About Digital Government
We are helping policymakers unlock the potential of technology: for an innovative digital economy, smarter public sector and stronger society.
1. The digital economy. Digital networks, data and technology are part of the fabric of the modern economy. We have called on the government to open up public data to boost economic activity. We are taking forward work on how best to support digital innovation, and will be looking closely at public policy on broadband infrastructure and internet regulation.
2. A smarter, citizen-centric public sector. With detailed strategies and implementation plans for public sector ICT now in place, we will turn to the practical questions about what people really want from digital government. We will also be asking what more the government should be doing to leverage its data to drive more efficient operations and make better, more informed decisions.
3. The internet and society. Technology is having a profound effect on society. Notions of privacy, security and relationships are changing dramatically with the rise of social networks, advanced mobile devices and cloud services. Our work will focus on the opportunities and risks of a digital society, and what this means for the worlds of government, business and politics.
