This IDC Government Insights presents the top 10 predictions for the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) or APEJ governments in the year 2014. This study discusses key issues, conditions, and challenges that government officials and organizations must address as they perform their roles and responsibilities in IT strategic planning, investment decision making, and technology program delivery.


In the pursuit of investing in innovative ICTs for organizational relevance, as well as competence and effectiveness, outcome-based measurements must still be in place. Notably, prudence considerations such as transparency, value-for-money practicality, and stakeholders' accountability will continue to dictate the soundness of government investments today.


"The 3rd Platform era of technological change through advances in cloud, analytics, mobile, and social technologies provides an excellent opportunity for APEJ government agencies to pursue more innovative (and even more disruptive) programs aimed at improving productivity and performance," says Gerald Wang, Research Manager, IDC Government Insights Asia/Pacific."Three main themes are noted for the year 2014: 360-degree stakeholder engagements, 3rd Platform service transformations, and a heightened focus on building future competencies with cutting-edge technologies -- all driven by the still-important cost management agenda."
