Embarking on the Next Phase of Digital Transformation – Government & Enterprise

The Future of Digital Government is being viewed as collaborative, innovative, trust worthy, citizen- centric and citizen-driven.

In our connected, customer-centric world, citizens have come to expect that their needs will be met quickly and frictionless — in much the same way organisations like Uber, Air BnB, eBay, Spotify and Amazon use them to broker relationships between people, services and goods.

The 2018 United Nations E-Government Survey is issued at the time of key rapid technological changes, with Member States in the third year of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In the 5 years, Malaysia has digitally transformed their government services. Including, having 83% of their government services being available online.

These government services are integrated and aim to provide inclusive and a citizen centric digital service to all Malaysians. This has allowed the Malaysian government to strengthen leadership and governance for the planning and coordination of their digital initiatives, allowing them to be able to strengthen their ICT management and become more dynamic and efficient.

The Malaysia government have been increasing their investments on the technology and innovation sector in Malaysia. This has allowed even the bottom 40% of people in the income pyramid to have access to e-services.

Making e-services easily accessible even to people of lower socio-economic status reduces the digital divide that is potent and extensive across the South East Asian region. Malaysia’s initiatives to reduce this digital divide is in-line with the UN’s goals of boosting access to science and technology to people of all walks of life.

Malaysia has also managed to climb in their rankings when it comes to the Human Capital Index (HCI).
