DSM 2.0: An agenda for Europe’s Digital Economy, and how the public sector can play a key role | Medzinárodný kongres ITAPA 2018: Hacking the Future
The digital transformation of every area of society and the economy will be at the top of the European agenda for the next five years. This will be a make or break period that will determine whether Europe can keep up with the US and China, while navigating the dangers of digital disruption. If we are to pull it off, the public sector will play a key role. Beyond a reinvigorated e-government agenda that delivers on every level of government, governments can play a key role in ensuring secure identities and architectures, opening up and orchestrating the sharing of data, and building collaboration in areas like transport, health and energy.
