National Insights – Fall Edition

Event Overview

IT for Smarter, More Efficient, Citizen-Centric Outcomes

All levels of government are increasingly committed to leveraging technology to facilitate a more collaborative end efficient public service. To achieve this, CIOs and senior public sector executives must get to grips with how to fully navigate and implement the latest technologies to drive success. Strategies and operations must also shift accordingly, or organizations risk undermining the quality of government services and capacity to deliver value to their citizens.

By ensuring a strategic, and holistic approach to information technology investments and implementation, the public sector can improve service delivery, ensure that networks and information are more secure, and deliver better value for money.

The Fall edition of National Insights in IT will probe the plethora of technological solutions available and key strategies for improving operational efficiency to drive successful technological implementation and customer-focused, cost-efficient outcomes.
