Digital government vision for her kingdom - ITREALMS

MondayCommentary@ITREALMS: 
As digital transformation continues to play a fundamental role in shaping the way governments across the world adapt to new opportunities and challenges, International Data Corporation (IDC) has published an in-depth analysis to spur debate, share data, highlight best practices, and assess the impact of ICT on digital government initiatives globally and in Saudi Arabia. Titled 'A Digital Government Vision for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia', the report leverages insights from the Kingdom’s most senior ICT decision makers to help guide the implementation of Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Program (NTP).

Due to several macroeconomic and societal actors, countries are increasingly competing with each other for talent, foreign investment and development. Ensuring that their digital infrastructure is in place has become a major differentiator. This, in turn, has pushed countries both regionally and globally to emplace national strategies to enhance smart government performance. Vision 2030 sets out a long-term economic blueprint for reducing Saudi Arabia's dependence on oil, strengthening the nation's economy, attracting investment, and improving the lives of its citizens.

In line with this, the NTP provides relevant government entities with a detailed roadmap – including regional and global benchmarks, performance indicators, and expected outcomes – for achieving the goals set out by Vision 2030. The successful outcomes of these programs will be driven by the rapid adoption and well-planned execution of digital initiatives. They will be supported by technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) cloud, and the Internet of Things (IoT), and governed by digital program offices that will monitor their cross-functional impact.
