The Government is rejigging public sector computing again - this time it's going to look a lot like standard IT with a lot of cloud-based apps being downloaded to systems in the real world. As yet the facility to actually buy any of these apps hasn't been put in place but it's a work in progress. A BBC report suggests the aim is to save £180m by 2015 although given the rate of technological change this is a difficult thing to forecast.
