It will also give the participants a practical example on a collaborative, whole-of-government approach, where sector-independent ICT services are organised and produced without requiring any significant sector-specific expertise (the example of VALTORY, the new Finnish government ICT centre).

Government by numbers: How big a problem is gaming?
Governments are under pressure to show their ever more educated and informed citizens that schools, hospitals and other public services are getting better. Traditionally, they have done that by spending money and building things: look, a brand new hospital! Of course, everybody knows that there is more to service quality than dollars, bricks and mortar. But at least we can see and touch bricks and mortar.  How can we put a finger on service quality?

Rigsrevisionen: Beretning om statens behandling af fortrolige oplysninger om personer og virksomheder  
Beretningen handler om, hvordan en række statslige institutioner beskytter fortrolige oplysninger om personer og virksomheder. Det kan fx være oplysninger om en persons helbred, skatteforhold eller strafbare forhold. Den øgede digitalisering stiller øgede krav til sikkerheden omkring disse oplysninger, da det kan have vidtrækkende konsekvenser for de personer og virksomheder, det går ud over, hvis oplysninger falder i de forkerte hænder. Formålet med undersøgelsen er derfor at vurdere, om institutionerne beskytter fortrolige oplysninger om personer og virksomheder tilstrækkeligt.

Undersøgelsen viser, at ingen af de undersøgte institutioner efterlever alle de krav til behandling af fortrolige personoplysninger, som er fastsat i sikkerhedsbekendtgørelsen, der er udstedt i medfør af persondataloven.

Undersøgelsen er baseret på it-revisioner udført som led i årsrevisionen i foråret 2014. Rigsrevisionen har selv taget initiativ til undersøgelsen.
TU Delft - Ambulance Drone - YouTube
Each year nearly a million people in Europe suffer from a cardiac arrest. A mere 8% survives due to slow response times of emergency services. The ambulance-drone is capable of saving lives with an integrated defibrillator. The goal is to improve existing emergency infrastructure with a network of drones. This new type of drones can go over 100 km/h and reaches its destination within 1 minute, which increases chance of survival from 8% to 80%! This drone folds up and becomes a toolbox for all kind of emergency supplies. Future implementations will also serve other use cases such as drowning, diabetes, respiratory issues and traumas.

MBRSG - The Arab Government Services Outlook 2014
Despite the wide acceptance of the need for enhanced services in the Arab World, efforts to understand the intricacies of public service development are limited, especially on a regional level. For this reason, the Governance and Innovation Program at the Mohammed bin Rashid School of Government conducted regional research examining the state of public services in the Arab world. This report aims to improve understanding of public service delivery in the Arab region by providing a broad view of service delivery environments, outputs and enablers; as well as regional challenges and strengths, and the overall quality of public services in the Arab world.
This report is comprised of two main components:
• The results of a survey of key official Arab government entities which focused on internal service delivery activities of government organizations.
• The results of an Arab regional ‘customer’ satisfaction survey which focused on customer experience and satisfaction with public services.

World Economic Forum: The Global Information Technology Report 2014. Rewards and Risks of Big Data
This year marks the 13th edition of the Global Information Technology Report, which provides a comprehensive assessment of networked readiness, or how prepared an economy is to apply the benefits of information and communications technologies (ICTs) to promote economic growth and well-being. Using updated methodology that was introduced in 2012, the report ranks the progress of 148 economies in leveraging ICTs to increase productivity, economic growth and the number of quality jobs.

The rankings also show how far some countries have gone in bridging the digital divide – not only in terms of developing ICT infrastructure, but also in terms of economic and social impact – and highlight the main strengths and weaknesses countries are facing. This edition also analyses in detail the rewards and risks associated with big data and what public and private organizations must do to benefit from it. The report remains the most comprehensive and authoritative international assessment of its kind.
Study on eGovernment and the Reduction of Administrative Burden. (SMART 2012/0061)
Administrative Burden Reduction (ABR) can be achieved through the integration of eGovernment tools; the smart use of the information that citizens and businesses have to provide to public authorities for the completion of administrative procedures; making electronic procedures the dominant channel for delivering eGovernment services; and the principle of the “once only” registration of relevant data. The latter ensures that citizens and businesses supply certain standard information only once, because public administration offices take action to internally share this data, so that no additional burden falls on citizens and businesses.

This is a short and highly visual guide for top management teams in local public services.

Conference on Transforming Arab Economies
The imperative of creating millions of good jobs is the first of many daunting challenges confronting the Arab world. To meet those challenges, Arab countries would do well to embrace a model of economic growth based on knowledge and innovation, building on the global move toward the knowledge economy.
Over the past decade, some countries of the region have spurred growth and improved their global competitiveness by taking the first steps in the direction of the knowledge economy. To go farther, however, Arab societies must deepen their commitment to reforms in four key policy areas: developing more open and entrepreneurial economies, preparing a better-educated and more highly skilled population, improving their capabilities for innovation and research, and expanding information and communication technologies and their applications. The success of a knowledge-economy strategy depends on coordinated progress on all four fronts, with bold approaches tailored to each country’s challenges and opportunities.

Every click you make: feds consider how closely they'll watch Canadians online
By Stephanie Levitz, The Canadian Press. The Vancouver Sun, March 12, 2013. "OTTAWA - The federal government is restricting how closely it watches Canadians online. New rules are now in place governing the use of data that's gathered when Canadians visit government websites, the first comprehensive guidelines since Ottawa went online nearly 20 years ago.

But the rules don't cover the data available to the government via social media sites that are set up by individual departments, which operate beyond the bounds of federal policy.

Among other things, the new rules for tracking visits to government websites prohibit the government from profiling an individual's online activity by tracking their computer's Internet protocol address..."

That may soon change.
