National Data Strategy-Turning ambition into reality

Envisaging a transformation in the Civil Service’s use of data, the Strategy gives every government body a host of new responsibilities and objectives.

In this report, Mark Humphries Head of BI & Analytics Consultancy at Civica scouts the tasks facing civil servants, and maps out a route around the obstacles in their way. The paper addresses:

  • Why data is the linchpin for delivering digitally enabled public services of the future
  • How COVID-19 has transformed civil servants’ views of the data agenda
  • The need for action to develop the capabilities of data-related staff across government
  • How to lay strong foundations for good data quality
  • The importance of thinking big and starting small.

We’re at a moment in time where people right across government realise that we need multiple departments engaged in addressing the big questions. “
