INDUSTRY: PUBLIC SECTOR

OVERVIEW

More and more public sector organisations are adopting a digital-first approach. Faced with increasingly demanding constituent expectations, only those capable of delivering fast, innovative services will thrive.

Usher in a new digital culture of speed and innovation. In this exciting climate, the cloud has emerged as your engine for innovation. Discover the possibilities of a digital-first approach and reduce costs, enable modernisation, maintain security, and improve service delivery.

We'll also host our Public Sector Ideation & Design Methodology Workshop where you can join Oracle and key customers from Government agencies to discuss and share the many opportunities and challenges that Government digital transformation presents. Attendees will include representatives from state agencies, federal agencies, public healthcare and local councils. At the end of the workshop, we aim to identify some real use case concepts that could be developed into design prototypes in future workshops.
