One of the largest state-owned banks in Indonesia, PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia Tbk (BRI) recognises that the company’s digital transformation must be supported by exceptional Human Resources (HR) to produce the finest innovations. To achieve this objective, BRI inaugurated “Astana Veda,” the first IT Remote Office housed at BRI Corporate University in Yogyakarta.

“Through the inauguration of Astana Veda, BRI continues to support the development of digital talent in Indonesia. Here, we hope that various technology-based solutions in the field of financial services needed by the community will emerge,” said Arga M. Nugraha, Director of Digital & Information Technology, BRI.

According to Arga, Astana Veda has space for the top digital innovators. IT Remote Offices is a functional centre that can aid in the creation of platforms and infrastructure to support digital talent.

BRI will construct several IT Remote Offices till 2023 with cutting-edge designs to draw in digital talent from the top colleges in Indonesia. By joining BRI, students with digital talent will be able to access collaborative spaces more quickly and channel their contributions to technology development. IT Remote Office is not only up to date, but it also has a few complete support facilities. Astana Veda has many benefits and features, such as modern interiors, rooms for babies, and a variety of sports facilities.

Arga also said that this project fits with BRI’s goal of becoming “The Most Valuable Banking Group and Champion of Financial Inclusion.” In addition, BRI is always working to improve the digital parts of its services. For example, the biggest bank in Indonesia has BRIBRAIN, which is a system made by BRI that uses artificial intelligence to store, process, and put together all the information from different sources.

Also, there is BRISPOT, which makes it easier for customers to get credit and gives them faster access to it through digital applications. BRI also has a financial app called BRImo that has been used by more than 17 million people. This app makes it easy for customers to do business from anywhere and at any time.

In the meantime, corporate sectors, international organisations, academia, and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) have joined the G20 in discussing the issue pertaining to the cross-country flow of data.

Indonesia is working hard to implement the cross-border data flow agenda as soon as possible so that it is compatible with the regulations under discussion, notably the rules pertaining to the draught personal data protection (PDP) legislation. The regulation is intended to protect domestic consumers when they conduct financial transactions in the digital market.

Indonesians frequently use digital markets from other countries. It is critical to strengthen personal data protection in the implementation of electronic systems using a global platform.

OpenGov Asia earlier reported that all G20 member countries, particularly the delegates of the Digital Economy Working Group (DEWG), share the goal of using digital technology to promote global economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Johnny G. Plate, Minister of Communications, and Information, the G20 countries share a common goal: to promote global economic recovery through digital technologies.

During the recently held Indonesia’s G20 leadership, he requested all parties to promote DEWG events. With this help, Indonesia is expected to be successful in the discussion topic and in showcasing super priority tourism sites.
