Concerns Surrounding UK Government Data Skills and Technology Infrastructure Remain

New research has revealed that only one in four civil servants believe their department is following the Government’s National Data Strategy, with skills and technology infrastructure likely to be significant barriers to the strategy’s effectiveness.

Eighty-six civil servants from major Government departments including HMRC and the Home Office were surveyed as part of research by SAS, Intel and Dods Research carried out in April 2022.

The purpose of the research was to understand data sharing practices across Government departments, with a focus on understanding key priorities and barriers around data and analytics initiatives, and the benefits of data sharing.

The findings have been published in the 2022 UK Government Data Survey research report. It comes at a time when the Government is committed to driving efficiency which would cut £5.5 billion in Government spending and maximise the value of taxpayers’ money.

The comprehensive research led by SAS found that improving and promoting data sharing across Government departments is among the top three priorities (41 per cent), along with improving the required data skills to maximise the usefulness of data (58 per cent) and creating a foundation to ensure data is fit for purpose (62 per cent). Nine in 10 civil servants also stated their Government Department now uses data to drive decision making.

These are positive findings for the Government’s National Data Strategy, which was set up in September 2021 to improve data use, and to free up businesses and organisations to use data to innovate and experiment. The aim is that this will boost productivity, create new businesses and jobs and improve public services, positioning the UK as the forerunner of the next wave of innovation.

Yet the report also set out the key barriers to data sharing across Government which could impact the effectiveness of the strategy and use of data for decision making. Respondents claimed that legacy systems are the number one barrier to data sharing and analytic initiatives.

Forty-four per cent had concerns about developing and retaining skilled staff and 37 per cent pointed to a lack of internal technical knowledge or expertise surrounding data. These represent a significant challenge for Government departments looking to harness data and either hire or train people in the right data science skills.

Speaking on the findings of the 2022 UK Government Data Survey research report, Simon Dennis, Director, Future Government and AI Evangelist, SAS UK said: “Previously departments guarded their data – as it was usually believed to outweigh the benefits of effective collaboration. One of the most important findings from our survey is the degree to which this mindset has changed, with more than two-thirds of respondents (69 per cent) saying that their department now collaborates and shares data with other Government organisations, while only five per cent are certain that their data is not yet being shared.

“The report also sets out the key barriers to data sharing across Government which could impact the effectiveness of the National Data Strategy. Almost half of respondents had concerns about developing and retaining skilled staff, while two-thirds believe that the current technology infrastructure is outdated.

“Data skills are in short supply in the job market, and the public sector may struggle to compete for top talent with private sector companies not constrained by civil service pay grades. So within the Government a focus on training the existing workforce and boosting data literacy within the service is likely to be the best option to build the skills required, while investing in the latest AI and data analytics tech is going to be vital to ensuring the effectiveness of data-based decision making.”

Roderick Crawford, VP & Country Manager, SAS UK & Ireland, said: “Over the last few years, attitudes to use of data within the UK Government have been transformed, as this research illustrates. The appointment of Chief Data Officers for many departments, the foundation of the Central Digital and Data Office, the launch of the National Data Strategy last September, and the emphasis on data in the Declaration on Government Reform are all indicators of data being at the top of the agenda.

“The 2022 UK Government Data Survey research report is a clear reflection of this as many departments look to boost efficiency and improve decision making using data. We know there are challenges, especially around skills, which can be overcome, but ultimately this drive towards data will have a major positive impact on the UK Government efficiency.”

Grand View Research, Inc. – Market Research And Consulting.
According to a new report published by Grand View Research, spread of COVID-19 requires the adoption of preventive measures for containing the spread of the disease, which is expected to drive the adoption of sterilization equipment in clinics.

Sterilization Equipment Market Overview

The global sterilization equipment market size was valued at USD 7.2 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 15.6 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 10.5% during forecast period.

Hospital-acquired Infections (HAIs), also known as nosocomial infections, are primarily found in patients receiving long-term treatment, mainly surgical treatment. They can occur in surgical centers, clinics, hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes & rehabilitation centers. Generally, the geriatric population, children, and patients with low immunity are prone to HAIs.

