Essex County Council (ECC) believes successful digital transformation is underpinned by world class technology provisions.

Significant work is underway to reform the IT estate of Essex County Council. The Council is currently delivering a significant cloud migration programme, alongside deployment of new tools and the rationalisation of a broad applications estate which increasingly is moving toward a Software-as-a-Service approach. ECC envisages a future where technology can transform both how the Council works and how they deliver services. Whilst this ambition is not in itself unique, unusually it is not driven solely by an over-riding imperative to reduce costs; the Council has an enviable track record of prudent financial management. Rather, ECC is driven by its passion to provide a truly liberating and empowering, connected, interactive customer experience. This will enable residents and businesses to access a diverse range of essential and non-essential public services, at a time, place and via a medium of their choosing. Employees will also be able to share their ideas openly, working collaboratively without barriers.
