Agilisys, the digital transformation specialist for the public sector, has announced the appointment of Richard Walker as Partner for Data and Insights. The appointment supports Agilisys’ growth within healthcare and local government and reflects the crucial role that data now plays in the role of digital transformation.
Richard joins Agilisys from KPMG, where he was most recently a Director of Data and Analytics responsible for helping public sector clients to unlock the value in their data. At Agilisys, Richard will work closely with the leadership team to build and evolve the company’s data-led customer offerings.
“I’m a firm believer that the better use of data is critical to the future of our public services,” says Richard Walker, Partner for Data and Insights at Agilisys.
“As more organisations explore the potential in their data and in turn realise the benefits of advanced analytics and digital innovation, it’s a hugely exciting time to be in this industry. The drive to join up data across Health and Care presents a unique opportunity to generate new insights to some of our most vexing challenges.”
Joining Agilisys gives me the chance to put this into practice across the public sector, delivering benefits to citizens and keeping people and communities healthy, safe and thriving.
Agilisys empowers public sector workers with the tools and insight to improve outcomes for the citizens they serve. The company combines significant data consulting experience with an award-winning approach to technology solution delivery to create end-to-end solutions for its public sector clients.
“We’re delighted to have attracted someone of Richard’s calibre to Agilisys and look forward to seeing him apply his experience and vision to our customers,” adds Louise Ah-Wong, Senior Partner for Digital Transformation at Agilisys.
“Whether you’re talking about data analytics for healthcare or local and regional government, the key is allying deep industry and sector knowledge with broad functional capabilities with a high degree of technical sophistication. The addition of Richard to our team bolsters our already strong data capabilities and allows us to join up our AI, insight, data platform and data managed services offerings and leaves us well placed to better meet the needs of the market. Richard will be supported by newly promoted Agilisys veteran Dan Thompson who has taken the role of Head of Data Services and Engineering.”
