Fuelling growth and opportunity
The Dataconomy program has been developed in collaboration and with the support of Reinventure and Data Republic.
Dataconomy Sydney is the first in a series of forums and roundtables about the emerging data economy. These will be hosted in other Australian states in early 2019 to ensure that the states, and sections of the business community have an opportunity to contribute to this most important conversation.
The Dataconomy program is designed to bring federal policy-makers, state delivery agencies and regulators into the same room as commercial developers, data analytics academics and political leaders.
The half day Dataconomy Forum intends to identify new opportunities – for building new companies, new industries and creating improved, more targeted government service delivery. A better understood and centrally managed regulatory environment will enable data to be more easily shared, producing economy-productivity gains and unlocking new value streams. The improved use of data also offers government an unprecedented opportunity for delivering improved citizen services at lower cost.
While Australia already has some sophisticated regulatory infrastructure in place in relation to data, these pockets of excellence are spread far and wide across the Commonwealth and between jurisdictions.
