Current challenges and risks in the process of informatization of Slovak society
A year has passed since the last ITAPA Congress and information society in Slovakia has significantly changed. After hectic year 2015 came attenuation of development and launch of new projects. The government born after March elections set its priorities; leaders of information society in Slovakia still need to find their place in these priorities. The public discussion on information society has changed as well. Many professionals have entered the discussion; this has on one hand brought creative impulses and bigger transparency, and on the other hand it increased demand for undersized and underrun administrative capacities. The part of discussion understandable to media is usually critical hampering possible political support. The community willing to have information technologies as one of tools of society development is facing challenges that will include the change of how we look at electronic services, new definition of target groups and what is attractive for them, as well as reasonable level of innovation risks.
