Thursday March 2, 2017 Breakfast Seminar

Presentation: Embracing the Modern Mobile Workforce through Digital Transformation

The federal government, like most organizations across Canada, are on a digital journey with digital transformation and mobility as top priorities. Through the IT Strategic Plan and Blueprint 2020, the federal government is engaged in the transformation of business processes and the ways in which people connect and communicate through network consolidation, modernizing workplace technology devices, and supporting a mobile workforce.

Through these transformations, governments are moving away from output-based objectives to outcome-based goals, using key metrics to track and monitor project results. Digital technologies are re-defining how governments interact with their citizens and providing dynamic ways for governments to improve productivity and efficiency, reduce costs, and improve employee/citizen engagement and public service delivery across Canada. The opportunities ahead are both exciting and challenging.

Join Matt Leppanen, Rogers Director of Product Management for Unified Communications, to discuss key trends in digital transformation and the value of mobility and collaboration in next-generation communications. Governments are challenged to effectively engage employees to be more efficient, productive, and work from where and when they need to. Matt will discuss how digital services, mobility, and unified communications can better enable government workforces to improve productivity, efficiency, and service delivery to Canadians.
