UKAuthority Digital Transformation - Wales and Scotland 2017



Transforming the business of public service delivery

28 March 2017 - Principality Stadium, Cardiff

30 March 2017 - Hampden Park, Glasgow

The public sector needs to bring together technology, people and processes to deliver services effectively and efficiently in this harsh financial climate - doing 'more for less' is a fact of life, and technology a tool to be used.

Citizen demands are as intense as ever, and growing. And leaders know that they have to push through radical organisational and digital change in order for their organisations to meet this challenge. 

Join us on either the 28th or 30th of March to explore how you can get the most from your existing platforms and hear about the near future from trailblazers and specialists on the ground, industry visionaries and thought leaders in a mix of presentations, open panel sessions, live demonstrations and showcases. Sessions include:
