Collaboration

We work closely with public sector agencies to ensure that information and communications technology (ICT) in government supports the delivery of high quality services.

Cloud Community of Practice 

The Cloud Community of Practice is an agency led collaboration forum designed to encourage agency engagement activities, knowledge sharing and information exchange. Its purpose is to build a shared understanding of digital transformation, share information, skills and learnings, and identify opportunities for collaboration across the sector. 

The Cloud Community of Practice will deliver seminars on varied topics from cloud adoption and tools, data analytics and digital transformation initiatives from industry leaders and other Government agencies to drive digital transformation in the WA Public Sector.  

The Cloud Community of Practice forums are coordinated by the Digi Gov Committee, a cross sector group. The objectives of the committee are to: 

  •  Promote collaboration across the WA Public Sector; 
  • Facilitate information sharing and knowledge transfer between agencies and industry; 

  • Encourage engagement and deepen relationships with agencies to improve visibility of business and technology trends 

  • Discuss and review lessons learnt to address possible shortcomings of Government processes and issues that hinder digital transformation; 

  • Communicate important updates and initiatives from the Office of Digital Government; and 

  • Support implementation of the Whole of Government Digital strategy.

These portals are strictly limited to Western Australian Government staff only. They are secure environments and all members are required to deal with all documents and information posted in the strictest confidence.
