Data4Good – A positive perspective for public services

24th October 2017, 15 Hatfields, London

Partnership opportunities available for UKAuthority's seminal event exploring how the public sector can harness the power of data

It has become part of the conventional wisdom that the intelligent use of data is now an essential factor in the evolution of public services. On one hand it is the key ingredient in ensuring that services are delivered effectively on a day-to-day basis; on the other it can be used to provide insights into performance, demand and the influence of previously unseen influences, all of which are needed to design services for the future.

Topics to be explored include:

  • Data standards: the importance of a consistent approach.
  • Data science: where it could produce tangible improvements in services.
  • How open data is opening the gates for new citizen services.
  • The advantages of data visualisation.
  • How to keep the public onside: steps to build citizen trust in the use of personal data.
  • Changes in the regulatory landscape: implications of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Digital Economy Act.
  • What are the new sources of data that can be harnessed to improve services?
  • Data from the internet of things: lessons for the smart places agenda.

Audience: 80 C-suite decision makers, influencers and technology leaders from central and local government, police, fire, housing and health, with responsibilities including but not limited to Chief Information Officers, Heads of IT, Assistant Chief Executives, Business Managers, Heads of Digital, Heads of Customer Services, Heads of Transformation or Change, Heads of Finance, Heads of HR Heads of Social Care and Departmental Service Heads/Senior Managers .

Speakers: Thought leaders from the public and private sector exploring the potential power the public sector has to harness data.

Output: Editorial, news and briefing note with sponsor comment published and distributed to the UKAuthority audience
