A panel discussion on ‘Digital Transformation of States: A Modern day Face-Lift to Effective Governance through Emerging Technologies’ was held as a part of the Second Edition of Envision Digital Transformation Conclave in Kovalam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala on Septembr 26, 2019. The discussion centered on how various areas are making use of emerging technologies and innovations to provide their citizens with successful e-governance services. This interesting information came to us from Business World in their article, “The utilization of emerging technologies as a tool for effective governance.”

The session focused on governance with technology tools such as artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, machine learning and cloud computing. Departments in every facet of government are trying to solve problems by utilizing data analysis, data crunching, and  analytical tools. The data is collected and the new and emerging technologies are applied to arrive at  beneficial solutions.

Such emerging technologies like IoT are becoming critical for those looking to make such connections.
