A growing number of people around the world are turning to mobile solutions for their public services. With an increasingly mobile-enabled global public, governments that adopt a ‘Mobile First’ attitude are able to deliver greater customer satisfaction, lower costs of delivery and increase efficiency and innovation.

In this era of mobility, the demand for access to information and applications through smart-phones is surging and government departments are putting in place numerous measures to enhance their service delivery. More types and complexity of information are needed, ranging from access to documents and status updates on initiatives to value based transactions and sharing of sensitive information. This session will look at how a Government Department can effectively develop a smart mobility strategy and the privacy and security issues that need to be considered.
