Digital transformation can simplify and make processes more efficient, enabling local authorities and the public sector to assist citizens and those most vulnerable in society better.

In the UK Government’s Digital Strategy there is focus on “Digital Government’, encouraging the public sector to improve its service delivery by optimising its use of technology, user interaction and data.

This is part of the overall UK Government’s commitment to position the UK as a ‘world-leading digital economy that works for everyone’.

However, at present the public sector is facing difficulties with successfully progressing with their digital transformations due to legacy software, restrictions on data sharing and organisational work practices.

As such it becomes increasingly important to consider how to advance digital transformation in an economy that is financially restricted and where there are an ever-increasing pressure and reliance on local authorities (as well as other public sector bodies).

Here at Trilateral Research, we provide the public sector with a suite of consultancy services that combine technical and social science, supporting in understanding needs, gaps and ultimately in helping public sector bodies progress along their journey.

We support them in ‘unlocking the power of data in the UK economy and improving public confidence in its use’.

We don’t simply provide technical solutions; we provide data science, social science and legal expertise to ensure a responsible approach to research and innovation.
