Government Data Management

Driving more value from public data assets

Government services

Australian government departments and agencies are increasingly focused on driving more value from their data.

Many agencies are appointing a Chief Data Officer or other data leaders – with a mandate for change and innovation around data and data culture. The aim? To create gold standard, high quality data regimes that eliminate data quality issues, delays, duplication, and manual labour.

This is no easy task.
