In over a half century, there were many reforms that have tried to provide a strong impulse to the processes of change and innovation in the local and central Public Administration.
Even though at first glance it seems to be one of an endless series of reforms, the so-called Brunetta Reform is based on some new foundations that should become the legacy of every public administration: the definition of administrative objectives that are coherent with the strategic objectives of policy, timely monitoring of processes, accountability, and transparency. The strong interest shown by the public administration in tools for decision support (Business Intelligence), with a particular emphasis on those that are able to link statistical analysis of phenomena to their geographic dimension, is thus not surprising.
Nomisma and Iconsulting will present the results of the survey, conducted with the sponsorship of DigitPA, on the state of the art of the use of decision support systems in Italy, with a particular attention to the diffusion of these systems in the public sector.
The conference represents an important occasion for discussion between personalities from institutional and academic spheres who are in positions to provide guidelines and comment on the trends highlighted by this study, illustrating best practices, successful cases and fundamental guidelines both for those who work with this type of tool on a daily basis as well as those are only now becoming familiar with this important issue.
