A few words from Jacobs Edo, PMP for his book “Digital Transformation: Evolving a Digitally Enabled Nigerian Public Service”: “Governments in developing countries today are grappling with a myriad challenge of governing in very demanding times. Fewer budgetary resources, legacy overhead from longstanding institutional inefficiencies, limited access to training resources, a more demanding public now enamoured to the always on, online real-time access to services and information. All these factors have worked to exacerbate this situation. As a result, the challenges of governance in a developing environment in transition, has never been so great.
In all this turmoil, government officials are generally aware that there exist several systems and automated alternatives that specifically address a these challenges, in a cost effective and performance manner, but don't have accurate but accessible information about what specific solutions are available, how the various technology solutions address these type of burgeoning needs or what the best practice approaches are towards implementing these digital transformations.”
“Digital Transformation: Evolving a Digitally Enabled Nigerian Public Service” was written to bridge this existing knowledge gap and provide clear answers to the reader looking for answers. It is written in a clear but detailed manner, so as to provide a guide towards understanding the technology solution concepts, the specific scenarios where they can be applied especially in the context of developing environments, and the best approaches to be taken towards implementing such solutions while being aware of critical issues impacting execution. It would serve as a long term solution reference that is relevant at all stages of moving government forward through a digital transformation effort.The final goal is to empower governments of developing countries like Nigeria with the knowledge and tools required to provide sustainable long term solutions for and to the benefit of their people.