Gather more insights about the market drivers, restrains and growth of the Global Sterilization Equipment Market

Factors such as the use of catheters, lack of proper hygiene in healthcare settings, and excessive use of antibiotics can increase predisposition to HAIs. Furthermore, an increase in the number of surgical procedures in clinics is a major factor contributing to market growth. Maintaining proper hygiene and sanitation is necessary to maintain a healthy environment in the clinic. In addition, the spread of COVID-19 requires the adoption of preventive measures for containing the spread of the disease. These factors are expected to drive the adoption of sterilization equipment in clinics.

Increasing prevalence of HAIs due to lack of sanitation and preventive measures is a key factor anticipated to propel market growth over the forecast period. According to a CDC report in 2018, around 1.7 million cases of HAIs and around 99,000 associated deaths are reported each year in American hospitals. As per a report published by European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), in 2018, prevalence of HAIs in European countries was around 7.1%. It also reported that over 4,131,000 patients suffer from HAIs in Europe each year. Such cases are boosting the demand for sterilization equipment.



Sterilization equipment are required for sterilization and cleaning of different equipment used in the hospitals as they help in reducing the spread of infections and diseases. An increase in the incidence of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and other autoimmune diseases, is anticipated to boost the demand for sterilization equipment. Antimicrobial resistance, increased adoption of unhealthy & sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and alcohol consumption, are some of the major factors contributing to the growing prevalence of chronic diseases.

According to the National Diabetes Statistic Report 2017, by CDC, more than 100.0 million people in the U.S. were living with diabetes or prediabetes. In addition, the WHO reported that in 2015, approximately 1.6 million global deaths were directly caused due to diabetes. Cancer has been a global healthcare burden. According to estimates by WHO, cancer is the leading cause of death globally and almost 1 in 6 deaths can be attributed to this disease. In addition, it reported that over 70% of cancer-related deaths typically occur in middle- and low-income countries.

The rising prevalence of chronic conditions has significantly increased hospital admission rate. Blankets, sterile fluids, and equipment are some of the essential requirements in hospitals & clinics. Thus, in such cases, sterilization equipment efficiently serve the purpose, as they reduce the risk of infection transmission among patients and improve care delivery. Thus, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases is expected to positively impact the market during the forecast period.

Executive Pay System Is Broken, Says Church of England’s Pension Board

The system of executive pay is “broken”, the Church of England’s pension board has said, as it challenged more companies to ease the pain of soaring inflation by committing to paying workers the living wage.

On the day retailer Next approved a 50% pay rise for its chief executive, Adam Matthews, the Church’s chief responsible investment officer, called out examples of “excessive pay” at large companies in a post on LinkedIn.

On Thursday, shareholders in Next backed the company’s decision to reward Simon Wolfson with £4.4m this year, the highest level since 2015, despite opposition from some investors concerned about the disparity between executives and the wider workforce.

Matthews, who manages £3bn of investments, voted his shares against the increase. Explaining the decision, he wrote: “We can sound off on radio and vote against but we need to recognise that fundamentally the executive pay system we have isn’t working.

“This is particularly egregious at a time that many of the workers in many of these companies will be struggling with the growing costs of living. You have major increases in executive pay in consumer facing companies such as Next where the workforce are not accredited as being on a living wage.”

A spokesperson for Next said: “Given the challenges facing the retail sector, Next does not anticipate increasing wages above the national living wage as it prioritises protecting jobs.”

Companies which are accredited as living wage employers have committed to paying all of their employees a rate based on living costs, which stands at £9.90 an hour across the UK, and £11.05 in London.

Matthews said he would be inviting the board chairs and chairs of remuneration committees, and meeting with other fund managers, to discuss reforms.

He added: “There is a societal crisis unfolding before us and in the UK you have over three-quarters of churches involved in supporting foodbanks that are not just providing food to people out of work but those in work that cannot make ends meet. So as a pension fund we will be convening a meeting of asset owners, with key fund managers to look at this broken system that is enabling excess.”

His comments followed a warning on Wednesday from Martin Lewis, founder of the consumer advice site Money Saving Expert, that financial desperation could lead to “civil unrest”.

Households already struggling with soaring food and energy bills face a further hit when the energy price cap rises for the second time this year in October.

“The public mood is desperate, it’s angry and we may well be moving towards, if we don’t sort this when those bills rises come in October to £2,600 in the middle of winter, I worry about civil unrest,” he told ITV’s Peston programme.

