08 October 2019

Enabling Scotland's Digital Transformation

You're invited...

Join the Scottish Wide Area Network (SWAN) Authority and Capita for an unmissable event. Gain greater insight into the major successes of SWAN and find out about the key benefits of membership.

About SWAN
The Scottish Wide Area Network (SWAN)is one of the most significant single public sector ICT initiatives ever undertaken in Scotland. The programme was set up to establish a single shared network and common ICT infrastructure across Scotland’s entire public sector. So far more than 6,000 sites have been connected, including schools, hospitals, GP surgeries, pharmacists and local council offices. SWAN is bringing reduced costs, improved service and the ability to share data across organisations, fostering co-operative working. NHS National Services Scotland acts as the contract lead and SWAN Authority.

About the event
We will share with you examples of how SWAN has benefitted the public sector and citizens across Scotland and the innovations that are being achieved. You will hear about the latest advancements we’re making in delivering IoT solutions; hear from SWAN Authority, Capita and customer representatives about the benefits you can derive from membership; and discover more about the portfolio of core and Value-Added services that are available to your organisation once you are a member; all whilst having the valuable opportunity to meet and network with like-minded organisations and peers.
