Council seeks to undertake proof-of-concept exercise to bring together data

Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council is looking to explore the use of business intelligence to make the most of the data at its disposal.

The authority is to undertake a proof-of-concept exercise to design, construct and test a BI platform “that will meet our changing corporate requirements going forwards”. The platform should allow the borough to bring together and analyse data from various internal and external sources.

The ultimate goal is to further the council’s transformation plans.

A contract notice said: “BwDBC are looking to implement a single business intelligence solution that can interrogate, match and report on data from multiple corporate services together with relevant external data to drive our digital transformation. Combining data across our organisation to inform business through the use of dynamic dashboards and reports that provide insight into the data that we already manage.”

The authority has set aside £30,000 to fund the proof of concept and is inviting potential suppliers to submit bids. Interested companies have until 8 November to do so, with a four-month contract due to come into effect around the end of next month.
