Digital to the Core: Keeping Citizens at the Heart of Digital Transformation Modernising and transforming citizen experiences for Connected, Inclusive, and Anticipatory (CIA) Digital Government

The public sector has rapidly embraced digital technologies during the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the citizens.

Despite advances during the COVID-19 pandemic, governments have some way to go to meet citizens’ expectations for a seamless, personalised, equitable, and intuitive digital service delivery.

The crisis forced governments to rethink how to best serve citizens through proactive, transparent communication and citizen-centric digital offerings with always-on service.

Citizens are expecting more digitally enabled public services and many want to have more of a say in how they should be delivered. At the same time, a segment of citizens lacks the skills or means to access digital services.

The challenge for the government is to harness data and deploy enabling technologies to be more efficient and effective, without disadvantaged groups being left further behind.

Connected Government and Connected Citizens – Realising the Vision of a Unified Experience

The Singapore government has pivoted successfully and was able to respond decisively and swiftly to the COVID-19 outbreak with a suite of digital tools to help disseminate timely and accurate information to Singaporeans.

At the same time, it is not resting on the past laurels and recognises that much is needed to be done. Citizens now expect a level of service that can match the digital native businesses they often interact with on daily basis. Consider e-hailing, e-commerce, and e-wallet players — they provide a comprehensive service completely through digital means.

Ultimately, citizen experience matters the most and is the cornerstone of any digital government, For the public sector, results are not as quantifiable in comparison to the private sector. Hence, metrics such as delivery time, user satisfaction surveys, and application ratings are the means to establish citizen satisfaction.

The Future of a CIA Digital Government – Personalised, Intuitive, and Engaging Citizen Services

Good citizen experience is one of the most essential components of an effective government. This means people need to know what is available and easily avail what they need. Irrespective of where people access the government, they should be able to navigate to where they need to be and get what they need to get.

Unfortunately, it is still a far cry from the seamless, personalised engagements that citizens have and expect from the private sector. While many governments are prioritising improvement in the way they engage with their customers, archaic processes and outdated policies can often stymie good intentions. Getting information or accessing services from government agencies online continues to be a tedious process and often remains a frustrating experience in most countries.

A simplified, unified, cohesive experience across all departments and agencies is what whole-of-government is. And for the most part, efficiencies are being brought in through digital transformation using cutting-edge technologies. However, in a usually siloed environment, this is no simple task. Despite the availability and preponderance of platforms and solutions, and indeed, perhaps because of it, digital executives struggle to determine the best way forward.

The approach taken by the Singapore government acts as a prime example of how governments can move forward in this digital era.

Singapore places a strong priority on truly understanding its citizens’ pain points, which takes precedence over tools.

This points to the question – What does it take to provide a smooth, efficient experience for citizens to navigate to where they need to be? What are some of the tools available to allow a unified, cross-department citizen experience?
