Many countries started their digital Government journey more than 5 years ago. After spending hundreds of millions of dollars, digital government must demonstrate significant impact on Government priorities and prove its worth. It must feature in the front and centre of national agenda and drive the future of Government. This is not a hobby. The recent Covid pandemic is a stern test of how tech can be instrumental in dealing with a crisis and the ability to scale to a National level quickly. The crisis has accelerated the adoption of technology by Governments. Digital government must step up and take its place in the post Covid world. It is important for Governments to compose their future with technology and not miss the opportunity to take great strides forward in doing what matters for citizens and businesses. So its time to scale up or ship out.
