Microsoft to help NSW Govt pursue digital transformation

The NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation (DFSI) has signed an agreement with Microsoft Australia aimed at accelerating the state government’s digital transformation.

The two partners plan to collaborate on a series of idea sessions aimed at progressing digital transformation across government, according to DFSI Secretary Martin Hoffman.

“Having the invaluable support of Microsoft’s experts will greatly accelerate the government’s digital journey,” he said. “This includes greater collaboration on building a data-centric approach to good government, important cyber, platform and capability development initiatives.”

The announcement came on the same day as the opening of the new Microsoft Technology Centre (MTC) in Sydney.

“This memorandum of understanding will allow us to bring department heads to the MTC where they can see what more can be achieved with digital services, improved efficiencies and good value solutions,” Hoffman said.

“We expect there will be significant positive impact for citizens and businesses as well as operational efficiencies for government.”

It also supports the NSW Government Digital Strategy, which was released in 2017 and outlines the state government’s vision and roadmap for digital transformation.
