The pandemic highlighted the massive untapped potential in the way the public sector use and share data. Clear messages came from the Digital Nation consultation, carried out in conjunction with Scotland IS in Summer 2020, which were echoed in the recent Digital Strategy (A changing nation: how Scotland will thrive in a digital world – gov.scot) that to succeed, to be data driven, we need a whole-public sector approach that ensures adoption of standards to drive value and insights from data.
With the focus on data standards, the Technical Data Policy team in Scottish Government have been researching data maturity and developing a Data Transformation Framework.
Data Transformation is the journey towards improvement and increased capability in using data and aims to support organisations in understanding not only where they are currently, in terms of data management and use, but how they can improve this getting more value from their data. The Framework aims to set out what ‘good data’ looks like and the practicable steps organisations can take to improve.
This event will provide an update on the work done so far on data standards, data maturity and the Data Transformation Framework along with our future plans.
We are seeking feedback on this work, as well approaches to alignment and support from the ScotlandIS Data Cluster.
We would also like to get specific views on:
- What capabilities are available from industry to help public bodies increase their use of data standards, improve data maturity and implement the Data Transformation Framework?
- How industry can support the changes we are seeking to achieve?
How can we encourage companies to engage with public procurements in this area?
