Data-Driven Government Roadshows: Leeds Event
Thu 18 May 2017, 08:30 – 13:00 BST
The must-attend event for data professionals in local authorities, NHS and government departments:
The power of data is now widely recognised as crucial to making public services more effective and improving outcomes. Yet, despite this, many organisations remain at the start of their journey or still have a long way to go before they can fully unlock the opportunities data can bring.
A recent Kable study suggests that although there is a recognition of the new opportunities data presents, there are multiple barriers to innovation. This may include poor data quality, problems integrating multiple systems, the lack of a single view of data and ultimately, the need to save money.
Join us and your peers from other local authorities and government departments for a workshop where we will explore and present real-life case studies where data innovation is being used to;
Reduce fraud and error, most commonly related to tax and benefits
Offer joined-up digital government services, so that users only have to enter data once even where multiple organisations and systems are involved
Use data analytics and predictive modelling to support early state intervention
