Brendan Hooper

Coordinator Information Systems, Rockhampton Regional Council

I am the Coordinator of the Information Systems Unit at Rockhampton Regional Council which incorporates Information Technology and Records Management functions. With over 25 years IT experience in local government, I have seen many changes and disruptions. From the transition from monochrome mainframe terminals to PCs, right through to the proliferation of mobile devices.

I have been involved in numerous projects transitioning manual processes into information systems that provide efficiencies and more readily available information for decision making.

The way that Council conducts its business internally and externally with the public has changed dramatically over years and continues to do so. The continued push towards the paperless office and the flexible access to systems in a secure manner continue to be high priority items.

I am excited to share my perspective on digital transformation journeys.
