Titanic Belfast • Thursday 8th March 2018
Digital disruption is becoming the norm – technology innovation can revolutionise what we can do. Organisations are moving more and more of their processes into the digital space, ranging from back office operations to customer engagement channels that are migrating increasingly online. Northern Ireland’s public sector is undergoing a digital evolution.
The digital evolution is accelerating in response to cost pressures, citizen demand and central government directives. The opportunities presented by embracing innovative technology and information solutions are huge – being able to deliver reliable, accessible and transformative government services to citizens.
As we approach the end of 2017, digital platforms are now becoming the standard business models across many organisations. To keep the pace, we need to assume digital and move towards innovation. However, assuming this is not without its challenges. Citizen expectations are high but very often those who would most benefit are those who are the most digitally excluded. In addition, in order to be a digital business, public sector organisations need to ensure that this is embedded into planning, policy and process – not just something confined to the IT Department. Simply appointing a Chief Digital Officer, with no budget and no clear mandate, is not digital transformation.
This multi-stream conference will feature a range of expert speakers who will talk about their digital transformation journey – from improving back-end processes to cutting edge citizen facing technologies. It will also feature case studies from organisations that have radically changed how services are delivered through the creation of innovative digital platforms.
