Event Overview

Building a Smart Public Sector with Data Collaboration and Automation

Recently the public sector has become increasingly aware of the potential value that can be gained from leveraging data as a strategic asset, but the sector still struggles with effective methods to extract true value from insights, while maintaining privacy and security.

To help optimise and evolve your organisation’s data journey, we’ve put together the Data Innovation Roadshow which explores how we can further create public sector modern data divisions in Australia, as the role of storytelling and the imperative of public trust continues to drive data use and analysis to new levels.
