Holyrood’s Connect Week returned for its second year running. This year, the week begun with our in-person Public Sector Cloud conference at Dynamic Earth Edinburgh, and then moved online for a series of engaging webinars set across two mornings. These webinars focused on various topics at the heart of the Scottish digital landscape and delved into the topics rooted in this calendar year’s Connect portfolio of events, including Public Sector Cyber Security Scotland, Public Sector Data Summit, Digital Transformation and more.
Focus areas across the two days included:
• digital connectivity and infrastructure
• cloud security
• digital inclusion and skills
• the roles and ramifications of artificial intelligence and machine learning
Through engaging sessions of various formats, Connect Week 2022 allowed public and third sector professionals to keep abreast of the latest developments within the space and gain a better understanding of future trends. Delegates heard from thought leaders and industry experts and had the opportunity to engage with them through audience Q&As. Speakers and panellists brought a breadth of experience and insight and offered technical and user-centric perspectives.
