Hand in Hand: The Use of Data in Canadian Government Decision Making

By: Mark SchruttStrategic Advisor, Public Sector & Innovation Research, Jason BremnerResearch Vice President, Industry and Business Solutions


This IDC Perspective discusses the use of data in Canadian government decision making.

Data is changing decision making in the government. There is a shift in the use of facts and intuition. It is becoming easier to tell the difference between background noise or static and the true signals of change but, more importantly, to get the balance right between data, impartiality, and empathy. The pace of change has also pushed the advances of technology forward, sometimes faster than we can catch up.

"Technology, the demands of the public, and better use of data have made now the time for data-driven decision making," says Mark Schrutt, strategic advisor, Innovation and Public Sector Research, IDC Canada.
