Are we about to get an new government-wide IT strategy?

Reports are filtering in that the government is about to launch a new IT strategy, refreshing the Transformational Government agenda and tying in with Treasury initiatives.
The implications would trickle down throughout the whole public sector, and there are mentions of further savings and a slow reduction of IT staff. This is hardly surprising, but interesting to hear how public sector tech could be shaped in the next few years.
The strategy, according to UKauthority.com, will stretch to 2020 and emphasises the importance of cloud computing and open source software. We’ve requested information from the Cabinet Office and HM Treasury and will update the story as we hear more.
