FIWARE eGov DAY: From eGovernment to eGovernance: Open Platforms for Public Value Creation
September 10, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
More and more, eGovernance applications are becoming part of citizens’ lives as they save costs and citizens’ time. The major elements are connectivity, information, skill set, budget. Given how tight public budgets often are, the return on investment is the major focus for governments when looking into digitizing their services. How can they go about that with costly software? The use of free and Open Source software could be the answer as it provides cost savings, security, scalability, reliability, interoperability, and globalization.
To showcase the ways in which the FIWARE Community members are working to foster this economic model, whilst also reducing the financial burden of public administrations and increasing citizens’ engagement within the process, this free virtual experience brings together private and public businesses, and developers operating at different fields to discuss how Open Source technology can make a difference.
The FIWARE eGovernment DAY will feature outstanding keynote and specialist speeches from experts in the field, as well as real-life use cases coming from across the world highlighting how nations are attempting to innovate their infrastructure – even though they may be at different stages in their journey of digital transformation – not least in respect to the use of Open Source approaches and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) such as Blockchain, for example.
