What is digital transformation in government?
Digital transformation in government (DTIG) focuses on policy, technology and technology-based projects that can (or have) transformed the way government works and the way it interacts with citizens.
The DTIG blog series
Since February 2016 we’ve been blogging every fortnight, bringing you both more in-depth pieces and shorter blogs on all areas of DTIG. Our aim is to produce a must-read resource that helps public sector employees in Australia deliver real benefits to citizens.
The series is a reflection of our commitment to the open government movement and our own open ethos — an example of how we give back to the community. We love producing these pieces...researching what’s happening here and overseas in terms of DTIG to bring you the best examples possible. We've covered everything from smart cities and artificial intelligence to blockchain technology, focusing on Aussie policy, research, and case studies (from Australia and overseas).
The DTIG series delivers many benefits to our government clients and the public service sector in general. Our DTIG series helps you keep up to date with:
Real projects achieving real digital transformation in government
How governments are connecting to people via the delivery of great digital services and content
Relevant policies and reports, highlighted and summarised for you
Technological advances and trends that can help you deliver on your agency’s digital goals
Have you got a case study/idea for us?
We're always on the lookout for great DTIG case studies and topics, so if there's something you think we should blog about, feel free to contact Salsa using the form at the bottom of this page.
