Digital Government is one of the Digital Economy Frameworks supporting and steering Thailand towards Digital Economy using technology as important instrument to develop the country based on people – centric requirement. As President and CEO of Electronic Government Agency (Public Organization) or EGA, I am full of honor and delight to be part to put forward public sector’s means of integrating data and information, making Thailand accomplish its mission of transforming to Digital Era. Government’s method mentioned is to bring electronic tools or a variety of technologies to reform government’s operation system in order to bare fruitful and efficient public service, to be able to serve people’s needs, to economically save cost and time, including improving quality of life to be comparable to people worldwide. Being recognized a number of missions by the Government, many projects have been particularly managed and processed by EGA such as Data Center Consolidation. EGA has been making responsibility in the study of data centerc onsolidation platform connecting all data together, building data storage and access, and also appropriate investment plan. In addition, the reformation will upshift former attitude held by government bodies that the data fed in only possessed by their divisions but instead are central property and are able to be integrated and utilized. If everything mentioned above becomes fully practical, it will pave way to the DigitaEl conomy policy transformation.
I believe IT content and knowledge in this Techno Society magazine will compliment readers by widening your knowledge scope and conceiving the importance and benefits of IT including adapting it for life in preparation to having Digital Government under Digital Economy policy in the future.
