Technology will continue to revolutionise the way governments operate. The Singapore government will be leveraging the opportunities provided by Big Data, sensors, cloud and open data to improve productivity and citizen services, while ensuring information security, said Zaqy Mohamad, Member of Parliament & Chairman for the Government Parliamentary Committee, Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI), Singapore.

Speaking to over 240 public sector leaders at the 11th annual Future Gov Forum Singapore, Mohamad emphasised the growing importance of ICT in Singapore’s journey of becoming an intelligent city.

Singapore has come up top in many of the international e-government rankings and the Government is not resting on its laurels. “In order to prepare for the next 10 years, Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore and MCI are now embarking on the Infocomm Media Master plan 2025 Consultation to crowd source ideas that can benefit citizens and businesses, as well as make Singapore a Smart Nation,” he said.

The Government is seeking to provide consistent, high quality and seamless broadband experience for residents by improving pervasiveness and connectivity. “There should be seamless data access over different wireless networks with HetNet so users do not have to constantly log in or change their network.”
