Drivers for digital transformation

Drivers for digital transformation

  • Expanding the reach of our statistics is at the heart of the ONS vision

  • User needs/demands – print no longer appropriate or useful

  • Potential for wider audience in contrast to falling print usage and demand


New dissemination opportunities

New dissemination opportunities

  • 40 million web users

  • 24/7 accessto our data

  • Richer content – interactive, videos, infographics, audio

  • Greater exposure = greater reuse

  • Shorter publishing production times = ability to react quickly to trends and environmental/societal issues


Challenges and outcomes

Challenges and outcomes

  • Large project – 60,000 content items migrated, hundreds of staff trained, support services established

  • Devolved publishing model = need to embed a digital mindset amongst hundreds of staff

  • Dispelling myths about digital content

  • Breaking through decades of good practice and expertise for print publishing to make content fit for the web

  • Emerging successes – theme pages and infographics

Lessons learnt

Lessons learnt

  • Too much focus on technical change and not enough on cultural change

  • Web dissemination does not guarantee accessibility

  • Writing for the web and developing rich content is an expert/professional skill

  • Professional dissemination must be given equal billing with statistical quality

  • The technical complexities of a devolved publishing system can detract from the quality/development of web content


Conclusion

Conclusion

Investment in the physical transition from print

to web publishing can only be realised with

adequate investment in business change and

specialist skills, bolstered by a commitment to

invest in continuous improvement

The transition from print to web publishing is a cultural shift that requires those involved to develop a digital mindset
