In 2020 ALGIM worked in partnership with members of our international network LOLA across NZ, Australia, UK, Canada, and Europe to collect information to produce the first whitepaper on Technology Trends in 2020 across local government.
ALGIM were asked to contribute to the same research exercise in Dec 2020 to understand the 2021 trends. The CIOs in public sector organisations identified the following primary priorities for 2021 : Cloud computing , IoT, AI, Cyber security , Low-code development and Video conferencing. Secondary priorities, for 2021 and beyond are 5G networks, Drones, Driverless cars and Gamification.
The survey canvassed the opinions of local government ICT professionals where New Zealand was a significant contributor. The 2021 report is now available for our members to view here SOCTIM 2021 Public Sector Digital Trends.
