Itomic en-route to Transform 2017

March 3, 2017

Itomic is headed to transform 2017 in March to sharpen our senses and stay on top of the upcoming trends in Australian government digital services.

It’s a 2 day conference focused on the business of transforming and (obviously!) improving the delivery of government services, principally by digital means. The venue is the prestigious National Museum of Australia, with workshops and presentations on March 29th and 30th, 2017.

We are attending for two main reasons:

  1. Itomic is privileged to work with a number of government clients, some of whom no doubt we’ll enjoy meeting at the conference. It’s our interest and opportunity to keep bang up-to-date with all the latest ideas, trends, initiatives, challenges, etc. that are impacting, or will, impact our friends in government.
  2. We’re taking the side opportunity for a mini “Itomic retreat” in Canberra. Key personnel from our Perth and Melbourne offices will be there to strategise Itomic’s performance and direction, both independently from, and including, what we learn from the conference.

Speakers are both domestic and international, including:

  • Ben Holliday, lead designer for the UK’s largest government department, the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP)
  • Dan Sheldon, technology consultant, and author of the “Self-Harm Playbook” (how IT in government tends to self-harm!)
  • Ariel Kennan, Director of Design and Product at the NYC Mayor’s office.

All these speakers know that digital transformation in the modern age is necessarily an ongoing process. It’s never “set and forget”. The more we can all get this message out there, the better.

Are you in government, or a service provider to government, like Itomic? As the website says, “Transform is designed for everyone involved in government transformation: service designers, Web designers, front end developers, product owners, product designers, UX experts, user researchers, web, interaction designers, agile and transformation coaches in all levels of government, and independent professionals and agencies who work with them.

We hope to see you there!
