London, UK (PRWEB) October 18, 2013
The UK councils’ spending on various applications and related services for social services exceeded EUR 70 million during 2012-2013. With social care comprising the largest share of councils' total expenditure, as well as with soaring costs due an ageing population, the local government is seeking ways to economize on the multitudinous applications used by social services, with rationalisation also serving the business intelligence (BI) it requires to provide smart social services.
The main IT challenges include concerns around sharing restricted data, integration with heterogeneous systems, timely access to relevant information, the call for the rationalization of hosting technologies, among others. Transitioning to integrated care, reducing service expenditure, responding to changes in service demand, etc. pose key challenges to social care today. CACI, Capita, CareWorks, Civica, Corelogic, Liquidlogic, Northgate, OLM Systems, Oxford Computer Consultants, and Softbox are the leading suppliers of social care applications.
