From the Protect Scotland app, to online learning, to coronavirus testing, digital solutions – specifically those which utilise data – within the public sector have skyrocketed in the last two years. Data is the backbone of these innovations that ensure our community continues to thrive, and with this emphasis on data comes a slew of vital topics that need to exploration.

While the potential of big data is vast, the foundation at which the public sector employs data needs to stand firm. Data quality, stewardship, governance, and security are just some of the pillars needing to adapt and strengthen in this extremely digitised world. With these in place, the sector can then look towards using data in new ways such as machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Join us for Holyrood Connect’s first annual Public Sector Data Summit as we discuss these important aspects of data. We’ll also explore the potential of data through a range of content, including keynote speeches, panel discussions and product demonstrations, on the 8th of March.

Building on the success of our past events, the conference will tap into an established pool of engaged delegates who attend to access cutting-edge analysis delivered by thought leaders from across the globe.

The event is free-to-attend for those working in the public or third sectors. Register now to secure your place. If you are private sector please email us to be added to our waiting list.

In an increasingly digital world, data is a crucial material for both the public and private sectors. The use of data in digital technologies has skyrocketed due to the COVID-19 virus moving everyday resources such as healthcare and education to online platforms. This opening session will focus on the current landscape of data use throughout Scotland’s public sector to give a broad overview of where things stand after a tumultuous two years living in a global pandemic.

The power of data and its impact ultimately relies on the quality of said data, effective collection, and the ability to share it with the appropriate stakeholders system to system. This session will examine these important aspects of data, the current challenges surrounding them, and best practices moving forward, with contributions from public sector experts.

With high-quality data collected, organisations can utilise data science and analysis to drive insight and better decision-making. These analytics can then enable improved services across the public sector. This session will be comprised of a panel discussion amongst sector experts about how best to maximise the value of data, and the impact data analysis can bring to an organisation.

This series of short presentations will highlight three case studies that exemplify the innovation achieved through the use of data.

In the final session of Public Sector Data Summit 2022, we will welcome a thought leader in public sector data use, who will look towards the future and provide insight on how Scotland can further harness the potential of data.
