Alison McLaughlin features in Tech 100: key figures driving the digital agenda in Scotland

Alison McLaughlin, Sopra Steria’s Head of Local and Regional Government is included, for the third time, in the Holyrood Connect Tech 100 – a cross-sector list that details who in government, education, business and other organisations is leading or playing a key role in driving the digital agenda in Scotland. The profile piece is published by ‘Holyrood’ on-line magazine.

Alison is responsible for running Sopra Steria’s business in local government across the UK and our public sector business in Scotland and Northern Ireland. She recently signed Scotland’s Digital Participation Charter to pledge our support to bring the opportunities that digital has to offer to as many in our society as we can – especially those who we often refer to as the digitally excluded but who have the most to gain from digital participation.

In addition, Alison is also a board member of ScotlandIS - the trade body and authoritative voice championing the digital ambition, talent and experience in Scotland.

Says Alison, "I believe that digital can make a real difference to business, public services and people’s lives – and that these are benefits that should be available to everyone in our society. I’m really proud to be recognised by Holyrood as someone helping to drive that ambition in Scotland."

Holyrood Connect brings together public policy decision-makers, Public Sector ICT professionals and the technology industry and is Scotland's premier public sector ICT magazine, providing unrivalled coverage of how ICT is changing the way public services are delivered and how people engage with government.
