About the Event


An Ambitious Vision – Digital Transformation driving Strategic Ambition

The University of Portsmouth has bold plans for the future. By 2030, the University aims to be the top modern university in the UK and one of the top 100 young universities in the world. To do great things, of course, it takes more than good intentions. To that end, the University has also committed to radically transforming its digital technology and systems. This session is an opportunity to learn directly from the team that has led and delivered a portfolio of transformational projects that underpin this ambitious vision. The team will showcase how they are transforming the University’s Recruitment and Outreach, Marketing and Campaigns, alumni relations and advancement, B2B, Research & Innovation and Events Management activities which will, in turn, help support world-class research, education, and student opportunities.

The event will be hosted by SThree PLC / Real Public Sector. SThree Managed Services partnered with the Portsmouth team and Salesforce to deliver these projects.
