Embracing a Digital Future
NSW Briefing 2017-18
Guest Speaker: Damon Rees
18 July, Sydney
Although still the major determinant of ICT spending, the New South Wales Budget is not the only indicator of future government investments. Trigger events, like ICT leadership changes under Gladys Berejiklian’s appointment to premier, are also shaping decision-making.
As a leader in digital government, New South Wales has been an early adopter of key technologies like cloud and data analytics, and with a new digital strategy expected this year, is likely to remain at the fore of government digital transformation.
But as a digital trailblazer, the government has been forced to learn quickly. To keep the doors open to innovation, agile procurement mechanisms have been introduced, and multi-year ‘waterfall’ projects have fallen from favour.
Irrespective of whether you are in government or industry, understanding how to navigate the implications of the 2017-18 budget and the above trigger factors will be imperative for strategic positioning.
Intermedium’s Breakfast Briefing will give you the necessary background to respond to this changing market in the face of:
- Continuing fiscal constraints and getting the most out of Business as usual funding;
- The evolving supplier ecosystem;
- Reality versus hype in agencies’ technologies of choice; and
- The impact of public sector reforms, including procurement and changing governance arrangements.
In addition to addressing these key issues, this briefing will provide networking opportunities for government and industry.
Invest a small amount of your time to breakfast with your peers, network with your business partners, and prepare for 2017-18 and beyond.
