“One Indonesia Data” Underway

The Indonesian government is implementing a data-driven policy and hastening the digitisation of public services by integrating super apps for public services to create One Indonesia Data, according to Minister of Communication and Information Johnny G. Plate.

If we talk about public services, we must realise that there are so many services that are partially accessed by the public. Therefore, the Government is preparing public services super apps, an integrated public service application in one application.

Minister Johnny added that the super applications are therefore required to enable inter-agency communication so that they can be incorporated into the same system. Thus, these “super apps” are designed to avoid the repetition of applications with identical features from different government agencies. As a result, to develop dependable and integrated super applications, cooperation from every government sector is mandatory.

He further emphasised the significance of creating a single, comprehensive application for Indonesia to reorganise the hundreds of dispersed applications. He intended to restructure to create one ideal application for Indonesia. Only eight applications, at most, are integrated. This is being prepared in the roadmap for the Ministry of Communications and Informatics.

The Ministry would terminate around 24,400 applications and will then be gradually added to super apps. Hence, employing super apps will be more effective and it will be remarkable for the entire country since the efficiency will be higher than the fiscal intervention and the savings are in the tens of trillions.

On the other side, the nation is still using 2,700 data centres to implement electronic government. However, only 3% of Indonesia’s data is cloud-based; the remaining 93% are separate, which is one of the challenges facing Indonesian data producers.

Meanwhile, according to Minister Johnny, the government plans to construct four data centres that are based on the cloud to realise efficiency in the management of data centres. The first data centre will be built near the current state capital in Jabodetabek, while the government is simultaneously designing the building of a second data centre in Nongsa, Batam, Riau Islands, with approximately the same redundant capacity.

This is being done to ensure that there is a mutual backup if the data centre is used in the future but with the new State Capital, the third government data centre will be built later. In addition, the construction of the fourth data centre will take place in Labuan Bajo, which is in East Nusa Tenggara. Minister Johnny said that the lack of undersea volcanic activity that has the potential to disrupt data centre services was the driving factor for the most recent location selection.

Minister Johnny indicated three primary factors to be considered in relation to the development of the data centre. To begin, there is the possibility that sufficient power supply capacity or electricity in big numbers will become available. The availability of a sufficient fibre optic cable network comes in second, followed by the provision of a redundant service.

He also mentioned the 2022 Indonesian Digital Financial Economy Festival which will showcase the latest innovations in product and service delivery, as well as a synergy of digital economic and financial policy. This synergy is made stronger by a shared commitment, which was made possible by the creation of the National Synergy Movement for Digital Economy and Finance.

This event is related to the 3rd Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting (FMCBG) and G20 Finance Track: Finance and Central Bank Deputies (FCBD), which will take place from 11-15 July 2022. It will include people from different fields, such as academia and international organisations.
