IDC Keynote: Returning to the Next Normal: Strategic IT Priorities for Australia

Linus Lai
Vice President, Software and Services, IDC Asia/Pacific

COVID-19 has disrupted every element of global business and demonstrated why digital transformation is critical. As a recession is now on the cards in Australia, CEOs are faced with a decision – do they follow the traditional path of cost-cutting, or do they take the opportunity to "flatten the curve" by leveraging technology and digitally transforming? Join us to understand IDC’s expectations on technology spending in Australia as well as new IT strategic priorities to emerge from the flattening of the curve. One thing is for certain, never before have entire industries considered what the next normal will look like, and the impact of digital technologies in reshaping their operating models for years to come.

1:00 - 3:00pm | Information Management & Governance Forum

With the world coping to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, the changing nature of work and lifestyle – even prior to the pandemic, the growing challenges of identifying and then protecting personal information and, above all, the ability to determine truth from fiction, the need for strong content management has never been more important. From this swirling information management storm is a growing need to identify, classify and preserve information in more ways than ever before. The good news is that is that we have the automation solution designed to meet all of these information management challenges – its called Content Manager from Micro Focus. Our discussion today will reinforce CM’s global role in helping enterprise – commercial and government – meet the challenges of managing information in an unprecedented time.

The judicial information domain has never been so chaotic; causing massive challenges for judicial organisations but there are unique opportunities to be harvested too. The manner in which judicial organizations manage their information is just as crucial as how they prosecute, defend and run a trial. Today’s modern courtrooms have their processes re-imagined around their most valuable asset, information. This is a double-edged sword that brings both opportunities and challenges. There are many judicial organisations that are hampered by avalanches of information, paralysing processes and devaluing information management practitioners. This discussion proceeds in the form of a story of an information management practitioner running, falling down and waking up and running some more as he navigates the chaotic judicial domain. It inspires practitioners in this field to rethink their roles, re-imagine the future and prepare themselves.
