UKtech50 2015 - The most influential people in UK IT

7/26

7. Liam Maxwell, Government CTO

A UKtech50 winner in 2013, Liam Maxwell is leading the reform of how technology is purchased, implemented and managed within central government. As such, he has direct influence over much of the billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money spent on Whitehall IT. He is promoting greater use of open standards, open source and cloud computing, using smaller IT contracts and more SME suppliers – attempting to break the stranglehold of the oligopoly of large companies that have dominated government IT.
