Overview

Digital First Govt: Enabling Agile, Secured, Compliant, and Rapidly Scalable Digital Government Services for New Zealand's Public Service and Constituents

Establishing digital resiliency for New Zealand's government agencies will be a crucial theme in 2022. With the shift to remote working and the enabling digital cloud ecosystems, government agencies will not only be challenged to rethink the way they create and deliver digital services, but increasingly, the need to be more accountable for the outcomes achieved the longer-term sustainability of their initiatives. This means that beyond technical competencies, digital government leaders would do well to continually enhance their awareness on the wider digital use and engagement trends, national public policy implications, global privacy compliance and cybersecurity regulations, and talent/skills management capabilities - to name a few. 

Event Overview

Data, cloud, and analytics (e.g., AI, RPA) have all become critical to inclusive economic growth and recovery in the last two years, as we've witnessed. Creating equitable economic possibilities is essential, and the good news is that today's digital-first economy offers enormous opportunities for underrepresented populations. Through a worldwide digital skilling program,  governments, NGOs, and social entrepreneurs and solution providers are collaborating to close the skills gap.

 

We've seen hopeful indicators emerge from COP26, such as a drop in coal consumption and the phase-out of fossil fuel subsidies. Many government organizations are expecting to operate on reduced budgets in the coming years due to mounting safety, security, and regulatory compliance challenges; sustainability impetuses; and socioeconomic constraints (e.g., rising global inflation and supply chain disruptions). Despite this, government organizations globally are now expected to deliver more value-add services at a rate that threatens to outpace their own innate ability to fund, support, and maintain them.

 

This panel will discuss on how can Digital-First Government outcomes be achieved- where concerns around national safety and security are resolved, and at the same time, provide new opportunities for governments to rethink their operational models around sustainable capabilities, and gain self-sufficiency in the long-run.
