-driven services, which maximise the cost efficiency of solutions delivered. With an increasing number of people demanding Open Source and Open Standards, we have been creating solutions to deliver cost savings, efficiency and high reliability business and IT systems.

OpusVL is well placed to assist with reducing spend through the use of license free Open Source software without vendor lock-in. Having delivered projects across the board, our experience will introduce diversification to your systems – not your processes – enabling the seamless transfer of information and data across departments.

Our aim is to support clients by providing systems capable of delivering efficient services through the adoption of:

  • Cost savings through open-source software and business focus
  • Leverage re-use of existing IT investments and hardware
  • 'Off-the-shelf' or bespoke finance and communications systems
  • Integration of existing systems and processes
  • Removal of system complexities
  • Wiki and content management system design and integrations

Whether you are looking to improve your current infrastructure or reduce costs by undertaking changes to increase your efficiency, we welcome the opportunity for a discussion based around your needs.
