State of the nation: Digital transformation

On 22 March 2017, ICE published their State of the Nation 2017 report, looking at how advances in digital technology and data are transforming how infrastructure is designed, delivered and operated.


Digital transformation is bringing benefits to clients and end users as well as unlocking economic growth and productivity across the UK.

State of the Nation 2017 discusses the practical steps industry and government need to take to maintain momentum and truly harness the benefits.

Guided by ICE's steering group, they talked to 350 organisations and individuals, asking them to identify the main blockers and enablers to infrastructure’s digital transformation.

The key recommendations of the report are as follows:

Unlock the productivity potential of digital transformation

Encourage a step change in organisational culture and leadership in industry

Future proof our infrastructure networks
