This community is for officers for whom data intelligence is a key part of their role. This community of practitioners will share with us the challenges you face and  ways in which we can aid you and your organisation to use data more effectively. By contributing to this group, you will be helping to ensure that the data insights that we bring to you are relevant, useful and above all impactful.

Who is it for

This community of practice will be open to both LA and RSL members, and will meet on an ad-hoc basis to ensure our Business Intelligence Tools are as useful as possible.
