ACT Government Digital Strategy 2016–19

The ACT community lives in an increasingly digital world. It is a world defined by possibility and aspiration; disruption and renewal; pace and impatience. Technology has become an integral part of our lives and our culture. We are intimately bound to it in a way that transcends the historical relationships between man and machine.

What is Digital?

Digital describes a new way of doing things. Deliberately challenging and disruptive of conventional practice, it is the use of technology to effect radical change. It is about innovation, creating value, ‘in real time’, removing unnecessary costs and activities. It places high value on the creation and use of data. But more than anything—and more than ever before, it places the customer at the centre of its vision.
