Technology has made its way into the lives of many people across the globe.
In Australia, technology has been a hot topic in recent weeks, with some people wondering what the future holds.
The government is trying to answer that question, with a range of new policies aimed at making it easier for people to start and run businesses.
The new Digital Transformation Strategy has the government looking at the next generation of digital services that are expected to make the economy more efficient and responsive.
In the latest of a series of reports, the Government Accountability Office has also released a series on digital technology, looking at what will happen to the industry in the next decade.
Here’s a look at what we know so far:The government has announced $3.6 billion for the Digital Transformation Fund, to be set up by the Minister for Communications and Information Technology, Brendan Nelson.
The fund will focus on digital infrastructure upgrades across government departments and agencies, including the Digital Network, Digital Services Australia, Digital Transformation Agency, the Digital Governance Framework and the Digital Innovation and Technology Hub.
In 2018, the budget will also allocate $2.9 billion to a new Strategic Digital Investment Fund.
This will support the development of digital infrastructure investments that will drive Australia’s economy into the future.
The digital services sector is expected to generate about $20 billion in revenue over the next five years, with an average annual growth rate of about 1 per cent, according to a report by the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACUTU).
The funding will support investment in the digital services industry.
The Government Accountability report says the Government is “deeply concerned about the potential for digital services to be a catalyst for job loss and disruption” in the future and that the digital infrastructure investment is needed to help build a strong economy.
Digital services are often referred to as the “third rail of the economy”, with many people thinking of their digital life as being a distant memory.
However, the digital technologies industry has been experiencing a lot of growth in recent years.
In 2016, the Australian Bureau of Statistics reported digital services in Australia grew by 12 per cent to $7.9 trillion, with digital services as a whole growing by 12.3 per cent.
This is still well behind the global average of about 18 per cent growth.
The Australian Bureau is also forecasting a significant increase in the number of digital devices, particularly smart TVs, smartphones and tablets.
This year, the industry is expected increase to almost 5 million devices in 2020, up from 5 million in 2016.
Digital technologies is expected be a key area of the government’s focus.
According to the Digital Services Association, the government has already made a number of significant investments in digital technologies and infrastructure, including funding for the National Broadband Network and the NBN, as well as supporting digital initiatives such as the Digital Australia and Digital Transformation.
