Introduction

In collaboration with analysts from The Telecoms, Healthcare and Consumer Markets business units, in this brief Ovum's Government Technology team outlines the key changes in the government sector, explains which trends will have the biggest impact, and analyses the implications and opportunities of these developments for both governments and providers of technologies and services.

Scope
