Embracing digital change whilst improving everyday services
Technology has changed and is continuing to change the entire landscape for local authorities and cities.
Today’s citizen is not only comfortable with technology, but views it as the simplest and most convenient way to interact with friends, retailers and service providers. This is translating into citizens expecting local governments and cities to provide more joined-up services available through any device.
This drive towards greater citizen involvement and personalisation is a paradigm shift for the way that local authorities and cities interact with their cities, as well as being an opportunity for delivering efficiencies.
Atos designs and delivers a complete range of digital solutions that transform public sector services while renovating and reinforcing core systems to be more effective. Our data-driven services help local authorities and cities to make better informed and more timely decisions, and our seamless processes ensure security is built in at every level.

Challenges and solutions
Digital technologies offer new challenges and opportunities in every part of local government. We take a pragmatic approach, contributing to strategic thinking while staying grounded in the practical application of digital innovation to meet our customers’ challenges in four key areas.
Improving citizens’ experience of local services through digital self-service, greater personalization and ease of interaction.
Collaborating and sharing information to deliver improved outcomes for vulnerable citizens and local authority staff.
Transforming business models and services that take advantage of new, agile, digital technologies and ways of working to drive efficiencies.
Trust and compliance
Safeguarding critical infrastructure, data, staff and citizens in an evolving threat landscape with effective cyber security in-built.
Blaenau Gwent council led a ground-breaking project with two other councils, health services and police to join-up and share information about vulnerable citizens on the Multi-Agency Vulnerability Intelligence System. With a more detailed, holistic picture of each individual, agencies can deliver earlier interventions and better-targeted services for vulnerable and potentially vulnerable citizens.
“Collaborating to get better intelligence is in the public’s best interests, in terms of quality of life and cost-effectiveness.”
