More than 20 presentations from government and private sector participants were heard at the Information Technology symposium today organised by the department of Finance and Planning.
The presentations range from e-government, digital skills and training, networks and connectivity and cyber security and the final session is on e-commerce, e-frameworks and strategies.
One of the organisers Frank Sioneholo told BCN News that the symposium is intended to engage with government and private sector stakeholders involved in the information technology sector and to share ideas on developing IT development in Niue.
Sioneholo said that one of the issues that they will be discussing is government data storage and security and the symposium will provide the opportunity for stakeholders to discuss options on how to improve on their current systems.
He said that what they hope to achieve from this symposium is “To develop a strategy and a roadmap to help guide us as we move into the future. We have some new developments coming in like the Manatua cable and how we can best utilise those opportunities”.
Key presenters from the private sector include Emani Lui of local service provider Kaniu, Rock Steady’s Glen Jackson, Dess Sioneholo of Okakoa Multimedia systems and Roy Pavihi and Jovaan Hekesi for SOE Telecom Niue.