The Institutional Voting Information Service (IVIS), which is part of the Investment Association and advises investors on corporate governance, had marked Next’s annual remuneration report with a “red top” warning, suggesting that shareholders vote against.

Despite the opposition, just 7.5% of shareholders challenged the plan to pay Wolfson an annual bonus worth 100% of his basic salary and two share bonuses based on long-term performance.

Activists from Share Action and Labour Behind the Label who attended Next’s AGM in Leicester, the centre of the UK’s garment-making industry, asked the company’s executives why workers in factories which supply garments to Next were not paid the living wage.

They reported that Wolfson listened carefully to them, but did not promise change.

Other firms including the owner of Wagamama, the Restaurant Group, have also come in for criticism in recent weeks over executive bonuses. The group – which also owns the Frankie & Benny’s and Chiquito chains – paid its chief executive, Andy Hornby, £1.2m last year up, up from £518,000 a year earlier.

Meanwhile, Tesco has been criticised for paying its chief executive £4.75m last year, including the highest annual bonus awarded by the supermarket since 2016, at a time when families are being hit by soaring food price inflation.

Despite this, Matthews wrote there was rarely widespread backlash from investors: “There are occasional rebellions of shareholders, but then attention diverts and we all waste our time trying to decipher ever complicated justifications for excessive pay.”

Sainsbury’s and Marks & Spencer Clash Over Online Tax Plans

A battle is shaping up between major retailers over whether the UK should introduce an online sales tax, with Sainsbury’s demanding it to help revive struggling high streets while M&S argues it would have the opposite effect.

A day before the government’s three-month consultation on changes to business taxes closes, the finance director of Sainsbury’s reiterated calls for an increase in taxes on digital retailers to fund a reduction on the business rates levied on physical stores.

However, the finance head of Marks & Spencer, said an online sales tax would “punish” retailers that had worked hard to shift into modern ways of selling and leave them with less cash to invest in their high street estate.

Kevin O’Byrne, the chief financial officer at Sainsbury’s, which owns Argos and Habitat as well as its supermarkets, said: “High business rates on shops is destroying high streets up and down the country. We urgently need fundamental business rates reform.

“We urge the government to introduce an online sales tax that funds a reduction in business rates for retailers of all sizes and levels the playing field between physical and online retailers.”

O’Byrne’s position contrasts with that of his counterpart at M&S, Eoin Tonge, who said: “Far from levelling up, an online sales tax would lock us down. It would make it even harder for the retailers the consultation is purportedly trying to help to invest in the digital transformation required to survive and grow in the modern, digital era.

“The solution we need is practical, pragmatic reform of business rates and better taxing of global players to ensure everyone pays their fair share.”

In a letter to the chancellor, excerpts of which were published by the BBC, Tonge said that putting an additional tax on retail, which he said was “already overburdened”, would “simply mean retailers cut their cloth accordingly”.

“This rationalisation will always start with the least profitable parts of a business – which, in the case of multi-channel retailers, will more often than not be high street stores,” the letter said.

M&S appears to be an outlier among retailers on the subject. Two weeks ago a “retail jobs alliance” of heavyweights in the sector, including Sainsbury’s and rival supermarket chains Tesco, Co-op and Morrisons, jointly called for an overall cut in business rates for all premises and said they were “open to the possibility” this could be funded through an online sales tax.

The new group – which also included Greggs, Waterstones, B&Q-owner Kingfisher, the union Usdaw and the industry bodies representing independent retailers and convenience stores – said an online tax would help “level the playing field” between internet retailers and bricks-and-mortar stores at a time when Covid-19 has further shifted shopping habits online.

Members of the alliance employ more than a million people across the UK, representing one-third of jobs in the entire retail sector.

Huge Gains of Wealthiest Brits Should Be Taxed More to Help Households With Cost of Living Crisis

As Sunday Times Rich List shows record number of UK billionaires, their gains should be taxed the same as income from work

Huge increases in wealth at top during pandemic shows how ‘wealth often begets more wealth’, think tank says

Calls for redistribution through higher taxes on income from wealth, and scrapping council tax for a new, proportionate property tax

Reacting to publication of this year’s Sunday Times Rich List, George Dibbs, head of the IPPR think tank’s Centre for Economic Justice, said: “As we enter a once-in-a-generation cost of living crisis the Sunday Times Rich List shows us again that vast wealth often begets more wealth. That has proved particularly true during the pandemic, when the wealthiest accumulated more wealth than poorer people who saved nothing.

