Digital by Default – the future for island states?

The digital agenda in Jersey and Guernsey

C5 Alliance and the importance of digital schemes on the island states.

Mark Loane, CEO of pan Channel-island IT consultants C5 Alliance, has spoken out by saying that digital by default should be a priority strategy for the Channel islands going forward. Loane states that the government’s updated digital strategy, calling for ‘modern, efficient, digital-by-default services’ indicates the future for the islands:

‘Making services such as tax returns, pension and employment claims and other transactional activities like registering a new car or applying for a digital passport could see the States in both islands (Guernsey and Jersey) make significant financial savings. [Digital by default] is the future of government, as digital enables a leaner public sector – something that is equally relevant in small islands as it is in larger economies such as the UK.’
