This was the title of my presentation at the #ITx2014 conference yesterday.
I have embedded the slideshow. In the next few days I will try and put up a version with an audio commentary reflecting what I said on the day.
Went to the IITP Breakfast at The Wellesley this morning to hear Revenue Minister Todd McClay talk about the reasons behind the IRD Transformation project.
An informative presentation on some of the thinking behind the major programme IRD are proposing.
It will be interesting to see if the words translate into execution once the programme moves into later phases.
I attended an interesting presentation at lunchtime today. The presenter was Alison Schulze the recently appointed Director of ICT Assurance at Department of Internal Affairs. Ms Schulze reports via Tim Occleshaw, Deputy Chief Executive – Service and System Transformation, Government Chief Technology Officer to Colin MacDonald, DIA CEO and Government Chief Information Officer. The remit of Ms Schulze is across government and not confined to just DIA.
Initial indications from the session today are that government is, at long last, making serious efforts to get to grips with the issue of assurance based on a business perspective, not just an IT one. However, it is as stated today very much work in progress.
I hope to be able to write in more detail on this in the near future.
