To understand the gap between political aspiration and reality – and, more importantly, how it can begin to be fixed – we explore the experience of two Parliamentary-system governments and their attempts to use technology to reform and modernise their services since the 1990s. The United Kingdom and Australia offer interesting insights into administrations that have long seen the opportunity to be seized, but which have repeatedly struggled to deliver the scale of improvement required in the way their public services are designed, operated and maintained.
