Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Modern intelligence has always been associated with cutting-edge technologies. Whether big data, supercomputers, encryption, or satellites, technology has been seen as offering advantages for intelligence agencies and organisations over competitors and adversaries. What is often overlooked is that it is usually a combination of lots of technologies, systems and people where advantages are gained. This presentation considers some key questions that leaders, operators and analysts need to be asking about intelligence and technology in order to grasp opportunities and avoid risks.

Abbreviated titleBreaking Down The Barriers
OtherThe Australian Institute of Professional Intelligence Officers (AIPIO) is pleased to announce a call for papers for its 26th National Conference to be held at the Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart 22 - 24 August 2017. The conference theme is: “Breaking Down the Barriers”. The conference theme for each year changes to reflect the dynamic and often perpetual environment change in which analysts from all fields find themselves confronted by, seeking answers and solutions from providers and other members of this close-knit community.

Today, organisations are challenged to make faster, better informed, and wide ranging decisions in order to adapt to and remain competitive in today’s evolving operating environment. But as complexity grows, new barriers are emerging across organisational, systems, and practice boundaries. Customers are rightly asking whether they are getting the most out of their investment in intelligence. To succeed, intelligence professionals must work diligently to dissolve these barriers that may constrain the flow of insights to a more diverse and demanding customer base. Approaches that privilege effective engagement, technological enablement, and innovative practices are needed to satisfy expanding and more discerning intelligence needs.
