Public sector digital trends 2022

In partnership with LOLA and MCE

Distinctive in its focus on ‘place-shaping’ – meaningful outcomes for people, communities, and their environments enabled by effective public services delivered locally – our digital trends policy briefing takes a slightly different slant this year.

Our briefing is heavily influenced by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. But it goes further, identifying key trends that lie in the spaces between different technologies and how these will affect the public sector. We predict, for example, a much greater focus on interoperability, systems integration, and exploitation of opportunities arising from a growth in processing power, coupled with harnessing data volumes and new tools.
