Integrating data between government organisations could help save taxpayers £33bn

A report released today by the Policy Exchange Think Tank says up to £33bn a year could be saved from public spending without cutting services if the government made better use of data already in the system.
July 3, 2012 - PRLog -- The possible savings could be created by making use of existing data gathered from citizens applying for passports, driving licenses, tax returns and social media, and are equivalent to £500 for every person in the country.  The report’s author Chris Yiu believes finding ways to share or link this data together has the potential to save time for citizens and money for taxpayers.

Mikko Soirola, VP for Liaison Technologies, said, “We live and work in a connected online world in which organisations have huge amounts of data coming in from suppliers, partners and customers making it a very powerful resource.  However, as the report indicates, the data is not linked and is often in formats native to that supplier or a specific internal department.  This limits use across the enterprise as manually turning it into meaningful information can be a laborious process.  Forward thinking organisations have turned to Integration Service Providers to solve these issues, and the government would be well advised to consider doing the same in light of the huge saving and improvements in efficiencies possible when partnering with such services providers.”
