Digital Transformation in Welsh Policing – Round Table


Harness the power of your data: Empower your force to do more.

Your force will already have a vast array of diverse data across your organisation. If harnessed in the right way, your data could speed up reporting, facilitate better decision making, and help shape the future of UK policing. This presents a huge opportunity for you to leverage the right technology. With the best tools at your fingertips, your force can spend less time in the office and more time on the streets keeping your community safe.

But for many forces, often the biggest question is where to begin?

Join Simpson Associates and Microsoft for a focused round table specifically for the 4 Police Forces within Wales on Thursday 20th May at 12-1pm. During this we’ll discuss some of the common data challenges faced by UK Police Forces and how we can help you on your digital transformation journey.

The round table is an opportunity to bring all 4 Welsh police forces together to discuss your challenges, and enables Simpson Associates and Microsoft to outline how we’re working with other UK Police forces on their data transformation journey.

During the round table you will hear about:

  • The Microsoft Data Strategy for Policing – Ryan Lewis, National Technology Strategist for Wales, Microsoft.
  • Simpson Associates in Policing – Understand how Simpson Associate are helping other forces on their data and analytics journeys, with some case study examples, including how Derbyshire Constabulary are using tools like Power BI to gain valuable insight and saving time through self-service – Dave Kerby, Data & AI Solution Lead, Police Team, Simpson Associates.
  • Power BI Demo

Solutions designed with police forces in mind.

“Thanks to our work in partnership with Simpson Associates, we were able to become one of the first Police Forces in the UK to use Microsoft Azure for our data analytics.  Using tools like Azure Data Factory to orchestrate the movement of data between our on-premise systems and the cloud, as well as Azure SQL DB to store the data in a safe and secure manner. Simpson Associates have really helped to accelerate Derbyshire Constabulary’s data analytics journey.”
