System Data Resource

Our emergency response to COVID-19 highlighted the value and impact of partnership data analytics. It also identified some of the barriers that public sector organisations face in joining and analysing the data they hold about the services we provide to some of our most vulnerable citizens.

Together the Essex Online Partnership and Essex Centre for Data Analytics (ecda) are keen to identify opportunities for data collaboration across shared priorities within the Essex public sector.

To help us improve how we work together, identify learning and development opportunities and shape our data culture to better prepare us for a future system data response, we want to understand the current level of data capability and capacity in different organisations. A comprehensive data asset map for Essex would be a valuable resource for all, informing our individual and collaborative data work.

Data analytics teams across the Essex public sector completed a short survey in November 2020, providing their assessment of their organisation’s capacity and capability across data management, data manipulation, analytics and data science and reporting and visualising data.

During September 2021 we will be mapping out the available datasets across public sector organisations to identify new opportunities for collaboration.
