A Roadmap for the Future

image of Measuring the Digital Transformation

Measuring the Digital Transformation: A Roadmap for the Future provides new insights into the state of the digital transformation by mapping indicators across a range of areas – from education and innovation, to trade and economic and social outcomes – against current digital policy issues, as presented in Going Digital: Shaping Policies, Improving Lives. In so doing, it identifies gaps in the current measurement framework, assesses progress made towards filling these gaps and sets-out a forward-looking measurement roadmap. The goal is to expand the evidence base, as a means to lay the ground for more robust policies for growth and well-being in the digital era.

Open government data

Technology is profoundly influencing government openness. Rapid technological progress has significantly increased the amount of data generated in societies, including by government organisations. Open government data (OGD) can be used to strengthen public governance by improving the design of public services with a citizen-driven approach, enhancing public sector efficiency and responsiveness, and spurring public sector integrity and accountability. By ensuring OGD availability, accessibility and use by public, private and civic actors, governments can design more evidence-based and inclusive policies, stimulate innovation inside and outside the public sector, motivate data-driven civic engagement, better-inform citizens’ personal decisions and enhance public trust. Making data and evidence available across government departments and ministries contributes to better policy making, greater coordination and empowers businesses and civil society to also contribute.
