All levels of government face substantial deficits, changing legislative mandates and increasing demands for services and support. As a result, and to continue to deliver effective programs and services, Canada's federal government departments and agencies are transforming the way they operate.
On February 16, 2012, IBM invites government executives and IT professionals to hear how government department and agencies can reduce costs while improving overall performance and program outcomes by:
> Consolidating and optimizing key infrastructures and applications
> Learning how to turn information into insight by leveraging IBM software solutions for data management, enterprise content management and advanced analytics
> Better managing government resources and assets
> Driving more productivity through improved collaboration and a modernized workplace
This complimentary, one-day event will provide industry perspectives, best practices, networking opportunities and technical sessions highlighting how IBM software and hardware solutions improve performance and reduce cost.
Keynote speakers are:
Alison Brooks, PhD, Research Director, Public Sector, IDC Canada; and Robert P. Taylor, CEO, Institute of Public Administrators of Canada
