Join us for the NDL Public Sector, digital transformation showcase of the year at TechFest-22 on 6th & 7th July.


Join members of the NDL Community to share and learn about the amazing work being carried out across the Public Sector using NDL’s Automation and Digital tools. Learn about the innovative approaches being taken by colleagues to solve many of the common challenges facing HealthCare, Local Government & Housing and Policing. Find out how these projects can be applied as part of your business transformation processes, maximising your return on existing systems and NDL investment.

In addition to the wide range of customer presentations, we will also be showcasing the latest developments in the NDL product portfolio. We will explore these through a series of show and tell updates, and hands-on lab sessions, where attendees can use the latest pre-release versions from the Evolve Transformation Platform.

This year, we also celebrate NDL’s 40th year working with the UK Public Sector and want to share this milestone with our community. – It promises to be a packed two days, with lots to learn and take away. Find out more about planned sessions and speakers below:

  • Intelligent Connections - Building on Connect, we will take a practical look at a range of Cognitive services appropriate to the Digital Transformation journey. How to configure and consume common services from Microsoft Azure, AWS, and Google such as for image recognition, handwriting and form analysis or dynamic routing for appointments. We will discuss the differences between the services as well as exploring how these can be configured in Connect so they can play a part in your wider transformation journey.

Live Labs

These sessions are for a more technical audience with a background in DevOps and who have some direct experience using NDL tools. As these are ‘Hands on’, places on these sessions are limited to eight and therefore attendees are advised to book early to avoid disappointment. – We will be running each Lab stream multiple times over the two days, however, but each will be on a first come first server basis, so don’t forget to register your interest in the pre-event registration information.


  • Hands on FX - This session is aimed at Form creators at which  NDL experts will demonstrate a range of techniques to get more from your eForms. It will also look at the new features and elements that available as part of FX 1.6 and how to make the most of these. Attendees will be able to use the FX Studio to experience these techniques and elements for themselves.
  • Hands on with Hub & Flow - In this session, attendees with be introduced to the studio, and will be able to build new processes, either by importing and managing pre-existing QX processes, using the pre-existing Storyboard templates, or creating one from scratch.
  • Hands On with Connect - Get hands on with the Connect Technology within Forms and Apps.  Attendees will be able to see how to simplify complex web services into ‘Connectors’ and then understand how to consume them in eForm and Mobile App projects.
