2010 Guide to Technology for the European Public Sector
A prevailing theme that runs through the market is that it is going through a period of change. Governments are expected to solve all sorts of new global challenges, and are under pressure to stimulate their economies while managing huge deficits.

As a result, spending on technology is seeing a shift. Priorities around modernizing services (embracing new technologies), digital nations, and citizen-centric services will have to take a backseat as efficiency drives, managing budget cuts, and doing more with less become top of mind. Despite this seemingly austere period in the market, it is still a time of opportunity for IT vendors.
