Thursday, 28 July 2022 | 11am – 1:10pm AEST | Online

Event Overview

Cutting through Complexity to Deliver Clarity for Actionable Insights

Organisations on the data transformation journey are faced with ever-increasing complexity and competing priorities. To manage data decisions in this environment comes with reinforced responsibility to ensure the quality of data inputs, governance framework design and implementation, and maturity of the workforce.

This quarter, we will be exploring the specific challenges and hallmarks of effective governance, leadership, and culture, to consistently translate data into a valuable business asset. The role of metadata, agility development, and proactive data stewardship in the data environment comes in when integrating the data strategy with both the IT and organisational strategies. In addition, we will be delving into the important user-centric aspects of information management including privacy and preserving the right to access information in digital government.

Join us at the complimentary “Revolutionising Data Governance, Information Management & Data Strategy in Government” virtual event to stand for the realisation of data as a strategic asset. Let us come together with collective wisdom and collaboration to advance the effectiveness of our digital government for greater innovation, societal and citizen benefit.
