Is your organisation getting best value from its data assets?

Data is foundational to create a modern, thriving democracy with public services that are fit for purpose. But there are real difficulties: budgets are challenging, and finances have been cut to the bone. This often means that, within a council, any services or functionality that isn’t understood, can often be side-lined or even discarded when, in fact, it may make all the difference to robust decision-making.

A new report shows that widespread adoption and use of address and street data in local authorities and other public sector organisations could generate £384m savings in local government alone over 2022-26 - with an enhanced return on investment of 6:1.

Is your organisation delivering the true value of its data? Does it have a consistent, joined up evidence base across place to underpin decision making? Does it use a standard ‘golden thread’ to weave data together around people and places?

Join us on 7th October at 11:00 to explore how using the common standards of unique property reference numbers (UPRNs) and unique street reference numbers (USRNs) enables disparate data sets to be linked across and between organisations - revealing insights that can not only improve services but also uncover opportunities for savings. The panel will outline the evidence and give tips on how your authority can make savings in the following areas (the amounts are the discounted benefits for local government as a whole):

  • Highways asset management - £190.7 million
  • Waste management - £180 million
  • Customer relationship management - £177.9 million
  • Non-domestic rates - £74.9 million
  • Data integration - £171 million
  • Adult social care - £9.8 million
