Evolution not Revolution – from 'psn' to PSN
Although the PSN is often discussed as if it were a new concept for Local Government and Health, customers in both sectors have been successfully running high performance public sector networks or 'psn's' for years, so the shift to the ‘PSN’ (Public Services Network) is not as radical as might first appear. However, the emergence of the PSN offers exciting new opportunities in terms of innovation and market transparency, as well as presenting new challenges in terms of compliance and governance. However, to achieve the full potential from PSN, the reality is that the network remains the key.
Updata is widely recognised as a pioneer in the development and rollout of Public Sector Networks, and has been an active supporter of the PSN programme since its inception. Updata is a member of Innopsis, the industry association for any organisation or individual that provides PSN services to the Public Sector, and is at the forefront of the collaboration between Industry and Public Sector to develop and implement standards, especially around security.
