Local authorities need to improve data analysis capabilities, survey says (Infographic)

Three quarters of local authorities believe their data analysis capabilities will not be fit for purpose 18 months from now

Three quarters of local authorities believe their data analysis capabilities will not be fit for purpose 18 months from now, a new survey has revealed.

The Phoenix Software survey asked 100 IT leaders in local government across the UK how well equipped they were with regards to data storage and analysis, mobility and the delivery of information and services to citizens – all key aspects of technology that underpin a successful modernisation strategy.

While controlling data flow across the organisation is a top challenge for 36% of those surveyed, many would like to see a strategic change in their organisation (51%) when it comes to managing citizen data. This may be why 28% don’t believe their organisation is ready for impending data regulation laws that will be introduced when GDPR becomes a reality.

Further findings from the survey, which can be downloaded in full here, have been outlined in this handy infographic:
