It also provides information on the main types of technologies used by GovTech including blockchain, AI and machine learning, IoT, robotic automation, and geospatial data analysis, with emphasis on the best examples of their implementation including decrease of time and complexity in public-private information exchanges, reduction of bureaucracy and corruption, improvement in automation, transparency, and accountability of information.
The report reviews 100 GovTech companies based in different regions and 350 investors in GovTech industry. 15 GovTech and Smart City tech hubs, 30 journalists and 40 influencers are also presented in the report. The report also is investigated the achievements in GovTech adoption in 30 countries worldwide focusing primarily on the developing countries that, due to the circumstances, could not or could only partially embark on a course of public administration automation.
By analyzing current technological and media trends in GovTech, presenting the overview of e-government and GovTech development models, and highlighting the barriers in the way of GovTech adoption the report is able to identify the key drivers of GovTech transformation in developed and developing countries, pick out the state, business and citizens benefits, and offer recommendations considering what has to be done to develop a healthy ecosystem for efficient collaboration between government and GovTech firms.
