Data is crucial for our public sector organisations to make better, more informed and fairer decisions at a faster pace.
Organisations are starting to see the value of how data insights can create change. But in such a complex space, it can be hard to figure out what data scientists, engineers and analysts each do.
To set the public sector on the right path in their digital projects, we want to challenge organisations to step away from their traditional methods. Here’s what you need to know to make your next data-driven project a success.
Before starting data projects, it’s important for public sector teams to make sure they have the right technical, operational and cultural foundations. In this post I’d like to share what these foundations are, why they matter and how to get them right. If you work in and around data, you probably know a lot of this. But if you work in the public sector digital space and you’re hoping to make better use of your data, this is hopefully of some use!
With environmental targets an ever-growing concern, building applications that are as efficient as possible is more important than ever. Data is the key to understanding the environmental impact your applications have. With this in mind, how do you begin to measure the carbon footprint of your software?
In this post, our Head of Local Government Glen Ocsko looks at 4 reasons why open source data can help local government organisations provide better services.
In this post, our Head of Local Government Glen Oskco explores the role that open source data has to play in local government digital evolution, and how local governments can create better services for their people by becoming data-driven.
In this post, our Head of Local Government Glen Ocsko takes a look at three ways local governments can start to address these challenges and start embedding the process of digital evolution in their organisations.
Continuing his series on data-driven organisations, our Senior Engineer John Nicholas dives deeper into the problem of data and the importance of identifying the distinction between ‘data-driven organisations’ and ‘informed learning organisations’.
Why we should care about data-driven organisations? We will look at the specific problem that drives our inquiry into this area and forms the basis of the direction in how this large topic can be broken down.
