Realising the benefits of Cloud in the Public Sector

Cloud Innovation Executive Meeting Series 2021

September 7th — 21st
Melbourne | Wellington | Perth | Sydney | Canberra| Brisbane | Adelaide

Event overview

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and organisations’ efforts to recover, the focus on cloud is increasing across the world. Cloud services present many opportunities, including flexibility, business continuity, spend optimisation, improved collaboration, and scalability.

With cloud innovation considered crucial to both Australia’s economic recovery and prosperity, migrating to the cloud is an inevitable journey. While public sector leaders may recognise the value of cloud technology, for many the adoption remains a challenge based on security and compliance, budgetary realities and existing roadmaps.

Public Sector Network’s Cloud Innovation Executive Meeting Series will bring together an exclusive group of CIOs and key senior attendees to share insights on how government departments can realise the benefits of cloud.
