A local GDS, for Local People

A local GDS, for Local People | Collaboration and Open Innovation | Scoop.it
GDS is the acronym for the Government Digital Service, which was set-up by the Cabinet Office to ‘transform’ government digital services. GDS is responsible for – amongst other things – the single government domain.

Some concern has been expressed that GDS is ‘hoovering-up’ local digital talent, but it’s generally perceived as a ‘force for good’ in the central government digital space.
Collaboration Works's insight:

"Collaboration doesn’t need to involve expensive procurements, it’s founded on mutual trust, sharing and cooperation."

Why CIOs May Morph Into the Chief Digital Officer

Gartner predicts that by 2015, about a quarter of all companies will have created a new seat at the senior executive table–the Chief Digital Officer. 

“The Chief Digital Officer plays in the place where the enterprise meets the customer, where the revenue is generated and the mission accomplished. They’re in charge of the digital business strategy. That’s a long way from running back office IT, and it’s full of opportunity.”

It is a commitment from a company to its employees that patents can only be used for defensive purposes. The company will not use the patents in offensive litigation without the permission of the inventors. This control flows with the patents, so if the company sells the patents to others, the assignee can only use the patents as the inventor intended
