While the COVID-19 pandemic and persisting ramifications of the bushfires forced the Australian Government to deliver a swift pivot to digital for citizens to access information, support and solutions about their lives and livelihoods, it was an opportunity to see what Australia is actually capable of in the digital space. More connected than ever before, the Federal Budget for 2021-22 has now laid the foundations for Australia to be a leading digital economy and society by 2030.

The momentum created by Australian citizens and businesses having to rapidly embrace digital technologies and thriving in this digital revolution is something the Government does not want to surrender. Off the back of digital transforming services implemented in transport, health and finance sectors, the 2022 FST Government Australia conference will address the next steps in the Government’s digital strategy. We’ll bring together esteemed thought leaders and technologists from around the globe to explore the Federal Government’s digital innovation pipeline, its pledge to transform government services and how it will build on digital skills and capabilities brought to light during the pandemic.

Join us where we’ll explore:
• The Federal Government’s post-COVID recovery plan, fuelled by tech and digital strategies
• Cloud migration and the shift into multi-cloud environments
• Data governance and privacy mandates
• The Australian digital revolution of services and information for citizens
• Artificial intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and automation strategies to make the leap to augmented, predictive government
• How Australia aims to lead the way for other global digital economies and societies
• Omnichannel services and platforms
