About the event

The MAV Technology Local Government forum “Datalicious!” will be held on Friday 7 December 2018 in the New York Bakery at Sovereign Hill, Ballarat. The day-long program will discuss all things data, and will include council case studies on IoT networks, data insights, open data, data lakes, security, standards and ethics – and how to use hacks, jams and Smart Cities initiatives in your council. There will also be ample networking opportunities, fueled by great food for morning tea and lunch.

This free event is proudly brought to you by MAV Technology in partnership with Meshed, CSA, Wave1 and Atlas Plato.

Who should attend

This free forum is recommended for people from MAV Technology member councils (that’s most Victorian councils) who want to learn about how data is changing the way council provide services for their communities. It’s not just tech-talk and will be of interest to Councillors, CEOs, Corporate Services Directors, business transformation leaders, customer experience teams; and of course, Information Management, GIS and ICT leaders.
