e-State 2020

Becoming a digital government

We are living in times of seismic change.

The pace of technological progress is accelerating. The details of our daily lives are almost unrecognizable from just a few years ago. Digital is everywhere we look…bank, shop, socialize, study, travel….

Governments know that they need to embrace fast-changing technology; but do they know where digital will take them? How do governments shape their digital journey when the destination  is not always known?

The Atos e-State 2020 initiative provides governments and large public institutions with a view on how technology will transform governments and states, how they will serve citizens, how they will interact on a country level or with other governments, going beyond today’s frontiers and towards a digital borderless society.

With extensive experience of government initiatives taking place today and the latest technology innovations such as blockchain and artificial intelligence, Atos understands the dramatic impact of technology on today’s society, and how governments should envisage their future and plot their digital journey.
