Event Overview

Automating Corporate Services in The New Age Of Business

We are now well into an era of continuous change and instability. Budget constraints, economic recovery, and the driving imperative for the public sector to ‘do more with less’ have accentuated the demands for those working in corporate and procurement specific roles to become more automated, data-driven and intelligence enabled as a result.

With new technologies, processes, and analytic decision-making capabilities, the transformation from being ‘strickly business’ to becoming smarter, collaborative, and integrated functions are fast becoming the dominant strategy for back-offices across Australia.

2022 will continue to challenge the priorities of the public sector, forcing rapid adaptation, advancement, and the need for efficient economic response plans. So, to help optimise and further evolve your department’s business division, we’ve put together this inter-state event to provide a platform for exploring emerging technologies, techniques, and real-world case studies addressing all things related to the enormous responsibilities of the back office.
