Free Public Lecture
The Lab, Level 2 of the Digital Studio, West Wing
Public sector leaders know that modern analytics and data-driven technologies lead to better decisions and outcomes. As governments embrace the potential 21st century data-driven decision making, they face challenges such as integrating new technology systems, modernising their workforce and building public trust. The Victorian Centre for Data Insights exists to transform the way the Victorian Government uses data to deliver better policies and services. This presentation will discuss the challenges and opportunities that governments face in this increasingly important space.
