Technology is changing at an increasingly rapid rate and directly impacting users’ expectations of products and services.
Data is driving much of this change. Organizations need to leverage data to drive innovation and meet changing customer expectation by surfacing opportunities across existing processes, supply chain and distribution.
Similarly in government, access to critical data can be leveraged to better inform decision making and have a macro-level impact on citizens through improved service delivery. As the amount of data continues to grow, it provides unique insights and opportunities for governments to more efficiently and better serve their citizens.
Data can both help improve a company’s bottom line and shift the way people engage government in meaningful and endless ways.
However, the challenge with huge amounts of data and a constantly shifting technological landscape, is how to use it and where to start. We will hear from industry experts and government leaders on how they are using technology and data to drive digital transformation within their organizations.
