The use of data to solve complex business and societal challenges is becoming a key advantage for many territories around the world, and Western Australia must ensure that it has the required skills and collaboration to takes advantage of this Рfor the benefit of all Western Australians. 

The vast arrays of data collected by governments and businesses provides an enormous opportunity for Western Australia to develop innovative solutions based on data to address challenges and seek opportunities that will impact us all.
