IDC Public Sector Congress

The Emergence of a New Government Ecosystem


Governments around the world are increasingly adopting the service excellence levels of the private sector, streamlining their operations and eliminating silos through the deployment of emerging technologies and innovations that protect, sustain, and enhance societal and quality-of-life outcomes.


As outlined in the UAE Centennial Plan 2071, the UAE government’s primary goal is to prepare the country for the future and create a happy and cohesive society. Digital technologies are an integral part of this long-term vision. As a reflection of this vision, the UAE government stands out as one of the most proactive governments in the world when it comes to pioneering the adoption of emerging technologies in both the public and private sectors. These technology-driven initiatives are also giving rise to new government partner and customer ecosystems that are open, collaborative, and dynamic, providing the agility required to drive innovation at scale.  


In contrast to the traditional value chain, today’s government ecosystems are built around the sharing of data, insights, applications, operations, and expertise. A common foundation of tools, platforms, and channels also enables shared value and co-creation. This is a long and challenging journey as creating ecosystems that can drive the growth of a shared services economy is not easy given the complexities around rapid technological evolution and governance.  


The 2023 edition of the IDC Public Sector Congress will showcase invaluable insights from respected industry leaders and key decision makers from across the UAE's public sector. Together, they will explore the emerging digital government trends and groundbreaking innovations that are enabling the UAE government to move away from fully owned and vertically integrated paradigms toward ecosystems of partners, data, and experiences.
