Council is also eyeing the GIS spatial capability arena. "This involves huge amounts of data and huge amounts of analytics. Having a hybrid environment, which we'll have - partly cloud and core services in our own data centre - will provide a really good model for delivering services moving forward."
Telehealth is also on the radar, he said, explaining the region has a large Indigenous population - particularly on the islands - and an ageing population.
""We have quite a diverse range of stakeholders in our community. We have an ageing demographic so health is very important to us as well, and the integration of health services - telehealth, specifically, for our islands. We want to make sure that we can work with Queensland Health and other areas to provide support and enabling services as well."
