@gov is a new digital magazine designed to deliver forward thinking and transformative insights to government professionals as they face increasing demands and emerging societal needs in a changing world.
Delivering in-depth insights spanning issues that affect both national and local governments, @gov looks at topics critical to success for governments today.
Welcome to the inaugural edition of @gov, the new digital magazine from KPMG, designed for government decision-makers.
The recent KPMG-Forbes Annual Survey on business transformation demonstrated the continuing impact of disruption and innovation, as leaders search for more efficient ways of deploying technology to power change initiatives in their organizations. The expectation among citizens that government provide similar technology solutions as private enterprise has also opened up a new set of challenges, along with a corresponding need for more customer-centric transformation strategies. Finally, the search for fresh insights to keep up with the pace of change has prompted leaders to seek lessons from governments in other jurisdictions, with many wishing for greater insights into emerging trends and best practices.
With @gov, we want to start a conversation that challenges the way you think about the most pressing issues in government and public sector leadership. We will aim to provide insight and analysis that is relevant, timely, easily digestible, and can be usefully applied in a public sector setting. Above all, we want a dialogue with you so we welcome your feed back and input.
The theme of this issue is ‘Transforming government in the age of technology’ and topics explored by our professionals include digital identification and the challenges of implementation across key jurisdictions, the public policy imperatives surrounding the rise of autonomous vehicles, government data sharing and the balance shift from privacy toward protection, in addition to cyber security and government vulnerability to cyber crime.
