Islington Council explore Family Information Service Management Information System replacement.

Need and demand for interoperable applications, budget slashes and cost cutting is driving Local Authorities to consolidate systems. And where possible, seek contractual efficiency by awarding multiple contracts to the same providers, increasing contract profitability, bargaining power and influence.

With the demise of legacy systems and cutting edge, new technology emerging. Working in co-operation with application vendors to tailor systems that are fit for business purpose, is being seen as most cost effective. Project heads are looking to meet the needs of the service by consolidating with applications currently being used in house, such as Consona or Open Objects.
