Corporate and Shared Services

Tuesday, 23 August – NSW | Wednesday, 24 August – VIC

Event Overview

We are now well into an era of continuous change and instability. Budget constraints, economic recovery, and the driving imperative for public sector corporate functions to ‘do more with less’ have accentuated the demands for becoming more automated, data-driven, and intelligence-enabled decision-making hubs as a result.

With new technologies, processes, and analytic capabilities, the transformation from being a mere cost-centre to a smarter, more integrated function is fast becoming the dominant strategy for back-offices across all states of Australia and New Zealand.

2022 will continue to challenge the priorities of the public sector, forcing rapid adaptation, advancement, and the need for efficient economic response plans.

So, to help optimise and further evolve your department’s corporate division, we’ve put together this state-specific gathering to provide a platform for exploring emerging technologies, techniques, and real-world case studies addressing all things related to the enormous responsibilities of the back-office.
