The Power of Information Management for the Public Sector

Solutions that Demonstrate Government Accountability and Transparency by Accelerating Information

Globally, public sectors have comprehensively moved to information digitisation. This has been proven to be the fuel of the public sector today, allowing them to understand trends, make decisions and better serve citizens. With this, though, comes the tremendous responsibility of managing and protecting data - in terms of privacy as well as safekeeping. This has been done through policy, process and infrastructure.

To protect their information, the Singapore government enacted the Data Management Act (“PSGA”) and the Government Instruction Manual on Infocomm Technology & Smart Systems Management (“IM on ICT&SS Management”), which are governed by the Public Sector (Governance) Act (“PSGA”) and the Government Instruction Manual on Infocomm Technology & Smart Systems Management (“IM on ICT&SS Management”).

Process and infrastructure are the other two legs that a good data strategy rests on. Information management allows data processing techniques in the public sector to become more secure and integrated. The capacity to quickly organise, integrate and safeguard data alleviates many of the problems that agencies face, particularly when it comes to managing sensitive data and providing effective citizen services.

Information management has been proved effective in meeting the needs of the post-pandemic environment. In an increasingly VUCA environment, good data that is robustly managed and protected is essential.

Governments can improve decision-making and demonstrate accountability and openness with the right information management solutions. Properly managing public sector information, will ensure that it remains reliable, trustworthy and promotes the use and reuse of data by both public sector entities and the general public.

Agencies will be able to interpret structured and unstructured data insights into actions and outcomes through mastering information management methodologies. Analytics and trends will generate information-driven, actionable insights and simultaneously speed up decision-making.

Further, the risk of data being tempered or distorted can be mitigated if the information is automated to adhere to governance and compliance protocols.

Exposure to existing compliance risk mitigation measures

To ensure public sector regulatory compliance, it is critical to manage information based on value. Suitable automation and integration tools offer appropriate proper data management empowers compliance as well as diminishing risk.

Serving as a reliable method of decision-making

The public sector will be able to gain insights from data to make better decisions for citizens' economic and health benefits. Agencies must be quick to demonstrate information accountability and openness by retrieving citizen data knowledge captured in unstructured text.

The future of the public sector depends on the pace and quality of data handling

Enterprise content management technologies ensure instant access to information when, when and how it is needed. Obtaining this actionable result will increase decision-making speed and transparency, as well as add value to the data when it is transformed into recommendations for change.
