Modernizing Data Strategy For Digital India


India has embarked on a significant technological transformation, with platforms like India Stack, UPI, Aadhaar, GSTN, and ONDC attesting to the nation’s digital prowess. This integrated approach has enhanced accessibility and convenience, thereby accelerating a shift towards digital governance.

Amid this digital shift, data has emerged as the principal catalyst of digital transformation. The importance of data as a strategic governance asset cannot be overstated. How it is prioritised, managed, and utilised determines an organisation’s survivability, growth trajectory, and competitive advantage. This is particularly true for public sector and government organisations, where increased transparency, efficient operations, and improved decision-making are central objectives.

With the collation of data from different sources in real-time or batch-mode, the government is augmenting its decision-making processes and public service delivery. A data-driven digital strategy is leading this change, with the aim to collect, sift through, analyse, and disseminate a broad spectrum of information for improved governance and citizen empowerment. Data reporting, analytics, and visualisation tools offer enhanced visibility into public sector operations, fostering transparency and accountability. By leveraging data, governments can pinpoint potential threats and vulnerabilities, thus strengthening their overall security measures.

Furthermore, the integration of AI/ML technologies can play a vital role in enhancing citizen experiences by predicting demands and implementing preventive measures. These technologies can swiftly forecast trends and patterns, enabling proactive governance and superior public services.

Join us at this special roundtable discussion ‘Modernizing Data Strategy for Digital India‘ organised by Tech Observer Magazine and Qlik for a deeper understanding of data as a strategic governance asset for not only to enhance security, but also to optimise the citizen experience and improve visibility into public sector operations, thereby promoting transparency and accountability.
