Description

CapGemini logo

Join Capgemini and Praesto Consulting, for a half day meeting providing participants with an opportunity to learn how different Authorities are succeeding in an ever evolving landscape. Take the chance to listen to the audience sharing their experiences during the morning sessions and discuss what you have heard with your peers over lunch.

Capgemini: Are your systems financially fit for the coming year?

In the face of continued austerity and Local Government’s need to be innovative with cost saving and income generation, fresh ideas are required. Capgemini will provide guidance on their approach and thoughts on meeting the demands placed upon Authorities. Capgemini will provide an overview of the evolution that IT systems can play from efficiency savings through to full transformational change, all driving down TCO and providing continuous improvement opportunities. The importance of how cloud technology supports a move from Target Operating Model to a Dynamic Operating Model is also instrumental in meeting the challenges placed on Local Government.

Praesto Consulting: Is your Section 151 Officer going to explode?

The pressures on the S151 Officer have increased significantly in recent years, particularly with regards to reporting timely and accurate information. Many Authorities continue to ‘drown in spreadsheets’ and manual processes in the run up to year end, as well as during critical points throughout the year. Praesto Consulting will present how they are working with customers to improve their planning, budgeting and forecasting capabilities, shorten the close process and automate statutory reporting. MTFP’s, Balance Sheet, Annual Report and Outturn forecasts are becoming increasingly complex and critical. Praesto Consulting will present how they can implement projects that can provide an in-year return on investment and deliver the financial visibility needed today.
