Session 3 – Smarter Governments: Transformative Models and Big Datas.

We can now view the flow of data as its own ecosystem, with data being gathered from all corners of society, including governments, businesses, organizations and individuals. Decision makers should support innovation that will amplify ideas, and turn them into reality. Governmental support and funding of these projects will help diversify the usability of data by enabling small businesses to reach a big customer base. – From the speech by Samia Melhem, Lead ICT Policy Specialist, World Bank Group
