Accelerating the Philippines’ Public Sector Technological and Analytical Capabilities

A Platform For Collaboration

OpenGov Asia is pleased to invite you to an exclusive OpenGovLive! Virtual Breakfast Insight that aims to provide the latest information on the benefits of a cloud-based model to enjoy cost savings and operational efficiencies. This is a closed-door, invitation-only, interactive session with top public sector leaders from the Philippines.

Driving the cloud-first policy to fully utilise the capabilities to improve public sector resilience and foster innovation to better serve the people

The Philippine Digital Transformation Strategy 2022 has been created to prioritise the country’s national interests. Also known as e-government 2.0, the aim is to achieve strong citizen engagement through institutionalising closed-loop, multidimensional and multidirectional communication channels.

Grounded on the foundations of infrastructure development, human capital development and bridging the digital divide, the strategy is based on three pillars: economic transformation, people engagement and innovation.

With the current advancement, there is agreement within the public sector that data science, analytics and digital transformation can help to make better policies and deliver better services as the Philippines moves toward a new and better normal, as shared by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA).

Public sector agencies agree, across the board, that cloud computing is a wise option because it reduces the cost of purchasing, setting up, running and maintaining daily technology services. Cloud computing has been proven to empower the public sector with the ability to streamline technology operations and significantly improve efficiency in processing citizen-facing transactions.

Cloud computing enables the public sector to respond to citizen needs in a more agile manner and allows public services to be adapted as needed. It enables agencies to handle demand spikes without disrupting service because technology support can be appropriately scaled. For example, in cases where services may face peak demand periods, such as filing online tax returns just before a deadline.

Technically, cloud computing can boost public sector resilience by providing business continuity and disaster recovery services in the event of a natural disaster or other calamity affecting a country. Not only does cloud computing help mitigate cybersecurity risk, but it also provides stronger cybersecurity and privacy capabilities that would otherwise be difficult to resource and keep updated.

A system that simplifies operations and improves efficiency

The public sector can reduce processes and streamline operations by using cloud-based tools. Cloud platforms provide the public sector with productivity tools to consolidate administrative and operational processes and exchange information with multiple stakeholders remotely.

Methods for improving agility and scaling public services

The deployment of ICT resources is reduced from weeks to minutes when compared to traditional ICT infrastructure. Software solutions, data storage and computational capacity can be deployed in a cloud computing environment with a few mouse clicks, allowing agencies to be highly responsive to citizen needs. Cloud computing evens fosters a new collaborative approach, resulting in shorter development and improvement cycles.

Practical methods to develop a strong cloud strategy and adoption plan

The implementation of a national cloud-first could signal the public sector willingness to embrace cloud computing. This should be followed by a clear implementation plan or strategy, which can then be iterated to meet the needs of the country and incorporate lessons learned from previous implementations.

Steps to increase resilience through improved business continuity and disaster recovery

The advantages of the cloud in terms of business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) go beyond capital expenditure (CAPEX) savings. Using the cloud can improve resilience by enabling customised BCDR mechanisms to distribute or replicate data and workloads across multiple data centres in disparate geographic locations in near real-time.
