Urban Data Platform: Transforming Croydon Through Data – Connected Space
Posted on 3rd April, 2018
The Urban Data Platform was launched with Croydon Council in March 2018, in cooperation with technology company Connected Space.
The solution was co-created: blending local government expertise with technology and product specialists to help local authorities make better use of both existing and new sources of data.
With Croydon undergoing a £5.5bn regeneration programme, Croydon Council needs to keep the disruption to citizens and businesses to a minimum, which requires careful management and planning.
To manage the disruption Croydon Council was using a variety of cross department processes and tools, many of which required significant manual data input and did not fit the requirements.
