Embracing a Digital Future
Federal Briefing 2017-18
Guest Speakers: Rona Mellor and Alastair MacGibbon
15 June, Canberra
The Federal Budget is the major determinant of ICT spending by agencies, and 2017-18 will be no different. But with the consolidation of the government’s ICT and digital service delivery functions in September 2016, navigating this environment is entirely new.
Investments in cloud, cybersecurity and data analytics are set to continue as the government pushes ahead with its digital transformation agenda. However, with the efficiency dividend set to climb to its highest in several years during 2017-18, agencies will operate in an unusually constrained fiscal environment.
The market is also changing. Agile procurement mechanisms have introduced fresh competition as multi-year ‘waterfall’ projects fall 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.
