Wigan’s Data Analytics Journey – Transforming Data to Insight

A Session by Gemma Bathurst Whittle and Jeanette Rycroft

About this Session

Like many public sector organisations, legacy systems can often mean a lot of time is spent organising data before it can be used to provide the critical insight needed to plan services. Wigan Council’s Data Strategy is therefore rooted on a vision that puts data at the heart of everything we do to ensure the best decisions are made for our residents. A key component of this is to tip the balance of time spent on preparing data, to more time spent analysing data to provide key insight to underpin decisions, which is more important than ever in the current financial climate. To create a culture of data underpinning everything we do, we took an ‘analytics for all’ approach which opened up the opportunity to take the whole organisation on the data analytics journey… not just the analytics team.
