The Digital Office for Scottish Local Government has published a Heartbeat Marketing Pack to build a cohort of interested individuals from across the Digital Partnership, to deliver on an exciting new project looking at Microsoft Office 365 and Collaboration.
The pack showcases some key work happening across the wider sector, the benefits and outcomes expected from the programme, the resource requirements to enable the programme to be taken forward and also Chief Information Security Officer for Scottish Local Government, Dr Andy Grayland, provides an insight into the cyber-security aspects that need to be considered during planning and implementation.
Martyn Wallace, Chief Digital Officer for Scottish Local Government explains in the Heartbeat Pack: "As we move to a more mobile and flexible workforce, it is vital we adopt and deploy the latest tools in the Microsoft Office suite plus “sweat the asset” in all the extras it gives us such as, the collaborative working opportunities which would not only provide productivity gains but can also help save costs such as complex expensive group/collaborative calling solutions, travel costs for meetings, cost to serve the public and in some cases our building estates as staff can work from home whatever the weather."
The forthcoming weeks will be used to promote all aspects of the pack and enable the Digital Office to gather the resources required to take the project forward. The Senior Project Manager for the Digital Office leading on this work, Martin Talbot, will analyse the level of interest and be in touch with those colleagues who are interested in participating.
