image of Digital Government Review of Norway

Norway has long used technology to streamline processes within the public sector and bring the government closer to citizens and businesses. Now the country is going further, seeking to transform its public sector through the full assimilation of digital technologies. The goal is to make it more efficient, collaborative, user- and data-driven, and better able to respond to the changing needs and expectations of citizens and businesses. This review analyses the efforts under way and provides policy advice to support the Norwegian government in implementing digital government.



Building a data-driven public sector in Norway

This chapter seeks to understand the actions required to unleash the power and strategic use of data for the digital transformation of the Norwegian public sector. It discusses the governance of the public sector data value chain, including the role and legacy of the Norwegian basic data registries and open government data. Consequently, it addresses the development of skills and competencies and a propitious organisational environment inside Norwegian public sector institutions as a precondition to fully reap the benefits of data-driven technologies for public sector productivity and growth.
