Drive Digital Transformation in the Public Sector - Data Availability Matters

Enhancing data management and for better governmental agility, capacity, and response time

Around the world, government agencies and organisations are doubling their digitalisation efforts to meet citizens’ needs and endure the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2020 alone, growth within the digital economy has understandably accelerated as the COVID-19 pandemic gave birth to new digital businesses. The “new normal” is driving the organisations to accelerate digital transformation initiatives to ensure that citizens continue to avail of mission-critical services uninterrupted and seamlessly.


The global economy, Malaysia included, continues to endure the severe challenges of the crisis. This devastating event has affected Malaysians of every ethnicity and social strata as well as workers in both the public and private sectors. Whole industries faced upheavals, and many of our day-to-day interactions are now conducted virtually.

In Malaysia, to realise the aspirations of MyDIGITAL, the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint is formulated to set the direction, outline the strategies, initiatives and targets to build the foundation to drive the growth of the digital economy, including bridging the digital divide. The Blueprint will also ensure that the country is ready to embrace digital technology by seizing existing opportunities.

The emergence of new technologies, data analytics and a digital environment changes expectations towards the ability of the Government in delivering public services.

Based on the MyDigital blueprint, to ensure that no Malaysian is left behind to catch the wave of digitalisation, the foundations have been set for the country’s transformation towards an advanced digital economy. This foundation means building the infrastructure, facilitating innovation and creating an ecosystem for all to contribute to bring forth higher standards of living, the fruits of which will be enjoyed by all Malaysians, at the same time, driving digital transformation in the public sector by increasing the adoption of digital technologies and utilising digital tools to improve efficiency and productivity.

While this transformation encompasses people, process, and technology, it is the underlying technology that forms a foundation for a successful initiative. A big part of this shift is driving digital transformation by recognising the importance of data. Enhancing data management, security and recovery is now more vital due to the surge of cyber threats such as Ransomware.

Digital Transformation Outpaces Risk Management

Digital transformation, compounded by the new normal introduced by the COVID-19 pandemic also created a ‘Transformation Gap’ that agencies and organisations must address across the Four C’s:

• COSTS | managing more data across more sources

• CYBER | resiliency in the face of a ransomware attack

• CLOUD | standardise data management across clouds

• COMPLIANCE | abide by new data regulations

There is no better time than now to simplify and secure your data recovery strategies. The need of the hour is to democratise and secure the data systems to keep pace with the new digital demands and deliver more effective and efficient public services.

Organisations are transforming and rapidly adopting cloud services; however, it is important that this transition serves as an enabler and does not create additional complexity for IT operations teams while securing utmost data security.

Given that the top goal of digital transformation efforts is to become more operationally efficient, any new solutions deployed must simplify data management and enable the agencies to be more agile and digitally capable.

So, what does a government agency/organisation needs to assess and critically adopt to transform their digital operations amid the new normal? OpenGov Asia is pleased to invite you to an exclusive OpenGovLive! Virtual Breakfast Insight aimed at imparting knowledge and strategies on how to democratise and secure data to enhance organisational agility, capacity, and response time.

• How to shift the agency/organisation’s focus to a more holistic data protection strategy
