Overview

Leveraging data sharing to enable transformation in service delivery
With the increased demand for government to deliver better services, data sharing has emerged as a critical tool to enable agencies to collaborate to meet these expectations. Data sharing offers clear advantages to achieving strategic objectives such as enhanced productivity, greater opportunity for enhanced decision making and a singular view of the customer. However, with greater privacy expectations, agencies can often be risk averse and miss out on the benefits of data sharing.
