What’s now and what’s next for public sector digital and data

A huge thank you to all the speakers, delegates, sponsors and exhibitors who attended PublicTechnology Live 2024 on 21st May, and made it such a success.

This year’s PublicTechnology Live focused on how public bodies can use digital platforms and data to meet the major challenges – and rise to the significant opportunities – they currently face. We looked into how the sector is preparing for a future where emerging technologies such as generative AI and the Internet of Everything could profoundly change how every organisation operates.

Watch the highlights video from the 2024 event.

With over 20 speakers including two permanent secretaries, two second permanent secretaries , a CEO, two CTOs and the newly-appointed Chief Strategy Officer for CDDO the conference delivered high-quality, strategy-led content.

There were also fascinating sessions from local government leaders, representation from the Scottish Government and plenty of industry expertise provided by our sponsoring organisations.

On-stage presentations and discussions, workshops and interactive sessions offered the chance to examine the practicalities of transformation, including:

  • balancing budgets
  • ensuring effective procurement
  • the need for senior leadership buy-in
  • how to make space for the most innovative people, processes and platforms.