“Now there are more billionaires in the UK than ever before and the collective wealth of the richest has grown again.

“We need to look urgently at ways to support the households most exposed by this new price crisis, and that should include redistributing the wealth gains of the richest to pay for higher social security benefits for those who most need them.

“That means reforming the tax system so that income from wealth – capital gains – is taxed the same as hard-earned income from work. It’s also time for a fair, proportional property tax to replace the regressive system of council tax. Those with the broadest shoulders should be contributing more.

“At the same time we should scrap so called ‘non-dom’ status through which the wealthy avoid tax by spending time abroad.”

How to Choose the Best Data Security Solution for Your Enterprise

When it comes to data security, it can be considered to be rather unfortunate that there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

This is because every business has different needs, and therefore, requires a different approach to data security. That is why it is important to carefully evaluate your options and choose the data security solution that is right for your enterprise.

In this blog post, we will discuss the key factors you need to consider when choosing a data security solution. Additionally, we will also look to provide tips for narrowing down your options and making the best decision for your business.

What are some of the things that need to be considered?

Naturally, there are a number of different things that need to be considered when it comes down to finding the right and the best data security solution for your business. Many aspects can vary for different businesses, however we have managed to identify three of the most important ones that will be relevant to every single organization in the world.

Budget available

When choosing a data security solution, the first thing you need to consider is your budget. Data security solutions can vary widely in price, so it is important to set a budget and stick to it. Once you have a budget in mind, you can start evaluating data security solutions based on their features and pricing.

Of course, businesses that have larger budgets will typically be able to get the best data security solutions available on the market as they typically come at a premium. However, some would strongly argue that you can not put a price on security given what could potentially be at stake should it be hacked into or exposed!

What level of security is needed?

Another important factor to consider when choosing a data security solution is the level of security you need.

As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, not all data security solutions are created equal, and some offer more comprehensive protection than others. If you are handling sensitive data, it is important to choose a solution that offers robust security features.

For some businesses, they might look at a SASE solution as these platforms offer a comprehensive set of security features on-prem and in the cloud, including Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), CASB, DLP, FWaaS, and more.

What type of support is provided?

When evaluating data security solutions, it is also important to consider the level of support you need. Some solutions offer 24/7 support, while others only offer limited support during business hours. If you are not sure how much support you need, it is best to err on the side of caution and choose a solution that offers comprehensive support.


Additionally, you also need to consider the scalability of the data security solution. As your business grows, you will need a data security solution that can scale with you. Otherwise, you will be stuck with a solution that is no longer adequate for your needs. This would then potentially expose your business to security threats whilst also ending up being potentially expensive as it continues to be paid for when it is no longer effective.

How easy is the data solution to use?

Finally, you will also want to think about ease of use when choosing a data security solution. The last thing you want is a solution that is so complicated to use that it actually puts your data at risk. Look for a solution that is easy to set up and maintain, so you can focus on running your business instead of worrying about data security.

Final Thoughts

By keeping these factors in mind, you can narrow down your options and choose the best data security solution for your enterprise. With the right solution in place, you can rest assured that your data is safe and secure.

It might seem like a lot of work that would appear rather complex to understand, however a security expert will immediately know what will work best and will provide everything required. Indeed, as some might suggest, it is certainly worth taking the time to ensure you get this right immediately, otherwise it could become very costly.

How to Choose a B2B Data Provider – 3 Key Things You Should Know

Prospect data is vital for B2B sales and marketing activities; the more current and accurate it is, the better your chances of success.

B2B data providers in the UK help companies by providing qualitative, analytical, and measurable information about prospective customers in a marketing list that can be used for generating enquiries and leads.

Business data providers can only meet a clients need if they understand the specific requirements of their B2B marketing targets and goals.

There are so many providers of B2B data on the market at the moment, each claiming to be the best or largest. Where do you begin to find the best supplier for you?

More Than Words Marketing is a data broker and direct marketing agency serving businesses all over the UK.

Our experience suggests that a really thorough search of data providers should include the following:

1. Conduct Your Research

Make sure to do your research before speaking with a sales rep, to allow you to enter sales conversations equipped with useful questions.

Research is also essential to eliminating any B2B data supplier that isn’t a good fit, saving time and effort.

