Innovation and IT
National Insights – Summer Edition

Wednesday, 23 February 2022 | 11am – 1:10pm AEDT | Online

Event Overview

Enabling a Technology-Driven Government

As the $1.2 billion invested in Australia’s future through the Digital Economy Strategy continues to build digital skills and capabilities, public sector organisations are prompted to advance their processes, citizen services, and showcase measurable public outcomes.

While public sector leaders may recognise the value of investing in Information and Communications Technology (ICT), for many the adoption remains a challenge based on security, compliance, budgetary realities, and legacy roadmaps.

To discuss ways of navigating these complexities in the most cost-effective, holistic, and publicly viable way, we’ve put together the first Virtual Event in our 2022 Innovation & IT Community National Insights Series. The case studies will unpack strategies on how to accelerate the understanding of what fruit a modern, digitally enabled, and integrated IT focus could yield.
