Socitm In Our View magazine now available to all

In Our View issue 13I edit the Society of IT Management’s magazine In Our View, which has previously been available to members and conference attendees. Starting with the issue published today, it is available to everyone to download.

This issue includes features on smart places, focusing on Manchester, Bristol and Lancaster, and local government IT in Germany. As usual for Socitm there is a question and answer article with a senior member, in this case Sandra Taylor, head of ICT services at Dudley Council.

News stories include an interview with London’s chief digital officer Theo Blackwell; HullCoin, a new cryptocurrency awarded for good deeds; and Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s use of a robot to help deliver social care. There is also a round-up of council IT news from around the UK, as well as news from Socitm.
