Dear Colleagues 

The government's drive for openness and transparency in information held by public sector organisations will have huge implications on the quality and management of data. What will this mean for you and your organisation? 

EPSI Platform is proud to support the Guardian's Managing Public Sector Information conference taking place on 1 March in London . Join us to debate the challenges facing the sector and how approaches to openness will affect storage, retrieval and usage of public sector information. 

2 for 1 offer available at guardian.co.uk/managing-information 

Learn through a combination of expert presentations, panel discussions, debates and best practice case studies with key topics including: 

    • The transparency agenda and the next steps for government openness 
    • How will the open government license enable information to be shared, used and re-used 
    • Managing data and information effectively using open standards 
    • Retaining knowledge in a reduced work force 
    • Delivering cashable benefits from your information 
    • Information governance in an open information society 

Don’t miss opening keynote speaker Rufus Pollock , member of the Transparency Board, as he explains the background to the agenda and how it will encourage commercial and community innovation around open data. 

Other expert speakers include: Emer Coleman, Greater London Authority ; Paul Davidson , Local e-Government Standards Body ; Andrew Larner, Improvement and Efficiency South East ; Oliver Morley, The National Archives ; Mark O'Neill, Department for Culture, Media and Sports .
