Data underpins decision making across the public sector – but decisions are only as good as the skills with which they are analysed. And with data skills in short supply how can we ensure that all parts of the public sector can harness the data with which they work?

The latest data analytics tools are now offering a ‘low-code’, ‘drag and drop’ approach to harnessing this intelligence – and even automating the process to provide constant streams of accurate, up to date data. In this UKA Live discussion, the panel discussed how to unlock data using these technologies.
