You will find our workshop: ‘The Value of Data in Government’ in Studio 2: 14:30 -15:30

The Data Revolution is here! The total amount of data being captured and stored by industries doubles every 1.2 years. The ever-increasing volume, velocity and variety of data, or ‘Big Data’ – has been widely embraced by the Private Sector; utilising their data sources in order to maximise the associated benefits for analysis and enhanced decision making.

“The Value of Data in Government” workshop will examine how Government bodies can build on the concept of Big Data, and redefine it as ‘Valuable Data’; utilising joined up thinking between organisations to make more efficient use of the data available to them. Pulling from relevant scenarios in both the Private and Public Sectors, the workshop will explore practical examples of how Valuable Data can be utilised within Government.

In 2014, The Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO) commissioned the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) to undertake a project that would act as a demonstrator of the possibilities and benefits of sharing compliance and risk data across government. During our workshop, Joe Januszewski, Data Scientist from the Health and Safety Laboratory will provide an overview of the project, the outcomes, and examine his recommendations on what could be achieved next.
