Program to deliver on the areas of data and analytics, cloud, cyber security
CeBIT Australia will welcome 300 leading technology suppliers to the exhibition floor, while the new streamlined conference program features over 50 expert speakers across four dedicated streams.
The four curated programs highlight current industry trends and challenges facing the business technology community and showcase digital case studies from the world’s largest corporations, across eGovernment, Big Data and Analytics, Cloud and Cyber Security.
The comprehensive program will see five international thought leaders speak, including Tom Read, chief digital and information officer at the Ministry of Justice, UK; Johnson Poh, head of data science at DBS Bank; Winston Chew, director, regional information security officer at GSK Singapore; Binoo Joseph, head of technology at Tesco; and keynote speaker Greg Clark, CEO at Symantec, speaking in a dedicated Cyber Security presentation.
“In many ways, government is no different from any other industry,” said Read. “We are facing digital disruption as users start to demand online channels to interact with government, budget cuts force us to look at our processes, and new technologies like machine learning start to mature.
“How we differ though is our users can’t choose not to use our services. For governments to deliver truly effective technology, the user’s needs must be considered and delivered first and foremost. Digital is becoming the golden thread between ministers, policy officials, and operational front-line agencies.
“I look forward to sharing at CeBIT Australia how the UK Ministry of Justice is transforming an 800 year-old justice system, bringing agile digital service delivery to prisons, courts and tribunals, while questioning how this changes the very nature of justice.”
Niall Blair, NSW Minister for Trade and Industry, said digital technology continues to grow in importance.
“The 2018 conference program promises to deliver a keen focus on the fast-evolving areas of data and analytics, cloud, cyber security and eGovernment to help take our technology sector forward,” he said.
CeBIT Australia will take place on May 15-17 at the International Convention Centre Sydney.
