The public sector is in a state of continuous need to update and improve legacy systems and ways of working. Local government is being urged to progress and digitise their systems for a more efficient, cost-effective and stable future.

When solutions are built to solve only one problem, legacy and data issues are more likely, creating silos, delays and more costs in the long run. A digital ecosystem, where things are built to be shared and work in the open, is the change we need, bridging the gap between what was done before and what can be done now.

In this talk, Made Tech’s Head of Local Government Glen Ocskó will explore how to build a digital ecosystem where everyone in the public sector can thrive – including users!

Key takeaways

  • What a digital ecosystem in the public sector looks like
  • Why we should design and build work that allows others to add value
  • How to make sure data is shared and accessible
