Global Enterprise IT Giant Salesforce Signs Up To Support UK Public Sector AI Conference

Salesforce, the global number one CRM solution for sales force automation, today says it’s backing Think Digital Partners’ key AI for the UK Public sector conference.

The reason: it believes use of artificial intelligence is going to be crucial in improving the way the state at all levels helps service users – and wants to help spread the word via this unique one-day event for public sector IT decision makers.

“Today’s citizen expects to be treated as individuals, with individual needs and desires,” noted its Senior Vice President and Head of UK, Gavin Mee.

“That significantly impacts our government mandates and requires that governments need to change their approach to interaction with citizens.

Mee and his team believe predictive intelligence, machine learning and other AI tools present “incredible opportunities” for the global public sector to be at the forefront of innovation and experience.

And as we are at a truly unique point in time with these highly complex but promising technologies becoming available, Salesforce says it sees them as essential to the success of the UK government in creating “a truly advanced society in which we can all flourish”.

Commenting on the new relationship with this tier one technology brand, Matt Stanley, Think Digital Partners Director, said: “It’s great to have the backing and support of Salesforce on our new conference.

“It is important for us to be work with companies that lead the way in supplying the public sector with new and emerging technologies, so for Think Digital Partners, it’s a perfect match.”

Don’t lose your chance to see what Salesforce has to say on these themes – as well as hear from a wide range of senior government advisors and sector stakeholders – at the conference (June 23).

“I look forward to discussing these themes and more at Think AI for Public Sector this June,” added Mee.
