What is digital transformation in government?

Digital transformation in government (DTIG) focuses on policy, technology and technology-based projects that can (or have) transformed the way government works and the way it interacts with citizens.

The DTIG blog series

Since February 2016 we’ve been blogging every fortnight, bringing you both more in-depth pieces and shorter blogs on all areas of DTIG. Our aim is to produce a must-read resource that helps public sector employees in Australia deliver real benefits to citizens.

The series is a reflection of our commitment to the open government movement and our own open ethos an example of how we give back to the community. We love producing these pieces...researching what’s happening here and overseas in terms of DTIG to bring you the best examples possible. We've covered everything from smart cities and artificial intelligence to blockchain technology, focusing on Aussie policy, research, and case studies (from Australia and overseas).

Are blockchain-powered payments in our future?

Blockchain is still in the news and on the agenda for government. A recent Data61 pilot project for NDIS payments was successful, and has longer-term implications for Australia.

Smart cities in Australia

A recent smart cities report shows the current status of smart city rollout across Australia. It also looks at current and future projects, obstacles, open data and elements beyond technology that will enable smart cities, including collaboration. Smart cities are an important part of digital transformation in government.


Digital Transformation in Government Insight #75:
Anti-doping app integrated with GovCMS

Last year the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) developed a new app to help prevent inadvertent doping for Australian athletes. The app allows athletes to look up supplements and check for banned substances, as well as providing other tools such as a way for ASADA to send targeted communications to athletes.


Digital Transformation in Government Insight #74:
Singapore — Building innovation within the public sector

Singapore is a digital leader, with some far-reaching digital initiatives. At the core of its program is an innovation culture, with some practices that could be adopted by other governments.


Digital Transformation in Government Insight #73:
The Australian Digital Council

The Australian Digital Council (ADC) is a late-2018 initiative that brings together federal and state governments to align and progress public data and digital transformation in Australia. They met twice last year (September and December) and have already set up some cross-jurisdictional pilot projects.
