Socitm Insight is carrying out a survey of the number and size of websites run by councils with a view to working out what might be gained from reducing them.
The majority of public sector websites risk breaking the law by failing to get the consent of users before they download cookies to their computers.
There are just nine months to go before a deadline set by the Information Commissionerís Office for organisations to make necessary changes to their systems expires. But a Society of Information Managers (Socitm) audit of 603 public sector websites has found that all but six of them have cookies that require them to take action under legislation that came into force in May.
A “distinct lack of customer focus” by the websites of England’s nine top hospitals is “likely to leave patients and visitors struggling to find key information,” according to a survey conducted by the Society of IT Management (Socitm).
Local government ICT leadership group Socitm has performed some 'mystery shopping' of some London libraries - and hasn't been impressed with what it's seen.
As a result it's calling for the overall usability of libraries’ online services to be improved if more customers are to get a better service at lower cost.
