Local Government Reform in Northern Ireland – the IT challenge.
The merger of councils in Northern Ireland, reducing the number of councils from 26 to 11 and creating super councils, is well underway with new councils required to be operational by April 2015. Technology is a key enabler in both the efficient delivery of existing citizen services and the introduction of new and innovative services. It follows that there is an urgent need to create a robust IT strategy and plan which builds on the strengths of the existing infrastructures and ensures that a converged infrastructure can be created to support the new councils, all without impacting the day to day delivery of services.
