MCSA will be exhibiting at this year’s Socitm Scotland Annual Conference on 3rd November at Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh.

The Socitm Scotland Annual Conference is an unrivalled gathering of ICT professionals from across Scotland’s public services. Since its launch, Socitm Scotland has established itself as the natural choice for delegates and speakers looking to engage with digital leaders from councils, the NHS, emergency services and third sector.

Digital technology and the internet are influencing the life of Scotland’s citizens on a daily basis with smart phones, online shopping, internet banking, wearables and many more developments.

With the increasing digitisation of our economy, workplaces and private lives, Scotland is certainly heading towards a digital future. How can Scotland’s public sector make sure it is not only part of this future but also shapes it? What can the public sector do to enable all people in Scotland to take full advantage of digital opportunities and to be involved in in the digital future?

The Socitm Scotland 2016 Annual Conference will explore how public sector organisations can develop the digital skills of their own staff and attract new talent but also play their role in encouraging more young people to choose a digital career. We will discuss the importance of a broad digital participation for Scotland’s society and examine social and demographic obstacles for digital inclusion. Finally, the importance of digital leadership for realising the ambitions for a digital public service and society will be discussed.
