Embracing a Digital Future
Queensland Briefing 2017-18
Guest Speaker: Andrew Mills
2 August, Brisbane
The Queensland Budget is the major determinant of ICT spending by agencies, and 2017-18 will be no different. But budget papers are not the only influencing factor of future investments, with trigger events, like the imminent release of the state’s new ICT strategy, also shaping decision-making.
As the government pushes ahead with its digital transformation agenda, investments in cloud, cybersecurity and data analytics are set to continue.
Mounting pressure on key service agencies, like Queensland Health, is prompting experimentation with new and existing technologies to help streamline operations.
Queensland is also influenced by broader changes in the market, with agile procurement mechanisms introducing 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.
