At SOCITM 2015 we are also talking about how cBrain is working with a UK local authority to create a new digital production platform for local government: Council-as-a-Service (Caas).

Many local authorities are looking to reduce costs while improving service quality for residents. To do this the council needs first to be able to understand the individual needs of residents, and then streamline internal processes and be in control of what needs doing and when. The challenge local authorities face is an environment with multiple line of business applications, each with its own data store and user interface.

CaaS offers councils an opportunity to create a shared digital archive where data is available to whoever should be able to see it - whether that's a council leader, a member of staff, or the resident. By re-using the Danish model for digital public administration, CaaS will ensure that residents, directors and employees can get mobile access to council data using smartphones or tablets.

Residents can start a process online, and stay updated on how the council handles their case. Councils can reduce the number of business applications needed, and simplify their business processes. And employees get more done each day, without having to keep multiple systems in synch.
