I recently returned from the Gartner Symposia in Orlando and in Barcelona, and I am now at the Gartner Symposium in Gold Coast.
In both Orlando and Barcelona I had the opportunity to discuss cloud computing and the use of social media in government, as well as how to use and manage technology to make governments more affordable and sustainable. These look like top concerns also here in Australia.
It seems to me that now more than ever is the time to re-imagine the role of IT both in the public and the private sector. For those who weren’t able to attend this year’s Symposium/ITxpo 2011 and missed the keynote, check out the video highlights and related research here.
