INTERNATIONAL KEYNOTE ADDRESS: The path towards successful digital transformation
Belgium is a small country with a complicated political and government system comprising the federal government, regional governments and community councils. Despite this, a successful digital strategy has been implemented. Drawing on this experience, Eddy discusses the essential elements for success in driving a digital strategy for a multi-layered government.

COUNTRY CASE STUDY: The Scottish government’s approach to digital transformation
The last decade has focussed on modernising government, efficient government and digital transformation from supporting the McClelland Review of Public Sector ICT in 2011, through to the new digital strategy published in March 2017. The approach in Scotland is one of co-design and production working closely with the digital technologies industry on innovation, skills, economic growth and societal change recognising the contribution that public services can make to Scotland’s ambitions.

CASE STUDY: OSi, the national mapping agency
OSi has a mandate to create and maintain the definitive national mapping and related geographic records. In order to design and build a secure saleable system for publishing and sharing this complex data to the public and private sectors the agency faced a number of challenges including dealing with the explosion of geospatial data sources and automating complex workflow and processes. Eamonn talks us through how these challenges were overcome.
