Digital Government

Digital government has moved the public sector to entirely new ways of delivering programs, services and regulation. There is almost no area of government that has not been challenged, reimagined and ultimately, transformed by new technologies and the growth in data over the last decade.

National-scale platforms that connect, authenticate and deliver services are creating access and convenience for customers, but come loaded with complexity and challenges to adoption.

AI is emerging as the accepted successor to traditional analytics, even as community social licence, ethical risk and emerging legal frameworks create new uncertainties for decision-makers in all sectors.

Workforce is having to rapidly shift culture and mindset, embracing agile ways of working and building fluency in engagement, data literacy and collaboration as entry costs to the new economy.

Government policy, service delivery and compliance operations now rely on data, automation and joined-up workflows that may sit across government agencies, governmental tiers or even beyond the public sector – and this is intensifying year-on-year.

Trust and social licence are dynamic, with data security and privacy vying for the community’s chief source of concern and with trust in institutions continuing to erode while anxiety about continuing global shocks continues to rise.