Consider these factors when evaluating a potential B2B data supplier:

it thoroughly understands and follows any specific data protection and privacy regulations (such as GDPR),
it uses reputable and not dubious data sources and adheres to responsible and legal data collection methods,
whether your company’s target markets, industries and audiences are well represented in their data offering,
which features and integrations are included in different plans, as well as which data fields are available, and
why you should invest in its B2B data list over what you already have.

When dealing with any data supplier, always look for transparency – it also pays to find out if there are any hidden terms and conditions in their contracts.

2. Verify data accuracy

The accuracy of any B2B marketing database you purchase should be your primary concern.

If your company’s sales team are given bad contact data, they could waste valuable time contacting prospects who have changed jobs, or have left the company altogether.

Alternatively, you could lose business to your competitors.

However, fresh data helps you speed up your pipeline, narrow down your potential customers and create improved lead generation.

Providers should be able to tell you where they get their data from, and any leading B2B data provider will be confident when talking about data origins.

Make sure you also know how often your provider updates its B2B database.

Changes in the workplace are inevitable – your team shouldn’t be sending email marketing to ex-employees of target businesses, or using the wrong name to greet someone who has recently inherited a role-specific email address.

3. Ask about packages and add-ons

If you are looking for a B2B data provider, you probably want a solution rather than one specific product.

As you consider your own needs, we recommend researching what special features and product add-ons each provider offers.

Be sure to find out if your B2B data provider offers additional services, such as data enrichment, marketing and outreach campaigns, list segmentation, and so on.

Weighing up what you get for the price is important, as well as comparing which features are of most importance to your business.

As an example, a provider may offer a solution that meets your data need, but doesn’t have a telemarketing service, or you might find that one provider has valuable additional services you haven’t even considered yet.

A good B2B data provider should be able to handle your B2B prospecting and lead generation campaign needs so that you have one company managing all aspects instead of working and coordinating multiple companies who only provide one of the services you require.

Here’s how you can order marketing data

Simple Tips for Teaching Piano Lessons

Compared to other instruments, playing the piano is probably the hardest. It is even harder to teach another person.

For once, you have to first create a relationship with your student to ensure learning happens. Anyone can become a professional with the right instructor. As a piano teacher, it is crucial to know the fundamental steps to take to ensure every student masters the skills and build a relationship with them that will help them achieve their goals. In this article, we will outline several steps on teaching piano the best way.

Know Your Students

The main reason most students quit learning an instrument is because of the relationship they have with their teachers. Mostly, the teacher is not usually supportive or understanding. Therefore, know your students well and understand what they want to get out of the lessons. Find out the kind of person they want to spend the session with. Do this by having a meeting before the lesson begins to know them well and connect.

Challenge Your Students

Chords piano can be a bit complicated without the right guidance. Once the students learn the basics, it may seem like there is nothing else left to teach them. However, the best way to teach your students is to start with complex concepts. Challenge your students by starting with the theory. The theory is something that most piano students don’t like. The best way to keep the students interested, especially those who want to advance, is to introduce them to theory.

Start Without the Piano

You need to create a foundation for your lessons, and this is why we suggest starting with the theory part. Starting your lessons without the piano is a great way of teaching self-control to students who want to start learning right away. It helps them focus on one thing at a time and avoid the temptations of pressing the keys during the lessons. Teach them how to use their fingers and the right posture when playing the piano.

Play the Piano

This is the part that the students are probably waiting for. Start by helping them get comfortable with the keyboard and the seat. Teach them why middle C is vital and how the keys are arranged. The best way to warm up is to start with easy songs. For instance, you can start teaching them free fallin chords to help them focus on finger movement and get familiar with the keys. Understanding simple chords will help set a foundation of learning that will allow the students to progress through the lessons.

Set Goals

Each lesson will come with a specific goal. Without the goals, it is hard to track the progress of your students or how much you have achieved as a teacher. Therefore, set goals depending on the experience of your students. Give your students something to work on and have something you hope your students will achieve. It is crucial to understand the goals of each student to know how better you can help them.


These are simple tips for helping you give the best piano lessons. Remember to focus on one thing at a time and teach your students to master the fundamentals. The simple things seem to be the easiest to forget. So, as you teach the complex ones, make sure you teach the simple ones too.
