This is above Adult Social Care for the first time in at least three years, suggesting that councils are no longer able to shield these services from the worst of the ongoing budget cuts in local government.</p> <p>As such, <a href="https://www.techuk.org/events/roundtable/item/12792-techuk-lgiu-roundtable-harnessing-digital-to-improve-children-s-services-outcomes">techUK held a roundtable with LGiU</a> in spring 2018 to explore how digital can re-imagine the future of Children&rsquo;s Services as well as support service redesign now (find out what was discussed on the <a href="https://www.techuk.org/insights/meeting-notes/item/13288-harnessing-digital-to-improve-children-s-services-outcomes">techUK blog</a> and <a href="https://www.lgiu.org.uk/2018/05/31/lgiu-fortnightly-31st-may-helping-kids-by-using-tech-saving-a-giant-shark-other-stories/">LGiU podcast</a>). One of the asks from the session was to hold an interactive problem-led workshop where councils and industry could work together to interrogate the challenges facing children services in more detail and come up with innovative solutions. We are delighted to hold a joint workshop on 10 January at techUK bringing together our two communities to understand the role digital can play in improving outcomes for children and young people.</p> <p><strong>What will the day entail&hellip;</strong></p> <p>It will be an interactive session with delegates working in groups reviewing challenges that cut across key areas of Children&rsquo;s Services provision from collaboration to family support. Attendees will review the problem statements and together explore potential solutions and what new products and services to help manage demand on children services and support prevention strategies.</p> <p>We look forward to hearing from attendees on the day about their innovations and will use the outcome of the session to inform future activity in this area. We will be circulating the problem statements in advance of the session so attendees will have enough time to review and come prepared with their ideas.</p> <p>This event is open to local government, public sector agencies involved in children and family services as well as techUK members.</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:georgina.maratheftis@techuk.org">georgina.maratheftis@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14387-cyber-security-market-engagement-event-follow-up Cyber security market engagement event – follow up http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14387-cyber-security-market-engagement-event-follow-up Thu, 29 Nov 2018 13:12:04 +0000 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org You are invited to join the NHS Data Security Centre team for a market engagement day <p>You are invited to join our NHS Digital Data Security Centre team for a market engagement day.&nbsp; At our October event, we briefed you on our approach to the perimeter security project initiation.&nbsp; After reviewing the feedback, we have carried out detailed scoping, requirements and design principles and we would like to present our findings.</p> <p><strong>TIME: 10:00 &ndash; 11:00 for an interactive briefing, followed by 1-2-1&rsquo;s with identified suppliers 12:00 &ndash; 16:00</strong></p> <p>The event will comprise of a one-hour interactive briefing, (where we will walk you through the briefing pack slides and you will have the opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions), followed by 1-2-1 sessions with a smaller number of suppliers.</p> <p>The briefing session is open to all suppliers however, to request a 1-2-1 session, suppliers are required to download the briefing pack and complete a small number of qualifying questions &ndash; please see links below.</p> <p>The deadline for the questions to be submitted is midnight on Wednesday 12 December 2018.&nbsp; Responses will be reviewed and the suppliers that meet the criteria will receive an invite and a further vendor briefing pack.&nbsp; This pack contains additional questions to be discussed during your slot.</p> <p>Registration for the event can be found <a href="https://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14387-cyber-security-market-engagement-event-follow-up">here.</a></p> <p>Further information about the event and to download the briefing pack can be found <a href="https://www.industrybriefings.co.uk/EVENTS/cyber_event/home">here.</a></p> <p>Registration for the 1-2-1 sessions (i.e. the qualifying questions) can be found <a href="https://www.nhsdigitalevents.co.uk/feedback5">here.</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Also, please note the venue details:</p> <p><strong>Date: Thursday 10 January 2019, 10am 4pm</strong></p> <p><strong>Venue: </strong><strong>MSE Meeting rooms, 103A Oxford Street, Soho, London, W1D 2HG</strong></p> http://www.techuk.org/events/meeting/item/14305-techuk-ukspace-positioning-navigation-timing-committee techUK/UKspace Positioning, Navigation & Timing Committee http://www.techuk.org/events/meeting/item/14305-techuk-ukspace-positioning-navigation-timing-committee Mon, 12 Nov 2018 16:06:06 +0000 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Quarterly meeting of the PNTC, following the 18th September meeting <p>This meeting is open to members of techUK or UKspace who are actively working in&nbsp;Positioning,&nbsp;Timing&nbsp;and&nbsp;Navigation&nbsp;industries.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Chair: Richard Bowden, QinetiQ.</p> <p>Deputy Chair: Mark Dumville, Nottingham Scientific</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Agenda tbc</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>A sandwich lunch will be available from 13:00</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:julian.mcgougan@techuk.org">julian.mcgougan@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14241-navigating-global-data-governance Navigating Global Data Governance http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14241-navigating-global-data-governance Tue, 30 Oct 2018 09:49:57 +0000 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org How data governance is managed in companies that operate in a global contex <p>A techUK briefing on how data governance is managed in companies that operate in a global context.

