In this article I look at UK ‘digital’ initiatives during the past few years, arguing that the predominant emphasis on online access needs replacing with one on transitioning the business model of government itself.  Government needs to step up to the important role of ‘platform entrepreneur’.  I draw parallels with Apple’s platform/ecosystem model as one for UK government to take seriously – particularly for local services.
