Digital Government Transformation

Digital Government refers to the use of digital technologies, as an integrated part of governments’ modernisation strategies, to create public value. It relies on a digital government ecosystem comprised of government actors, non-governmental organisations, businesses, citizens’ associations and individuals which supports the production of and access to data, services and content through interactions with the government. A fusion of advanced technologies and the integration of physical and digital systems, the predominance of innovative business models and new processes, and the creation of smart products and services

Digital Government Transformation (DGT) is the introduction of radical changes, alongside more incremental ones, in government operations, internal and ex-ternal processes, and structures, to achieve greater openness and collaboration within and beyond governmental boundaries, enabled by the introduction of a combination of existing ICTs and/or new data-driven technologies and applications, as well as by a radical reframing of both organisational and cognitive practices; it may encompass different forms of public sector innovation across different phases of the service provision and policy cycle to achieve key context-specific public values and related objectives such as, among others, increasing efficiency, effectiveness, accountability and transparency, to deliver citizen-centric services and design policies that increase inclusion and trust in government