In many developing countries mobile is the standard way to get online, which has resulted in innovation in services encompassing banking, payments and even <em>&ldquo;Uber for the farm&rdquo; </em>initiatives such as <a href="https://www.hellotractor.com/">Hello Tractor</a>. In the UK, outside of offices and academia, the vast majority of internet access is via either Wi-Fi or a mobile connection &ndash; and we&rsquo;re not going back to plugging in Ethernet cables if we can help it.</p> <p>So it&rsquo;s essential to ensure that 5G, which offers so much more than just faster 4G, will be made available to as many consumers, and as quickly, as practical. But mobile operators face a challenging business case for investing in 5G, that investment encompassing spectrum, deployment of fibre (80% of the costs for which will be civil works), subsidising 5G handsets (none of which are yet available) and, of course, the equipment to install on base stations. Operators face the challenge of investing in this new technology in dense urban areas whilst completing 4G coverage in rural areas.</p> <p>For the 4 UK mobile operators, each of which is part of an international group, the relatively low returns made in the UK make reducing costs essential to maximise deployment here of additional spectrum and technology upgrades. The operators increasingly share their own infrastructure through joint ventures, and there is a long history of independent infrastructure providers investing in sites to share with as many mobile (and, in some cases, other wireless) operators as wish to locate there.</p> <p>Such infrastructure sharing is often referred to as &ldquo;neutral host&rdquo;. Neutral host infrastructure comprises a single, shared network solution provided on an open access basis to all mobile operators and is used to resolve poor wireless coverage and capacity inside large venues or other busy locations. They are usually deployed, maintained and operated by a third-party providers and they are designed to support the full range of cellular technologies (although landlord permissions may be required before new technologies could be deployed).</p> <p>Unlike vertically integrated networks that accommodate one technology or a single operator&rsquo;s requirement, neutral host infrastructure is a shared platform, capable of supporting all operators and technologies giving their customers what they are looking for - seamless coverage and high capacity.</p> <p>A variety of different neutral host approaches are used to provide premium wireless services in different environments, such as Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) and Small Cells Networks (SCN).&nbsp; Typically fibre-fed, these networks are designed specifically to cope with periods of peak user demand and scaled to accommodate future generations of technology, including 5G.</p> <p>According to EY&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>&lsquo;</em><em><a href="https://ewia.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/EU-Tower-Sector-Summary-Report.pdf">European Wireless Infrastructure Association Report</a></em><em>&rsquo;</em>, neutral host infrastructure leads to more cost efficient use of infrastructure through greater levels of sharing / utilisation, enabling operators to improve the quality of service for customers by increasing the number of available points of presence, and their network speed and capacity. Independent neutral hosts delivers up to 3x the connectivity of vertically integrated assets. Neutral host infrastructure lowers the economic threshold for new coverage by anticipating future sharing, launching with one or more &ldquo;anchor&rdquo; operators which then receive the cost benefits of sharing up-front.</p> <p>Despite the considerable sharing of passive infrastructure which the UK already has, there is always scope for operators and subscribers to reap further gains from further infrastructure sharing. One particular scenario crying out for deployment of more shared infrastructure is within buildings, which is the source of about 80% of mobile data traffic, yet modern energy-efficient building materials, combined with the higher frequencies used to offer faster connections, is making it harder for those inside to attain reliable mobile connection with external base stations.</p> <p>An additional scenario is improving transport connectivity where consumers are increasingly dissatisfied with connectivity on the Strategic Road Network, on major rail routes and on deep Tube lines. Space constraints and safety concerns argue for and public communications infrastructure deployed track- or road-side to be shared amongst all 4 mobile operators.</p> <p>To that end, the public sector has a key enabler role, to add to initiatives already undertaken by DCMS to reduce deployment costs, particularly the recent introduction of the new Electronic Communications Code (to make it easier and cheaper to deploy and maintain communications infrastructure), and the work of the Barrier Busting Team and the Local Connectivity Group, together working to reduce the regulatory obstacles to deployment (it can currently take up to 2 years for a mobile operator to get permission to deploy a base station in central London).</p> <p>With neutral host infrastructure sharing increasingly recognised as a key deployment tool for improving mobile broadband reach at the lowest cost, essential as we look ahead to the commercial deployment of 5G, this conference will explore the larger enabling role which neutral host will have in a 5G world.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Opening keynote:&nbsp; <em>21st Century networks - optimising Investment and services</em> - Dr Mike Short, Chief Scientific Adviser at the Department for International Trade.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Additional confirmed speakers from BAI Communications, DCMS, WHP Telecoms, Real Wireless and Disruptive Analysis<em>.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Agenda tbc.</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:julian.mcgougan@techuk.org">julian.mcgougan@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/partner-event/item/14325-future-land-challenges-conference Future Land Challenges Conference http://www.techuk.org/events/partner-event/item/14325-future-land-challenges-conference Thu, 15 Nov 2018 15:15:12 +0000 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Agile Warrior <p><br> The AGILE WARRIOR Future Land Challenges Conference will examine the force design implications for British Army Force Development &lsquo;Horizon 2&rsquo;, expressed as the Conceptual Force (Land) 2035.

But up to 80% of professionals feel tired, regularly.</p> <p>When we are tired, we struggle to pay attention, we can&rsquo;t retain important facts or make smart decisions. In fact, the causes of disasters like Chernobyl, Exxon Valdez and the Challenger Space Shuttle were found to stem from fatigue.</p> <p>And sleep quality has been gradually deteriorating since the adoption of the electric light, around 150 years ago.&nbsp; More so over the past 10 years, as many of us are taking our work to bed on brightly lit laptops and smartphones.</p> <p>With sleep deprivation a widespread subject that no one is talking about, we thought we&rsquo;d go a little off piste for the first Marketing and Sales session of 2019 to explore sleep and the impact it can have on performance.</p> <p>Sleep expert, <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/dancollinsteambuilder/" target="_blank">Dan Collins</a>, will guide us through the session.
