why London needs a digital director



Dale Lovell, UK Chief Digital Officer and Managing Director (MD) at ADYOULIKE said of London Mayor Sadiq Khan Hires London’s First Digital Director:
“Ten years ago, the Digital Director job just didn’t exist. Even in 2013, there were it was only 500 CDOs worldwide. The ‘digital’ aspect of organizations was also something that was divided among several people. “
“However, as the world increasingly adopts a ‘connected’ lifestyle, with little downtime for its digital devices, paper is now essential, not only for businesses, but also for government and regional authorities. ”.
“The mayor is right to stress that transforming the capital into a ‘smart city’ is a critical need for years to come. London’s incoming CDO will be tasked with radically transforming the way the city does business and its role will focus on helping pioneer new technology sectors, encourage collaboration, and embrace common standards around data and service transformation. “.
“To truly achieve ‘smart city’ status with the goal of growing and building London’s reputation as the city the world seeks for leadership in urban innovation, the Mayor must first foster a digital mindset. That means nimble ways of thinking, future-proof public spending on new projects, with planned digital infrastructure, and also encouraging and launching initiatives for all London businesses and organizations to embrace digital. ”
“The most important factor in the success of this role will be the CDO’s ability to be flexible. With Brexit uncertainty far from over and an ever-changing technology environment, the London CDO must be able to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances and put London’s best interests first. “
“The next ten years will see rapid digitization and automation of many key services; with the public’s expectation regarding the services they receive, increasingly built around digital infrastructure ”.
“It is a great challenge to change London, but it must happen now.”
