Knowledge is the engine of our economy and data is its fuel. However, our survey identified that only 20% or local authorities in Scotland are effectively using their data for better insight.

In our report – Dialling Scotland in for digital success – we examine why Scotland needs to redefine its relationship with data to help unlock the insight and knowledge required to succeed in our digital world.

There’s a real drive to reform our public services in Scotland. You can see it already in the creation of Police Scotland and the integration of health and social care, and new powers provide us with an amazing opportunity to do things differently."
Colin Cook, Director Digital, Scottish Government
