Supporting Government’s data approach

We’ve been helping governments navigate the digital economy for decades. So as the sector harnesses the data economy, it makes sense to partner with a platform that is designed for exchanging ideas and sharing insight to enable governments to make informed decisions and succeed in this data driven AI world that we live in.

We’ve got a number of strong connections with Think Digital Partners (TDP). Firstly our Non-Exec Director Jess Figueras has been the host to a number of the Think Digital events – across Cyber Security, Data and Digital Identity – for years. You’ll find her chairing panel sessions and interviewing experts on a range of topics, using her strategic and analytical experience to bring to bear the key issues and trends across digital trust, cyber security and governance, and the role of technology in civil society.

Our Chair, Julia Glidden met Matt Stanley, the founder of Think Digital Partners formed when she was running IBM’s Global Government business and his great thought leadership on social media caught her eye.  At the time, Matt was just a Twitter handle.  Years of exchanging fun thoughts on the future of Public Sector transformation, however, eventually translated into a fast and furious real life friendship – especially after Matt reached out after Julia’s mother died at the height of Covid and interviewed her for the Think Digital’s Women in Digital series.  The interview went on to become one of Think Digital’s most read ever.

You can see Julia speak at the Data for Government event on Wednesday 17 May as she joins John Kelly, Chief Data Officer from HM Treasury, to discuss The Future of Data Policy. A must watch for those involved or interested in the topic of data and AI policy.

And finally James Herbert, our CEO made an appearance at the Cyber Security for Government in April discussing how organisations can use data to predict and detect cyber attacks. Much of the debate focussed on the importance of data sitting at the heart of an organisation with cyber data as a subset – rather than it sitting on the sidelines. John Keegan, Deputy Director and Head of Digital Security at Department for Work and Pensions and Chris Crowther, Chief Information Officer at Spectra Analytics wholeheartedly agreed.

So given our founders’ experience of working for and with governments across digital, it was clear that supporting Think Digital’s purpose was a no brainer for Pivotl. It’s another way that we can get closer to our clients’ often complex data problems and seize the opportunities data can bring.

Check out the future events list and hopefully we’ll see you at one of their forthcoming events.
