Both a showcase and exploration of how data can safely be used for the public good, UKAuthority Data4good takes place on 24th October at 15 Hatfields, Waterloo, London.

It has become part of the conventional wisdom that the intelligent use of data is now an essential factor in the evolution of public services. On one hand it is the key ingredient in ensuring that services are delivered effectively on a day-to-day basis; on the other it can be used to provide insights into performance, demand and the influence of previously unseen influences, all of which are needed to design services for the future.

This is an exciting time for public servants seeking to harness the potential. Firstly, they are shedding their anxieties around the sharing of citizen data, and showing confidence that it can be used to target and tailor services more effectively around the individual. Secondly, the expansion of expertise in analytics and data science is opening up an array of possibilities to support the long term management and planning of services.

UKAuthority is throwing the focus on the positives with an event that will bring together a selection of leaders in the field to highlight how data can be used for the public good. They will look at the practicalities, face up to the problems, but maintain an emphasis on the potential for a new generation of services that meet intensifying public demands within the budgetary constraints on the public sector.

Join us on the 24th October to hear from industry specialists and local authorities moving into this sphere.
