"The database is designed to give social workers, police and hospital with common access to contact details on children and other professionals working with them, so that care professionals can more easily contact each other and exchange information. Case history files will not be housed on the system."
So £224m (+ £44m a year) for an address book? How is putting technology in the way going to make diverse groups of health and social care professionals suddenly break the habit of a lifetime and start talking to each other?

Go to Google and do a search on the word 'modular'

Do you wanna be a record breaker?
From the BBC news site:
"It's a global effort to make history," said Paul Kim, head of marketing at Mozilla.
"There is actually no record for the greatest amount of software downloaded in one day, so for 24 hours from the moment we push the bits live, that's when the countdown starts," he said.
Breaking a record which doesn't exist - sounds tough...
