Mini DIG's

We have established 6 Mini Digital Infrastructure Groups (DIG) across the region that are a dynamic sub-group within the larger framework dedicated to catalysing digital transformation on a focused local scale. Its mission is to drive increased digital investment, elevate digital infrastructure, and pave the way for comprehensive digital inclusion.

The Mini DIG’s operate with precision, focus and agility, harnessing targeted strategies to bolster investment in digital services and infrastructure. They act as digital champions working across multiple service areas within the authority.  By fostering collaborations with stakeholders across all business areas and projects, it identifies and seizes opportunities to funnel knowledge and resources into digital initiatives that lay the foundation for sustained growth and enhanced technological improvement.

At its core, a Mini DIG acts to ensure that digital adoption is considered at each opportunity by using the Digital Adoption Strategy to drive and improve services and infrastructure. Through joined up planning and execution, it engineers pathways that elevate connectivity, speed, and reliability. This infrastructure overhaul serves as the backbone for future innovation, setting the stage for a seamless digital experience.

However, the Mini DIG’s commitment extends beyond the technical realm. It champions digital inclusion as a non-negotiable principle. By designing programs and policies that address barriers to access, it seeks to ensure that the benefits of the digital revolution are accessible to all.

In essence, the Mini DIG is a focused dynamo propelling the overarching mission of creating a truly Connected Berkshire. With a laser focus on inclusion, infrastructure, and investment, it serves as a testament to the fact that impactful change often stems from a dedicated collective acting as a beacon of progress in the digital landscape. Berkshire is truly open to the digital future, creating a Connected Berkshire: Now. Tomorrow. Beyond.
