Public Sector ICT Forum sets date for next event
The next edition of the event that brings together C-level public sector IT professionals, the Public Sector ICT (PSICT) Forum, will make its return as a webinar on 16 July, it’s been announced.
Organised by ITWeb Brainstorm in association with MTN Business, the PSICT Forum was initiated in September 2016 as a platform for public sector ICT decision-makers to engage and discuss topics that are key to innovation in public service delivery.
The forum is also an opportunity for ICT executives to detail how they are digitally reinventing their organisations in order to stay ahead of digital transformation, as well as the role of the public sector in advancing digital inclusion and economic growth.
While the April chapter of the forum was hosted in hybrid form, the upcoming event will be entirely virtual, to comply with social distancing rules amid the rising COVID-19 cases across the country.
It will be held under the theme: “Collaboration as a driver for digital transformation in the public sector”.
The free event will feature a keynote address to be delivered by Ravi Pillay, MEC for economic development, tourism and environmental affairs in the KwaZulu-Natal provincial government.
There will also be a panel discussion, with Lunga Madlala, chief digital officer at the eThekwini Municipality; Thandeka Ellenson, CEO of Moses Kotane Institute; and Moshe Motlohi, Durban Port manager at the Transnet National Ports Authority.
