Event description

Description

Scotland’s local authorities are on a digital journey that will fundamentally change the way they provide services to their citizens.

Councils must embrace technological change and create an environment which supports the development of digital solutions which make a difference to people’s lives. This unique event will bring together key stakeholders from across local government to explore the ‘art of the possible’ offered by new technologies.

Hosted by Scotland Excel and the Digital Office, and supported by leading technology company DXC, this event aims to challenge thinking about digital technologies.

As well as hearing from keynote speakers, delegates will take part in interactive sessions which explore the power of new technologies in three key areas and discuss their application in a local government environment:

Business Insights
How information from multiple sources can be brought together in real-time to support short-term tactical responses and long-term strategic decision making to increase efficiency and improve service delivery.

Digital Accounts
How a citizen’s identity can be verified remotely, in a secure online environment, enabling councils to improve the efficiency of their processes and provide convenient access to services for citizens who are unable to attend appointments in person.

Case Workers
How the effectiveness and efficiency of mobile staff working with citizens in the community, can be improved through remote access to case work files and the ability to record and upload new data during visits.

DXC will also be hosting a Digital Transformation Centre which can help delegates visualise and accelerate their organisation’s digital transformation journey.
