In the current digital era, data has become an asset most people use to achieve various goals and purposes. With the advancement of technology, the demand for data availability is also increasing. Ongoing research efforts include data management for digital governance.

Budi Prawara, Head of the Electronics and Informatics Research Organisation, mentioned that through the digital government research group, the Data Science and Information Research Centre supports Electronic-Based Government Systems (SPBE) and contributes to research on data management generated from e-government systems.

“Data science has analysed, managed, and handled data in real-time. Its applications are widely used in government,” Budi stated during the Data Science and Information Research Centre’s webinar.

In managing digital government data and information, Andrari Grahitandaru, Senior Expert Engineer at the Data Science and Information Research Centre, emphasised that every central and local government agency needs to develop applications that align with their respective tasks and functions. This is to ensure the production of data in line with their responsibilities. Andrari explained that applications cannot operate independently, and the data generated by these applications can be shared among various stakeholders.

Further, Andrari elaborated that data outputs from each agency should be shared through Data Interoperability Services provided by the Ministry of Communication and Information. Andrari emphasised the need to access data through their interoperability services for other agencies requiring it. “Thus, every central and local government agency must have a data and information interoperability service unit,” clarified Andrari.

Andrari recommended updating the business processes involved in sharing data, which is the responsibility of each agency. This suggestion includes concrete steps such as establishing a complete data catalogue with reference codes, setting data standards, and defining metadata for the relevant data and information.

I Nengah Tamba, the Regent of Jembrana-Bali, emphasised that valid data is the key to development success, especially in the district he leads. “If we have data, it means that what we do will be fast, transparent, and target-oriented,” he expressed.

In Indonesia alone, a project in Bali exemplifies the successful implementation of data-driven initiatives. Jembrana Regency is a national pilot project called Jembrana Satu Data Dari Desa (JSDDD), which utilises a digital platform for social and economic registration. According to Tamba, integrated data is crucial for implementing effective policies and targeted development programmes, ultimately aimed at achieving the well-being of the Jembrana community.

“JSDDD complies with Presidential Regulation Number 39 of 2019 regarding Indonesia’s single data. It has data standards, metadata, and data reference codes. It also adheres to data sharing or interoperability principles,” said Tamba.

Tamba highlighted that besides efficient budget utilisation through prioritised activity implementation, JSDDD becomes a solution for regional single data. It involves collaboration, where resources are used jointly between Jembrana Regency, village governments, and the Central Statistics Agency. “Moreover, it provides multiple benefits for both central and regional governments, offering a unified data version that can be utilised according to their needs,” he explained.

To support it, Tamba quoted the Village Law Number 6 of 2014 Article 86, which states that villages have the right to access information through information systems developed by regional or city governments.

Therefore, according to Nimas Ayu Untariyati, Senior Expert Engineer at the Data Science and Information Research Centre, what is being developed by Jembrana Regency strongly supports the mandate of the village law. “This is also in line with the features that should be available in a village information system application, namely administration, public services, data management, and community participation,” Ayu stated.

The village information system’s implications for the village involve increased access to information. With more efficient administration, better public services, structured data management, and active community participation, the village can experience positive transformation. Improved access to information opens opportunities for rural communities to gain broader and more up-to-date knowledge.

Additionally, enhanced services through the village information system can expedite administrative processes, provide convenience in accessing public services, and improve data management efficiency. Overall, these developments empower rural communities and contribute to improving the socio-economic conditions of the village.

The increased connectivity of local markets also opens new opportunities for local economic growth. Thus, the village information system significantly impacts development and well-being at the village level.
