Government Departments have some of the most interesting and complex datasets along with some of the largest computing systems in Australia. Just like private industry Government is starting to use this data for analytics, legacy systems are being replaced with new cloud based technologies and paper forms and manual processed are being digitised – these are just some of the areas where our Digital Delta team has assisted our clients to solve problems that directly impact Australian.
