How to create a scalable big data strategy to ensure successful programme delivery
When embarking on a big data implementation, it’s a given that most organisations look to build scalable, effective big data programmes to quickly generate business value, while minimising risks and a disjointed approach. So, how can this be achieved? The key to success comes with many considerations, which we will address in this session.
Measuring and understanding current big data assets and highlighting where the gaps are
Prioritising objectives, balancing competing imperatives and thinking through architecture and infrastructure within the broader context of business goals
Identifying and assembling the right big data tools and technologies to create a foundation that will scale and increase value over time
Maintaining and managing big data platforms and applications to ensure ongoing improvement
Investing in development to utilizse big data for better business decisions
The press often talk about big data as the reserve of companies like Google and Microsoft. London Borough of Islington has transformed the way we look at information held about children and families, by joining over 50 datasets from across and beyond the Council into a single place, starting from the birth of a child. The solution creates a single ‘golden record’ for every Islington resident using the best available source, bringing together family records for the household and services they are known to.
Creating an integrated data hub to take an innovative approach to analytics, understanding practice and service delivery
Better understanding the journey of the child
Identifying vulnerable children and families in need of early help
Targeting resources more effectively, and conducting needs assessment and to plan services
Lauren and Laura will answer questions from the audience as part of the Big Data panel discussion that follows.

Tools and communities – the resources we’re using to help build service design capability in government
Most of Government is involved in designing, building and running public services. That means most of government is involved in service design, most of the time. But how much do you know about the support that you can get from GDS to design great services?
Come to this talk to find out about the range of tools, guidance, advice and data GDS offers to help departments design better services, and learn about our plans for the future.
How we’re making GOV.UK work harder for users – our roadmap for 2017/18
GOV.UK is GDS’s most mature digital product. We launched in beta at the beginning of 2012. By May 2013, all government departments had migrated to GOV.UK. This means we’ve been the central publishing platform for all of government for nearly 4 years.
In that time, we’ve learned a lot about how government publishing works. We’ve worked closely with departments. And, we’ve now got the vast majority of government’s content on to GOV.UK.
Hear how we’re achieving our next goal – to make the single domain work harder for users.
Accessibility means making things open to everyone. It means ensuring that there are no barriers that might prevent someone from using something.
So what does this mean for the people building and operating our public services?
Join our session to find out what accessibility is, why it matters and what it means for you.

Open Standards save us money and time. They reduce complexity for citizens, and create opportunities for SMEs. Find out why we love them - and how you can get involved.
You will learn about how they contribute to efficient, open ways of working so you can harness their technology to design and improve public service information and transactions.
How we’re using data science to make better decisions
Data science is the meeting of programming, statistics and subject expertise. It has huge potential to transform the way government works by helping us to interpret large data sets. Come along to find out how we’ve been using data science to make better decisions and improve government services.
