Helping industry and businesses harness technology

We are supporting businesses and industries to develop and adopt secure digital technologies for Australia’s future.

Digital technologies are becoming part of our everyday lives. These technologies are providing new opportunities to create jobs, drive economic growth and boost competiveness.

Delivering a modern digital economy

Our department is helping to deliver a modern, digital economy through Australia’s Digital Economy Strategy. This whole-of-government strategy envisions Australia as a leading digital economy and society by 2030.

We are supporting this vision in 3 areas:

  • putting the foundations in place to grow the digital economy, including supporting cyber security
  • building capabilities in emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain and quantum computing
  • lifting the digital capabilities of small to medium business enterprises (SMEs) and supporting a dynamic and emerging tech sector

Advancing Australia’s future technologies

We released Australia’s Tech Future in 2018 to show how Australia can maximise the opportunities of technological change. This strategy set clear outcomes, identified opportunities and areas that need further focus, and outlined government actions.
