Capgemini to form a Digital Government unit to help the public sector

Consultant firm Capgemini has said that it is creating a Digital Government unit which will work to help the public sector meet its Digital by Default agenda and will start work immediately. It will be headed by Capgemini Vice President Matt Howell who will report to Bill Cook, Head of Government Business at Capgemini UK and CEO of Capgemini Consulting UK, and will be staffed by those from the company who have relevant IT and public sector experience.

According to Cook: “The feedback we have received from public sector management at all levels shows a pressing demand for fully joined-up support for the many challenges of digital transformation from a global consulting and IT leader.”

The unit will offer “consultancy on overall strategy, channel management and business process transformation” as well as “website and systems design, project implementation and monitoring of results,” he said. Capgemini will also offer its Cloud computing services.

The firm has in the past worked with several governmental departments, such as HMRC and DWP.
