Virtual Event: Big Data & Actionable Analytics

New Zealand

Leveraging data science to lead transformation in the public sector

Wednesday, 14 April 2021
9 AM - 11 AM NZST

Agenda Overview

Much of daily life now exists to serve what is being called The Technological Economy – of which data is the new and valued currency. While gleaning public data is nothing new, the last decade has seen the rise of modern tools and techniques, as well as new sources and forms of data, that are changing the landscape for planning and innovation.

Efficient use of data is the missing link that could see population insights be leveraged in ways that will improve service delivery, national resiliency, and citizen outcomes in New Zealand. 

The complimentary Big Data & Actionable Analytics virtual event will help government thought leaders across New Zealand better understand their evolving technology landscape and understand how progressive and ethical data analysis can be harnessed to derive value for all as we dive further into living with increased dependence on digitisation and data.
