Embracing a Digital Future
South Australia Briefing 2017-18
Guest Speaker: senior government speaker to be announced shortly
10 August, Adelaide
Although still the major determinant of ICT spending, the South Australian Budget is not the only indicator of future government investments. Trigger events, like ICT leadership changes at the Department of Premier and Cabinet, are also shaping investment decision-making.
As the government pushes ahead with its digital transformation agenda, investments in cloud, cybersecurity and data analytics are set to continue.
Under a relatively constrained fiscal environment, the government has been forced to focus on innovative solutions to government problems. To keep the doors open to these solutions, 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.
