So what the hell is Business Transformation?

Ian Watmore spills the beans

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

These days it is not enough to be agile with your business. Now you have to be in the business of business transformation. Sounds impressive, doesn't it? But what does business transformation mean, exactly.

Err...

The Society of IT Management reckons it knows a thing or two about the matter, and it is running a one day-conference on Business Transformation in Birmingham on 20 February 2006. Headline speaker is Ian Watmore, former head of the e-government unit and now in charge of the Prime Minister's Delivery Unit (which makes him sound rather like a jumped-up removals man).

He will discuss the eGU's strategy document Transformational Government: Enabled by Technology and what it means for local government. Julian Bowrey will throw in his tuppence-worth from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister at a time when its "national local e-government programme is drawing to a close and emphasis is switching from delivery to take-up".

The rest of the conference will highlight how "business transformation is already being achieved in councils of all types up and down the UK".

So there you have it. Depending on who you are, the conference costs between £175 and £399. Booking is - very e-government this - online only. Head over to www.socitm.gov.uk. And take it from there.

Can't make it? Socitm has 100 case studies on studies on transformation and e-government submitted by its members here. ®
