Police ICT Summit

We are delighted to sponsor the Police ICT Summit.

UK policing is under the microscope. Rising demand and budget restraints have forced UK Police forces to evolve but questions remain as to whether policing has yet fully adapted to address the profound and continuing shifts in patterns of crime, society, policy and technology.

Technology provides part of the solution enabling forces to free up capacity to tackle their tactical priorities, reduce costs and improve detection rates. In our workshop we explore the move from RPA to intelligent automation which will help UK Police Forces to continue their technology-enabled transformation.

Here are some insights on policing and technology based on client work, surveys and experience.

Policing 4.0: Deciding the Future of Policing in the UK

Rising demand and budget restraints have forced UK Police forces to evolve but questions remain as to whether policing has yet fully adapted to address the profound and continuing shifts in patterns of crime, society, policy and technology. This report explores the challenges facing policing today and the powerful trends and forces that will influence crime and policing over the coming decades.

The new machinery government

In this environment of unprecedented budgetary pressures and rising demand on public services, where more is increasingly demanded from less, advances in robotics have made automation a viable and innovative way to address the challenges facing the Public Sector today.

The robots are waiting

The benefits of automation are now better understood with demonstrable and measurable results, and the value of automation lies in its ability to achieve benefits from augmenting as well as replacing human effort. However, despite all of this organisations are still struggling to scale robotic process automation, rising by only 1% to 4% in the last 12 months.

Digital Disruption Index

The pace of technological change is accelerating. In less than 12 months since we published the last Digital Disruption Index, we have witnessed significant shifts in investment in new technologies, with the likes of artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, and blockchain gathering momentum. However, in the rush to keep up, our findings reveal many organisations are yet to develop a coherent strategy for investing in these digital technologies.
