Key Lessons from Our Digital Government Journey
Produced through a collaboration between GovTech and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), here are four videos featuring our Government Chief Digital Technology Officer (GCDTO), Chan Cheow Hoe, sharing key lessons from Singapore’s digital government journey.
This first episode dives into the origins of GovTech, the start of Singapore’s digital government journey, the impetus for internal capability building in GovTech and the ‘outside in’ approach of solving problems for the customer.
This episode highlights how GovTech has evolved over the years, with the establishment of five Capability Centres to strengthen Public Sector engineering expertise and build the government’s capabilities in emerging technologies. Cheow Hoe also speaks about the experience of recruiting engineering talent and building capabilities within GovTech – including developing GovTech’s talent pool.
Episode 3 shares the origins and evolution of the Singapore Government Technology Stack (SGTS), a Strategic National Project (SNP) that offers government agencies a better, smarter and faster way for building applications.
Episode 4 spotlights how GovTech engages with the global community through forums like the Digital Government Exchange (DGX), sharings with countries like the UK, and working with international agencies like the UN and the World Bank. Cheow Hoe also shares more about how GovTech reaches out to tech communities through the Singapore Government Developer Portal and GovTech’s STACK Developer Conference.
