Building the Smarter State podcast series in partnership with KPMG - Data-Enabled Smarter State
In the lead up to techUK’s flagship public sector conference Building the Smarter State, we are pleased to partner with KPMG to deliver a series of podcasts looking at key enablers of the smarter state. We all want to see a smarter state, for the benefit of both public service efficiency itself and to deliver a better experience to citizens – but there are some critical blockers to this. Listen to the first in the series of podcasts on Legacy IT here and the second on bridging the digital skills gap.
In the latest podcast, Charles Baird, Chief Data Architect, Office for National Statistics and Adrian Harvey, Partner, Data Analytics, KPMG join Georgina Maratheftis, techUK's Associate Director for Local Public Services to talk about effective data sharing and standards in a smarter state.
Listen to the conversation to hear practical ways and insights into how government and industry can better collaborate to ensure data is at the heart of a smarter state.
Help shape the future of the smarter state by attending the annual Building the Smarter State conference on the 27 September!

Through blogs and case studies techUK members and stakeholders explore the innovation and impact within the smarter state. Each day has a different theme and we will discover how the technologies of today and tomorrow are transforming some of the most pressing challenges our society and public sector organisations face such as Legacy IT and Skills.
