“The Minister for Government Services said the Australian government is making progress in achieving its 2025 digital transformation goal.
Minister for Government Services Stuart Robert has announced the federal government has started to undertake work to build a single, whole-of-government technology architecture as part of its digital transformation strategy to make all its services digital by 2025.
In his address at an Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) event in Canberra on Friday afternoon, Robert detailed how the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has created a taskforce with the largest “technology shops” in government — Defence, Home Affairs, ATO, and Government Services — to explore what the technology architecture could potentially look like.
“It will start by identifying critical technology capabilities that support broad business outcomes and progressively develop a more nuanced view of strategic capabilities across government,” he explained.
“This will help us understand both the common functions we need to perform across the whole of government as well as discrete capabilities specific to the business needs of individual agencies.”
Robert said the taskforce will then able to identify what platforms the government should invest in.”
