When Think Digital Partners launched its conference programme into the tech verticals within public sector back in 2017 we heard stories from various government departments about how the ‘information grab’ part of the procurement process could easily last months wasting significant time and money. Off of the back of some of these discussions we sat down with a DWP Digital Director and devised the basis of the Digital ID Directory which is now sitting on our main website.
The aim of the directory was to make it simple and quick for procurement teams to find the suppliers of the ‘appropriate products and services’ that aligned with their current needs using a search facility that offered over 70 different categories.
Put simply the directory is a buyers guide for procurement teams and a marketing hub for the suppliers that list themselves there. Within each listing you can find details of products, services, testimonials, customers, partners, industry insight and the obvious contact details from the supplier all in one easy to find place. The Digital ID Directory quickly grew and its launch was followed by the Cybersecurity Directory and between them these two directories now generate over 17,000 views and engagements each month.

In the next few weeks (and on the run up to the next Think Data for Government conference) Think Digital Partners will be launching the Data Directory to sit alongside the Digital Identity and Cybersecurity Directories.
If you are a company that offers data product and services to the public sector, then you should consider listing in the new directory. Below you can see the 64 different categories being used in the search at launch. The directory will be heavily promoted to our public and private sector audience and promotional copies will be emailed to all delegates attending our Data conference in December.
