2-day Training | 14 & 15 September 2022 | 10 AM – 2 PM AEST | Online

Training Overview

Developing dynamic architectures that respond to constant change and support digital transformation

Exciting new IT tools and applications are becoming increasingly utilised to enable greater efficiency outcomes within government organisations. But with the use of these transformational, and often disruptive, systems comes the quandary of implementation of sustainable infrastructure.

To achieve the entire organisational benefit, a clearer grasp of current economic and social environments and how these will inevitably affect business models is needed. In order to prepare organisations’ for constant change, and to support their evolving digital transformation strategies, they must be prepared for the impact of innovation on architecture, and therefore become ready and dynamic in response.

With this in mind, we have put together this Strategy Frameworks and Architecture for IT Managers Leading Transformative Projects online training – to arm professionals working within public sector IT and technology divisions with applicable tools and strategies ready to navigate disruptive environments and adapt systems and strategies accordingly.
