Digital Disruption and Its Impact on Governments
Erica Fensom
Adobe
Head of Government Affairs APAC
New digital technologies have changed the way people communicate. Citizens expect to be able to interact with organisations instantly through social media and mobile tools. This discussion will focus on how government can harness these dramatic changes in the lives of Australians to better engage, serve and inspire them.

The Future of Digital Government
David Nuescheler
Adobe
VP Enterprise Technology
Adobe believes successful digital government can be achieved with a very simple proposition – deliver government services that are so engaging, citizens want to use them. Adobe’s vision for the future of digital government identifies what policymakers and agencies need to do to deliver public services that are personalised and efficient. Making online transactions work for the citizen and adopting a ‘government as a platform’ approach will help governments realise deeper cost savings and drive enhanced public services.

Serving the Social Citizen
Lawrence Mak
Adobe
Senior Product Marketing Manager
Governments all over the world are taking advantage of social media in new and interesting ways. Externally, agencies and departments have a Twitter or Facebook account and New Media teams. Internally, agencies are leveraging social media technology to harvest and redeploy knowledge and concepts, dramatically reducing the time to insight. This session will discuss how agencies are productively leveraging social media to create an engaging, two-way dialogue, and managing their resulting interactions to achieve mission success.

Mobile technology is changing the way citizens find information and interact with services. Fueled by private-sector experiences, citizens are demanding 24x7 access, on any device, to online services such as permit applications, driver's license renewals and tax payments. This session examines how to expand an agency’s breadth of online services while effectively creating, publishing, tracking, managing, and updating its expanding mobile presence.
Michael Jackson
Government on the Go: Bringing Service Access to the Citizen
Michael Jackson
Adobe
Director, Healthcare / Public Sector Strategy
Mobile technology has transformed the way government departments are able to deliver public services. From case workers to city planners, government teams are able to do more of their jobs outside of the office, translating to better services for citizens and increased efficiency. This session examines how to deliver effective tools, training, and workflow processes for government workers out in the community.

Applying Forms Technology to Improve Efficiency and Transform Operations

Senior Director Adobe Experience Manager Forms Products
As the first step in many essential agency operations, forms perform a vital role in your agency’s mission. While traditional simple forms collect and organize much needed information, more advanced forms technology can do so much more, while providing a better user experience for the citizen. Agencies can now seamlessly integrate digital forms—and the document services engine behind it—with a constituent-facing portal to deliver fully automated forms processing and more, across any device, any time. This session will show how today's forms technology can dramatically improve operational efficiency across an agency.

Erica Fensom, Head of Government Affairs APAC, Adobe
Digital technologies are changing how government agencies engage with information, ideas and knowledge. From making internal processes easier to driving citizen self-service, the opportunities for increasing the efficiency dividend are everywhere. While the transition from static content to digital has been relatively straightforward, some government agencies have struggled to change traditional transaction-based services to digital experiences. This discussion with Adobe’s panel of experts will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities for governments in embracing digital government. Learn what governments around the world are doing to help their workforces, businesses and citizens make greater uses of the technology.
