Data Matapopore

Data is considered the “new oil” but how do we refine it for the full benefit of Aotearoa New Zealand? Many core data systems used across Aotearoa have been built without considering Māori use cases. How do we make sure that our data and analytics honour Māori; improving accessibility, data quality and outcomes for Māori.

WSP Business Intelligence Advisory will share our journey so far, some of our experience and insights to encourage change, so fair and respectful evidence-based decisions are made now and in future.
