About the Integrated Data Service (IDS) : Overview

The Integrated Data Service (IDS) is a cross-government project, with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) leading on its delivery. We are working closely with partners across government, the devolved administrations and the external research community.

Its development is an important step in achieving the aims of the government’s National Data Strategy (opens in a new tab)  and the roadmap for digital and data from 2022 to 2025 (opens in a new tab) 

The IDS is a central platform that provides access to improved data, analytical and visualisation tools, in a secure multi-cloud infrastructure.

This means that accredited researchers and analysts can work together to produce analysis that addresses major societal challenges at pace.
