Sunshine Coast Region Digital Transformation

Sunshine Coast Business Council (SCBC) has been working with Government, Councils and industry in creating awareness of how to maximise the economic benefit to be derived from the regional communications infrastructure, including the international submarine cable and how drive digital transformation can enable economic growth.

SCBC conducted a conference in June 2019 on the international submarine cable with a focus on digitalisation and fast data.  This was followed by a workshop in September 2019, with stakeholders from business and all levels of government. This workshop culminated in the development of a draft action plan which was endorsed by all stakeholders involved. SCBC had commenced implementing the draft action plan by working with the stakeholders to establish relevant Digital Transformation panels (DTP) to cover the themes featured in the draft action plan. It is intended that these panels will oversee the implementation of the action plan to deliver a high level strawman in relation to Digital Transformation for the Sunshine Coast Region.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, this work is temporarily proceeding at slower pace and will resume as soon as circumstances allow.
