Description

Registration from 5 pm, Presentation at 5:30, Networking canapes and drinks from 6:30.

Building the Business Case for Managing Data

The growth and abundance of data over the last 10 years has changed the nature of competition in the private sector. This has driven companies to invest in machine learning and AI to extract the maximum value of their data holdings and gain the competitive edge they need. Why then is it so difficult to build the case for data in government? The ACT Government has recently established the Centre of Data Excellence to build data analytics capabilities across the ACT public service. Join this session to learn how we developed a business case for data including:

  • The journey from inception to budget approval
  • Convincing the stakeholders
  • Connecting data management and analytics to business outcomes
    The hurdles we faced
  • The lessons we learned
  • The successes we had

Phil Crawford, Digital Delivery Manager, Office of the Chief Digital Officer, ACT Government will speak about how they developed a business case for data.
