According to Australia's Digital Pulse 2017, the Foundation for Young Australians predicts that 90% of Australia’s workforce will need some level of digital literacy in the next two to five years.
The rapid pace of technological transformation means that technologies once considered futuristic are now increasingly applied and used across the Australian workforce. These technologies will not only drive economic growth but will also see businesses seek new models to improve operational efficiency, customer interactions and the quality of products and services. To fast-track our nation’s digital transformation, and ensure the ICT skills base meets demand, we need a clear strategy and dedicated investment focus in this area.
Reimagination 2017 will feature local and international leaders from the technology industry through to the political sphere - providing practical knowhow, critical thinking and their views on prominent issues facing our nation – and how we can flourish in the digital future.
