What’s In Store for 2024

The newly developed Data and Digital Government Strategy will serve as
a blueprint for the use and management of data and digital technologies
through 2030. By aligning the Australian Public Service’s data and digital agenda for the first time, the Strategy will support more joined-up delivery across the Government.

The vision is simple, secure, and connected public services, for all people and businesses, delivered through world-class data and digital capabilities.

With this in mind, the 9th Annual Innovate Australia Showcase will bring together 700+ federal government leaders and influencers to converge, decipher, and navigate how to best deliver this vision by 2030. We will be sense-checking critical tools, technologies, and requirements to underpin the next frontier of public service progression, and collectively unveil powerful next steps in accelerating digital and data capabilities within APS.
