“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don’t much care where--" said Alice.
"Then it doesn’t matter which way you go," said the Cat.
"--so long as I get SOMEWHERE," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh, you’re sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough.”

The direction the government is asking it's agencies to take is to becoming quite clear - ensure the investment is optimised and that it is achieving the outcomes expected.  The New Zealand government data, information and solution landscapes are needing to change  more rapidly and with increasingly higher impact and expectations.  How is Enterprise Architecture relevant in this environment? What part will Enterprise Architecture play in developing the changes necessary to develop  increasingly responsive and innovative government agencies?

This will be a thought-provoking panel session with

  • John Kananghinis, Chief Enterprise Architect, Inland Revenue
  • Neil Brown, Lead Enterprise Architect, New Zealand Transport Agency
  • Rosemary McGrath, Chief Architect, Statistics New Zealand
  • James Collier, Government Enterprise Architect, DIA

Venue: National Library, lower ground meeting room, entrance on Aitken Street. 

A light lunch and tea/coffee will be served at 12pm. No charge, attendance is open to government staff and contractors in agencies. 

RSVP to Ros website@govis.org.nz and please advise any dietary preferences for lunch-catering purposes. Thanks!

RSVPS will open in early November to attendees from all government agencies.

Open Government is about an ethical, honest and fair relationship between citizens and their government. New Zealand is now running several initiatives to support and strengthen the government-citizen relationship. 


At this session we will be talking about the policies and implementations going on and whether New Zealand now has a coherent open government programme.      


Venue: Ministry of Social Development Auditorium, Level 3 Bowen State Building, Bowen Street
