Integrated platform development for big data in the health sector

Internet of Things (IoT), digitization, big data, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) will affect not only health services delivery but also diagnostics. The fundamental aspect is the data. Health data needs to be standardized so that it can be easily accessed. In addition, data ownership must be clear. Aside from being owned by health facilities, each individual must also own the data.

Venture capital encourages synergy between startups and business ventures

The main challenge of digital development in Indonesia is product innovation, such as designing the most advanced technology. From the startup point of view, this challenge is related to the operational aspect. Indonesia has a huge market, but the challenge is the technology creators and its users are not yet well-literated with technological advancement.

Digital talent development in accelerating digital competitiveness

Research by the IMD World Digital Competitiveness Ranking 2021 showed that Indonesia is ranked 53rd of 63 countries. Another index, Global Innovation Index which measures a country’s innovation capability, reported that Indonesia has remained in the same position from 2018 to 2020, which was the 85th rank.

Technology integration enables nuanced experience in shopping

The development of digitalization is not always about shifting from offline to online; it is also the integration of many things. Although Indonesia’s income per capita is not yet the biggest in Asia, digital adoption in our country is relatively successful. Also, mobile phone ownership grows more exponentially in Indonesia compared to other countries. The pandemic has accelerated the demand to shift from offline to online.

Synergized equal digitalization across the nation

First, we need to foster quality human resources. Indonesia has more than 2,200 startups companies, and will continue to grow. This demonstrates the favorable regulatory which encourage the growth of the startup ecosystem. However, there remains a lack of workforce for the digital economy industry.

Bridging the gap to drive growth through digital distribution

First is the infrastructure issue. Although infrastructure is now progressing in a positive trajectory, some blind spots remain unaddressed. The second issue is productive utilization of technology. Social media usage is already quite good, but the conversion level from usage into economic transactions is not yet sufficient.
