The concept of GovTech stands for a progressive approach of governments towards digitalisation and a more tech-friendly development pathway. The ultimate goal is to ensure improvement in delivery of government services, smooth functioning of operations, and increase in efficiency and transparency in the public sector.
Under the GovTech umbrella, there’s a huge suite of technologies and initiatives built to bring about a transformation in how governments deal with people, and how are various processes or departments governed.
In achieving this ambitious goal of GovTech across sectors, governments of different countries are seeking assistance from open innovation ecosystems, such as EarlyBirds, to better serve their citizens. The Australian OSINT (OpenSource Intelligence) platform with services helps governments select innovative tech features and novel solutions which hold the potential to lead substantial growth.

GovTech is designed to provide better services, modernise government operations, boost accountability, and deliver enhanced experience to those interacting with government agencies. It aims to make public services more accessible to the masses by connecting government with tech innovators in the digital age.
Building digital platforms that allow citizens to avail services, such as tax filing, voter registration, and permit applications, online has added convenience for both, government and the public. Furthermore, open data initiatives have led to higher public transparency, lesser corruption, and increased innovation.
While IoT (Internet of Things) has let governments undertake better urban planning and infrastructure development, data analytics solutions have aided nations in making more efficient data-driven decisions, predicting trends, and resource allocations in diverse fields, be it law enforcement, public health, or transportation.
