Digital society's lifeblood is data
Government data is a valuable resource that can help drive innovation, improve decision making and inform citizens.
How the government manages this data – from the collection to usage and transparency – will play a crucial role in defining #digitalgovernment.
After all, #datamanagement is a critical element of any competitive #digitaleconomy. The movement to make data freely available and accessible to all citizens and businesses has taken its place as a crucial element of global #governmentpolicy.
However, it is not without challenges and barriers such as fragmentation, silos, hard-to-process formats, no transparency, etc.
Unfortunately, according to #McKinsey, only a handful of countries have taken significant steps toward addressing these barriers so they can create interoperable and connected #governmentdata platforms.
