This annual event provides a valuable opportunity to bring together key stakeholders to gain insight into the government’s objectives for digital transformation and hear directly from those responsible for driving this forward. Taking place as a fully in person event, reconnect and network with your peers and colleagues, key senior policy makers and decision takers. The conference also features a sold out exhibition zone featuring some of Northern Ireland’s leading expert solution providers.
As part of the national Covid-19 response, the move towards digital public services gathered pace to ensure they could deliver for citizens. Looking forward, any transformation agenda should continue to meet this increased demand and growing expectations of the public, delivering more personalised and responsive user experiences. For many organisations this will mean moving from a tactical pandemic response to a permanent delivery model and refocusing IT and digital strategies to drive the post Covid recovery.
With the majority of NICS and public sector workers still working remotely or adopting a formal hybrid approach, dependence on digital technology has never been greater with a growing need to enhance digital skills and build organisations’ digital capability. While remote working can offer great benefits, it also exposes new cyber risks that need to be managed.
The need to continually drive forward digital inclusion is also a critical issue – while the pandemic caused a surge in digital interaction with public services, it also exacerbated the digital divide for those who remain offline.
This conference will feature a range of expert speakers who will talk about their digital transformation journey and look ahead to what’s next as we look to a new work future and collaborate to build future-proof organisations.
