Event Overview

Proactive Adaptation to Consistent & Continuous Change in Technology

The COVID-19 pandemic acted as an exemplar of, “out of necessity, comes innovation”, as organizations were forced to implement innovative work processes that did not exist prior to the pandemic restrictions. Such changes have now led to the successful implementation of
new permanent processes that have been proven to provide greater convenience and efficiency.

Consistent and continuous change is inevitable, especially seen in the Information Technology community as new technological trends and
advancements are introduced. Public sector leaders must be proactive in keeping up with this pace of change to ensure that they establish a
solid strategy and structure to continue to achieve their organizational goals. Emerging technology should be leveraged in advance to address
crucial business parameters such as security, data protection, efficiency, productivity, and service delivery to modernize technology systems.


Join us at the Public Sector Network’s Innovation and Information Technology Q2 National Insights Summer Edition virtual event and learn from experts on how to successfully embrace technological change. The event will highlight a new era of digital transformation to employ information technology and build trust among internal and external organizational stakeholders.

Business Led Technology vs Projects Led by Centralized Technology

Government departments and agencies are often embarking on digital modernization where technology services are provided centrally.
Digital development that is client or user-centred favours strong engagement and leadership in the form of product manager, product
owner and user representative as part of business-led technology development and continuous improvement.

  • What are your experiences with business led technology projects in contrast to projects led by centralized technology organizations?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a centralized delivery of digital solutions?
  • How is cloud technology prompting changes in digital delivery for your department, agency, business unit?
  • What organizational or cultural barriers have you experienced in business led digital modernization? How can these be addressed?
