Webinar Series Overview

Local and regional government in the UK faces ever increasing pressures from challenges as diverse as climate change, planning, housing, and citizen engagement. Budgets are also under pressure, with traditional income streams disrupted by the pandemic and the societal changes that have precipitated from it.

To rise to the challenge, councils and regions are increasingly implementing digital transformation programmes, by applying the latest disruptive technology available; not just automating existing processes but taking the opportunity to completely rethink how to deliver services more efficiently to public benefit.

A key part of many of these transformative initiatives is location intelligence, primarily because almost everything that government does is rooted in, affected by, and applies to specific geographic areas. If government is going to create places that people are proud of and want to live and work in, then data-driven decisions based on the realities of each locality are essential.

Citizen engagement and community functions, for example elections, housing, education and leisure are an important part of local and regional government. Communities are geographical in nature – location and a sense of place are at the heart of community identity. Location Intelligence solutions delivered using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) technology are increasingly transforming how councils meet community needs and deliver democracy in action. Hear how our customers are putting this into practice.
