In an environment of uncertain growth and rising demand, governments must find sustainable ways to finance public services and infrastructure. Digital technologies create opportunities to explore new models for providing services, improve management of resources through smarter spending, and link the money invested in programmes and services to the outcomes they produce for citizens, boosting accountability and trust.
To build a public sector that is fit for the future, government must reinvent itself. Digital transformation is not just about new technologies, but requires an overhaul of organisational structures, governance, work processes, culture and mind-sets. It also means realising a wider vision of relationships and business models that will redesign how public services function and how the public interacts with the organisation. Only then will governments capture the wider benefits that digital transformation can bring to people and society.
The Public Sector ICT Enterprise Forum will explore how government can employ digital transformation in order to enhance the citizen’s end-to-end experience of public services. We will evaluate how the public sector can adopt a ‘citizen-first’ culture and outlook in designing policies and delivering services. Furthermore, we will look at how tools such as social media, SMS and apps can encourage better citizen participation and collaboration by involving them in decision-making, policy-setting, budget prioritisation, problem-solving and the co-design of services.
The Public Sector ICT Forum’ ‘Staying ahead of digital transformation and disruption’ session will provide you with the answers to these questions. By attending, you’ll hear more about how to improve service quality, promote transparent and efficient interaction, enhance the level of public trust in government, and drive better citizen outcomes.
