The 4th Annual Indonesia OpenGov Leadership Forum 2019 held on July 18th brought together over 300 participants from national and state government ministries, agencies, departments along with FSI, healthcare and education sectors to exchange ideas and experiences.

It was a day filled with stimulating round-table discussions with innovative gamification methods, engaging panels and insightful talks by local and international leaders from FSI and public sector ICT.

The Dawn of Edge Computing – Its Impact on How Government Operates

The first-panel session of the day was moderated by Klaus Felsche, Senior Advisor, OpenGov Asia.

Panel 1: views, perspectives and intense discussion on Edge Computing

The panellists were Sudarto Dwi, Senior Advisor to the Minister on Organisation, Bureaucracy and Information Technology Affairs, Ministry of Finance, Setiaji, Head of Communication & Informatics Department, West Java Province, Dr Fazilah Shaik Allaudin, Senior Deputy Director, Ministry of Health from Malaysia and Laurensius Then, Business Development Manager, DCLS – East Asia, Schneider Electric.

The panel discussed the dawn of Edge Computing and its impact on how government operates.

Being rapidly adopted across the board, it has the potential to revolutionise how data is collected, distributed, processed and analysed.

The panelists shared the view that user experience and utilising technology to enable functionality was paramount.

It was unanimously agreed that edge computing is something that needs to be pursued as it is inexpensive and easy to use.

It would enable agencies to take better advantage of opportunities by leveraging a cloud computing architecture.

The key takeaway from the discussions was that the technology is accessible and cost-effective.

Panelists urged the delegates to determine what their respective agencies are aiming to achieve, consider the issues at hand and then go for it.

Seizing the Transformational Opportunity – Realising the Vision of Indonesia 4.0

The second panel of the day drew panelists from government, academia and FSI sector to discuss the timely topic.

Panel 2 agreed that collaboration between government and FSI sector should be maximised

This panel was moderated by Klaus Felche, Senior Advisor, OpenGov Asia. The panelists were Ramdan Pradarma, Vice President – Airport Services, PT. Angkasa Pura1 (Persero), Ivan Jaya, EVP – Head of Wealth Management & Digital Business, Commonwealth Bank, Ka Jit, Head – Strategy and Innovation, OCBC NISP Bank, Dr Setiadi Yazid, Professor- Department of Computer Science, University of Indonesia.

In this panel, experts discussed the contribution of pioneering technologies in achieving the vision of Industry 4.0.

Panelists were of the view that it is imperative to maximise collaboration between government and FSI sector.

Converting industry-driven activities into those driven by technology, creativity, and innovation would ultimately enable Indonesia to become a digital leader and compete within the ASEAN economic community.

Banking on Digital Future – Embracing Innovation and Disruption

This panel session, which was the last event for the day, featured FSI leaders from Indonesia who shed light on the topic of discussion.

Panelists shared their thoughts on promoting innovation and managing great ideas

This panel was moderated by Klaus Felche, Senior Advisor, OpenGov Asia. The panelists were Kaspar Situmorang, Executive Vice President & Head Digital Center of Excellence, PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia, Mary Bernadette James, Chief Information Officer, Bank Danamon, Edwin Sugianto, Chief Operating Officer, PT Asuransi AXA Indonesia, Joseph Georgino Godong, Advisor, Mandiri FinTech Investment and FinTech Operations.

Panelists shared their thoughts about innovation in Indonesia.  Most agreed that innovation without implementation is a luxury few organisations can afford. The key to successful innovation is the willingness to accept experimentation and failure and learning from it.

They provided thoughts on how to promote innovation and manage great ideas to make them a reality and integrate them into existing organisational operations.

The discussion also veered to how some global organisations are struggling to provide meaningful services locally, tailored to the local environment.

Building digital skills was also discussed as one of the important components for organisations to be able to compete in the global environment and critical to the success of all digital transformation efforts.

Delegates left the forum with a far more comprehensive and pragmatic understanding of digital transformation and the tools required to advance the Industry 4.0 vision. The genuine sharing of real journeys, robust discussion, and insightful interactions provided not only food for thought but a better idea for a way forward.
