$1.6 billion investment in new technologies sends strong signal about Australian Federal Government’s commitment to digital public services

The Australian Federal Government's recent budget announcement offers some welcome measures for the Australian software sector, particularly small businesses.

The $1.6 billion technology investment boost for small businesses sends a strong and very welcome signal about the Australian Federal Government’s commitment to the journey of digital transformation which we’re seeing across health, care, and wider public services.
Digital technologies have played an indispensable role in giving public services a means of innovation, particularly during the pandemic. As a global leader in public sector software, we’re delighted to help support this journey. With the current tight employment market in IT, getting small businesses to invest in upskilling in this area is a great place to start and garner more interest in the industry.
A truly digitally-enabled public sector will ensure services which are more responsive, more accessible and better able to cope with whatever future challenges we may face.
