On-line Presentation


This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation covers selected projects utilizing technology for civic engagement in Asia/Pacific countries. To reduce the number of people disengaged from civic life, new technologies must be further incorporated into civic engagement and must make civic participation more convenient for citizens. The connectivity provided by smartphones also provides prospects for increased civil engagement in the future. For instance, governments can involve citizens by disseminating information, conducting surveys in real time, and making use of big data on smartphones.

"Participation in civic life is critically essential in the functioning of society. Civic engagements enable a society to become stronger and more aware of the challenges that surround the people within it. Citizens now have the capability to participate in civic engagement and remain abreast of current events because of the widespread availability of technological resources," says Jezamin Abdul Razak, Government Insights Head, IDC Southeast Asia.
