GOVIS 2016 - Celebrating 25 Years
Thursday 16 - Friday 17 June 2016
2016 will see GOVIS turn 25 and this provides an opportunity to reflect on the constancy of change in the last quarter century and more specifically how disruptive new innovation can be. You'll recall at this year's conference Kevin Noonan from OVUM challenged us around the continuum of change - what level of disruption is required for innovation to occur? He shared the concept of "wiggly" government which is a move toward off-road innovation and taking legacy thinking out of system and process design.
Like many of you, the committee remembers a number of innovations that have caused disruption on their IT environment - whether it is the change in processor technology, the introduction of devices which have reduced in size over time or even the fear created by the potential disruption of Y2K.
The 2016 conference theme for GOVIS 2016 is 'Disruptive Innovation'. As always, GOVIS 2016 will provide a platform to share your experiences with your colleagues across the government sector. In case you need a little enticement, if your presentation is selected for the conference, you'll be invited to attend a free half day "How to be a Great Presenter" training session facilitated by Mindmeld Coaching and free attendance at the conference on the day of your presentation.
