Public Sector Forums are running their annual mobile and flexible working survey which looks at the usage of mobile and flexible working practices of Local Authorities and other public sector organisations.
This 10 minute survey is designed to gain an insight into the adoption of these technologies, the benefits and challenges facing organisations trying to use them. It differentiates between Line of business and Personal Information Management (PIM) usage and also questions the different approach being taken by organisations in acquiring mobile solutions.
They have had a large number of responses to the survey already, a preview of which can be viewed at this editorial piece (note you will have to login to the PSF site to access the article – membership is free to those working in the public sector.) A quick taster:
“the survey also reveals that the current economic climate is impacting greatly upon councils’ approaches to their mobile working, prompting many to look for ways to deliver their strategies at lower cost….Comments indicated that councils were very aware that they still had much work to do to fully realise the benefits of mobile working.“
The survey will feed into a report which will be available to all who participate, with the findings to be unveiled at Public Sector Forums’ Government Goes Mobile SOUTH event being held in Milton Keynes on 24th November 2009.
All those that participate in the survey will be eligible for a £75 + VAT discounted place at the event and will also go into a prize draw for an Apple iTouch with the winner drawn on the day.
