UK Smart Government 2019 Data-Driven Transformation

Modern governments across Europe must orchestrate an evolving array of services and functions required to support millions of people, often with a pressure to “do more with less” and under the glare of public scrutiny. The pressure to harness technology to transform is as evident in government as it is in any modern organisation, although the complexity and reach of government is arguably more significant. Ongoing uncertainties around Brexit are likely adding to the challenge of transforming operational models and efficiency. Following “ ...more

The Critical Role of Surge Protection and Power Distribution in Protecting 5G mmWave Small Cell Networks

5G small cell sites typically consist of existing poles with attached concealed radio equipment and antennas, or more integrated poles packed with expensive electronic hardware. These densely packed nodes are increasingly susceptible to damage from overvoltage surges and transients, especially conducted disturbances through cables and radiated disturbances, from nearby events like lightning discharges. Since 5G networks will operate over large numbers of small cell sites, carriers, tower companies and A&E firms must make sure each site inte ...more

UK Smart Government 2019 Data-Driven Transformation - Research Report

Transitioning to citizen-centric service delivery, Brexit planning, implementing new digital services and adopting an evidence-based policy development are all transformational undertakings for the UK government and its departments. Thankfully, they all have one critical success factor in common: data. It is the fuel of digital transformation and without fast, always-on access to data, everything will stall.

Taking the next steps towards Data-Drieven Government: Your roadmap to digital transformation 2.0

The first and most obvious phase of digital transformation, the digitalisation of services, has been a significant success and is ongoing. A truly smart government that is capable of delivering citizen centricity, is eminently achievable, as long as data can be architected in a way that makes it instantly available to all frontline decision-makers, data scientists, policy strategists and application developers. This next phase of data-driven government could stall unless investment is made in the kind of infrastructure that is designed with ...more

Smart Government 2019: Data-Driven Transformation in Europe

Using Location Data to Understand the Offline Impacts of Online Efforts

Using location-based marketing to drive foot traffic to stores is one of the smartest strategies advertisers can employ today, but it’s coupled with a conundrum: How will they determine if their money was well spent? Traditional metrics like click-through and conversion rates may be useful for measuring the online effectiveness of digital media campaigns, but they fall short when the goal is understanding offline impacts. Data scientists are beginning to connect the dots between data systems to map out a customer’s movements throughout the d ...more
