Ian Ansell

Government Digital Service

Ian (he/him) has been working in data, in some capacity for over a decade. This has resulted in too many spreadsheets, dashboards and badly written git commits for anyone to unpick. He is a great believer in sharing knowledge, automating the boring stuff and getting data actioned upon. He is currently a Senior Performance Analyst at the Government Digital Service, and was previously a Data Scientist at Citizens Advice.

How the Government Digital Service is using Google Data Studio to get data out the door

Google Data Studio allows us to connect to data, build a presentation and more importantly share to make sure it gets into the hands of those who need it, when they need it. This session will look at the pros and cons, the good, the bad and the downright tricky elements of using Google Data Studio. It is aimed at those who are using or might want to start using this (free to use) tool, and are curious about getting started. Ian will use the example of Government web traffic (using dummy data) to demonstrate.
