Many governments have identified improved use of data as key to better public services. The UK government’s Declaration on Government Reform – which aims to harness innovations from the coronavirus pandemic into day-to-day policy making – highlighted the need to “put data at the heart of our decision-making, learning explicitly from the approach we have taken in responding to COVID-19”. Innovations include a presumption in favour of openness, a requirement to share data across departments, data inventories to ensure government knows what data exists, where it is stored, and how it can be accessed, and increased use of data visualisation to help ministers and officials understand in real time the latest evidence underpinning decisions.
Hosted by Simon Case, Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Civil Service, Public Service Data Live brings together UK civil servants to focus on the better use of data. Sharing insights, experience and specific examples, this annual gathering will stimulate debate and provide practical advice and skills to improve how data is used across government.
At its heart, Public Service Data Live is designed to support your objectives and help strengthen the data community.
Public Service Data Live is free to attend for public servants from all over the world who are involved in transforming, digitising and accelerating their organisations and services.
