CTG and SAP Partner on Open Government Thought Leadership Workshop
Participants representing government, academia, and the private sector attended the two-day workshop.
Participants discussed CTG's new approach to helping government decision-makers translate Open Government, Open Data, and Big Data opportunities into public value.
Together with researchers from CTG, the workshop participants:
- Discussed the major gaps in both research and government practice that are hindering researchers, governments, IT industry, and non-government actors from taking full advantage of ICTs and government data.
- Helped to refine CTG’s recent work to develop new conceptual and analytical tools for helping government decision-makers better understand the ways opening government can shift the informational relationships among government, citizens, and other non-government stakeholders in new and innovative ways to deliver value to each and to society.
- Contributed to CTG’s ongoing goal to create new multi-discipline and multi-sector networks capable of working on Open Government and other data-intensive research and practice initiatives.
The workshop is part of a larger program in collaboration with SAP that has both research and practical components, and will produce new conceptual and analytical tools for helping government decision makers better understand the ways opening government can improve informational relationships among government, citizens, and non-government stakeholders.
