EN: Transforming Public Sector Data: Driving Efficiency and Improving Public Services 2021
Data is the driving force in the world’s modern economies and it fuels innovation in businesses. During the Covid-19 pandemic, governments, businesses, organisations, and public services were able to share vital information quickly, efficiently, and ethically and it enabled people to work from home.
The National Data Strategy aims to improve data use in government and maintain the high watermark of data use set during the pandemic. Data and data use should be seen as opportunities to be embraced threats against which to be guarded. The Data Protection Bill aims to make our data protection laws fit for the digital age and empower people to take control of their data. The Local Digital movement calls on the public sector to take collaborative actions to improve local services for users, support more diversity and competition in the public sector IT market, and offer better value for money by building reusable patterns and standards.
This event will explore how to use data effectively to drive a new era of growth in the public sector to boost efficiency and improve public services. Through a series of high-level keynotes and practical case study examples, delegates will gain valuable insights into a range of key issues regarding how to use data effectively in the public sector.
