Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for Smart Government

  • Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for Smart Government-

    Cost-effective open data

    Many tend to equate open data with public data, however, data can be defined as open when it is machine-readable and is accessible through an API. This can apply to potentially any data that needs to be processed, whether it is public, discoverable through Freedom of Information Act requests, or restricted for use by a particular government agency. This leads to new ways of mashing up data coming from different sources, as well as the ability to build new services and processes based on open data. Governments become both providers of open data to each other and to the public at large (the latter just for public data) and consumers of open data coming from other parts of government as well as from businesses, NGOs and citizen communities.

The nexus of forces, which is the convergence of four powerful forces: social, mobile, cloud and information, is driving innovation in the government sector, according to Gartner, Inc.

"Smart government integrates information, communication and operational technologies to planning, management and operations across multiple domains, process areas and jurisdictions to generate sustainable public value," said Andrea Di Maio, managing vice president at Gartner. Gartner has identified the top 10 technology trends that government IT organizations should factor into their strategic planning processes.
