SYDNEYJuly 27, 2018 — Governments around the world are being asked to provide greater digital services to citizens and improve their online experiences and interactions with government agencies.

However, a recent Senate enquiry* into Digital Transformation within the Australian Federal Government highlighted several key challenges that agencies are facing on their transformation journey. These include cyber security, privacy, user diversity, systems architecture, leadership and skilling.

These issues and more will be discussed at the GovInnovate Summit to be held on the 9-11 October at the National Convention Centre, Canberra. Hannover Fairs Australia, the organisers of CEBIT Australia, are hosting the Summit and Program Manager Edyta Bednorz highlighted this year’s key speakers.

Another highlight will be Adrian Turner, the CEO of Data61, presenting on how Australia can grasp the $315bn opportunity that digital innovation is estimated to bring to our economy over the next decade.

There are over fifty presenters including Genevieve Bell, Distinguished Professor, Australian National University, Director, 3A Institute, and Senior Fellow, IntelMohan Aiyaswami, Chief Technology Officer, Department of DefenceJerome Reid, Group Captain, Director Plan Jericho, Royal Australian Air Force and Anthony Murfett, Deputy Head, Australian Space Agency to name but a few.
