Scotland needs to prosper in an increasingly connected and competitive world.  This demands that we look outwards, and work together to challenge old ways of thinking on how we deliver inclusive economic growth, reform our public services and prepare our children for the workplace of the future. We need to work together in partnership to achieve this to put digital at the heart of everything we do.  Digital isn’t optional – we need to make sure that everyone is on board.
