How can data help the public sector? - National Innovation Centre for Data

On this week’s episode of Public Sector Voices, Emily is joined by the Director of National Innovation Centre for Data, Steve Caughey, to highlight the potential of using data to it’s full potential within the public sector and beyond.

At less than two years old, the centre is at the start of its journey to equip the public and private sector with the skills needed to harness the unlimited power of data.

With just under half of Europe’s organisations currently struggling to fill data analytics roles - which incidentally are handsomely paid - Steve explains how we are a long way from being able to satisfy the demand.

Steve warns of the dangers of outsourcing your data, saying that ‘outsourcing your data is the same thing as outsourcing your innovation’ and if you take a look at the world today, we need innovation now more than ever.

With real examples of using data to make the lives of the people better, the podcast is there for people who know all there is to know about data, and those who don’t.

Particular emphasis is put on the potential of using data on the interface between health and social care, to create a more integrated and efficient service. Not one to be missed.
