The new issue of Socitm’s In Our View magazine focuses on how open systems, open source software and open data can help councils, a topic that will be discussed at Annual Conference later this month. Camden CIO John Jackson asks for your views on a draft plan for an Open Systems Alliance that would help develop local authorities’ use of these concepts. The issue also covers the launch of Socitm’s Women in IT campaign, work with Adass and developments on Better connected. The international section profiles council computing in New Zealand, and closer to home Rob Miller discusses serving the London boroughs of Kingston and Sutton through a shared ICT service. As usual, In Our View provides updates on Socitm’s meetings, research, policy work and professional development services. It also includes news on how Cambridge City Council is putting IT in its street bins, in order to empty them more efficiently.
