UK IT Survey: 11% Have no Plans, or Still Planning, to use GIS

A for fee report titled IT Trends 2013/14 published by Socitm, the professional association for IT leaders in local public services in the UK, reveals some interesting data on GIS implementations. From the press release about the survey which included 128 organizations:

Web content management, geographic information systems (GIS) and data analytics top the list of emerging technologies to exploit. Almost 100% of respondents were planning to deploy web content management in the current year, underlining the use of digital channels to reduce the cost of transactions. 

With regard to GIS, the report finds it ‘somewhat surprising’ that some 11% of respondents either have no plans, or are still planning, to use GIS technology. This is based on the fact that over 90% of public sector data has a geographic component, as well as the technology’s potential in service delivery planning, where overlays can be used to match demand with resources. 

As with GIS, data analytics has a key role in matching declining resources as effectively as possible to increasing demand by helping to spot patterns and trends, and it is ‘no surprise’ to find this technology featuring near the top of the agenda.

Really? In 2014?
