Data sharing in Government

At Scott Logic, we help government harness the power of data, and we’re proud to be supporting departments and institutions such as DWP, HM Land Registry and the Scottish Government to improve services for citizens.

As well as building innovative data platforms and designing new digital services, we work with teams across government to explore how to make sector-wide improvements in areas such as data strategy development, open source adoption, and service enhancement through data sharing.

Find out more here about some of our recent government work and explore our latest insights, including the research into data sharing during the pandemic on which we were proud to partner with the Institute for Government (IfG).

Watch: Data Strategy is not a Technology problem

Principal Consultant Peter Chamberlin explains why you can't procure your way to a great data strategy, and encourages you to think differently – focusing on the value you want to create, rather than the technology you think you need to buy. This was the keynote talk from Why you can't buy a good data strategy off the shelf, an event on which we worked in partnership with the National Innovation Centre for Data.
