Digitisation has fundamentally altered the way we live, businesses operate, governance is undertaken, and has enabled the state of hyperconnectivity that binds us together. Technological advancements within the digital space have rendered big data as the pivotal element that will continue to transform how business is conducted in many industries, including government. Government data generation and digital archiving rates are on the rise, as smart solutions are demanded to keep abreast with the pace of change. The government market is at a tipping point, realizing that information is a strategic asset, and that governments need to protect, leverage, and analyse both structured and unstructured information to render a more vigilant decision-making process that enables effective governance.
As government leaders strive to evolve data-driven organizations to improve governance, they are laying the groundwork to correlate dependencies across events, people, processes, and information. This ultimately improves policy-making decisions.
