Refining IT Infrastructure Initiatives to Further
Aotearoa’s Digital Strategy

Wednesday, 13 April 2022 | 9am – 11am NZST | Online

Event Overview

Enabling a Technology-Driven Government

The adoption of innovative IT technologies within the NZ public sector is accelerating rapidly, with exciting new tools and applications becoming increasingly utilised to enable greater efficiency outcomes within government organisations.

However, as the adoption of these modern processes enhances organisation-wide IT systems, the question of implementation and sustainable infrastructure will inevitably become more pressing – especially as we look to continuously build digital skills and capabilities to advance processes, citizen services, and showcase measurable public outcomes.

To discuss ways of prioritising these advancements in the most cost-effective, holistic, and publicly viable way, we’ve put together the first Virtual Event in our 2022 Innovation & ICT Community National Insights series for New Zealand. Tune in to hear case studies from peers and discuss how to accelerate the public sector’s understanding of what fruit modern, digitally enabled, and integrated IT infrastructure strategies could yield for Aotearoa’s public sector.
