Event Overview

Cutting through Complexity to Deliver Clarity for Actionable Insights

Australian Public Sector data teams are facing progressively complex challenges that will demand greater preparation, planning, and accuracy for contingencies onwards from 2022. We see trends of open-by-default, more advanced, and machine-assisted analytics, users, and citizens becoming more aware of the risks of sharing their data when transparency is lacking. We can, however, even the odds a little with the correct tools, practices, and data. 

This quarter, we will delve deeper into the elements of effective governance, leadership, and culture, to further data outcomes, maturity, and advanced tech for better decision-making. As well as balancing these with ethics, responsibility, and discernment when handling public data.

 Join us at the complimentary Developing Autonomous Data Competencies for Real Value & Analytics-Readiness Virtual Event, as we unpack this.
