Panelists from UKCloud and the Social Value Business
As a partner of UKCloud, you likely not only share our technology vision and commitment to public sector, but also a belief in the role technology can play in addressing broader societal challenges. These common values are integral to how we work and achieve success together. To further strengthen our partnership, UKCloud have teamed up with the Social Value Business to create a Social Value Charter. We believe the pledges within the charter are not just the right thing to do but make strong business sense. All UKCloud partners are invited to this workshop in which we will:
1. Launch UKCloud’s Social Value Charter and the rationale for doing so
2. Detail the Social Value Act and the new measures (Social Value Model) introduced from January 2021 and their significance
3. Discuss the numerous activities partners can undertake to align with UKCloud’s Social Value Charter as well as what other companies are doing outside of the tech industry
4. Detail how our partners can achieve a Social Value Quality Mark (SVQM) should they wish to enhance their Social Value credentials
In order to reveal insights from data, organisations historically had to share, move or pool data. Multiple regulatory, security and privacy barriers meant that organisations could not access the knowledge present in their data or in the data of other organisations they work with. Advances in technology have changed this. Data can now be available for analytics while remaining under the control of the data holder. This talk explores how next generation technologies such as privacy enhancing techniques and federated learning enable organisations to get the insight they need from their data and from other organisations’ data without ever sharing the data through a complete solution that can be tailored to their security, privacy, data compliance and data governance requirements.
Mark Humphries, Head of BI & Analytics Consultancy @ Civica.
A robust and resilient data foundation can only be achieved by doing the basics right. Join Mark Humphries, Head of BI and Analytics Consultancy and Chair of DAMA UK, as he discusses the importance of governance and architecture, data collaboration and how improving the data literacy levels amongst key decision makers has led to improved outcomes and better results for Civica’s public sector partners.
Jason Durk, Head of Transport and Matt Pierce, Head of Cloud, Managed Services and DevOps at CACI
Digitalisation of the transport sector has inspired smart uses of data to improve infrastructure management, operational resilience and overall customer experience. Join CACI’s Jason Durk, Head of Transport and Matt Pierce, Head of Cloud, Managed Services and DevOps as they explore how digitalisation is helping to overcome the challenges faced in the transport sector, by a growing economy and increasing passenger numbers, as well as reflecting on how data can assist in getting passengers safely back onto public transport post-COVID.
Shaun Collings, Pure UK Public Sector Regional Business Director
Digital transformation programmes can focus predominantly on replacing older processes, workflows and technologies with newer ones. However, the data that inputs to these new digital processes and technologies is the essential component. Important then that decisions on the future state of legacy architectures (both infrastructure and data) are modernised and multi cloud approaches are adopted in the light of requirements around data sovereignty and residency. This talk explores the areas that need to be considered to allow the transformative potential of data to be harnessed.
Leighton James (UKCloud), Chris Feltham (Intel), Gavin Lloyd (Cisco), Adam Poole (Digital Reef)
The unprecedented events of the last 12 months have led organisations in the public sector to appreciate the real value of the data they hold, and its vital role in allowing them to deliver services to an increasingly expectant and demanding public. But, while there is optimism around the ability of organisations to explore new technologies that will unlock the value of data, as well as confidence in the skills of their employees to maximise the opportunities it offers for innovation, the reality seems to be that the tools aren’t yet in place to enable this.
Join Leighton James, CTO @ UKCloud as well as Chris Feltham from Intel, Gavin Lloyd from Cisco, and Digital Reef as they discuss the key findings from the survey report and share their thoughts and insights on the road ahead for Data.

As digital maturity increases across UK public sector, organisations are looking to leverage the cost and agility benefits of cloud native services. As such, they are looking to maximise the portability of their applications and services to ensure workloads are hosted in the most appropriate place, without sacrificing the experience to both developers and the end-user. In this session, we will explore how Red Hat OpenShift can assist organisations meet this requirement whilst also increasing rapid application deployment and accelerating digital/cloud native transformation.
Monitoring your IT estate has never been so crucial. The risks of not having the right digital foundations and infrastructure in place can lead to vulnerabilities from increased security risks and reduced availability of critical systems. Some of these challenges have been recently highlighted by the Solarwinds breach. Join Steve Lawrence, CGO at UKCloud as he welcomes Moogsoft and Opsview to discuss the importance of visibility across your IT estate.
