Event Overview

Cutting through Complexity to Deliver Clarity for Actionable Insights

With year-on-year increases in Australian government investment in AI, emerging technology, and ethics rising to improve responsiveness and resilience of public services, new opportunities emerge to continue building national analytical capabilities, enhance decision-making, and scale operational agility.


How can we leverage and maintain the increasing digital mandates, skills, modernise applications, and whole-of-government procurement agreements to create clean, quality, and valuable data and outcomes for the public?


Join us at the complimentary Data Management and Analytics National Insights Virtual Event, to benchmark with peers, open fresh perspectives and continue contributing to the realisation of the national potential of data for a better public service and learn something new whether you are currently data-aware and heading toward proficiency in BI tracking, or already gaining momentum with data-driven decision making, ready to scale.
