ESTONIA – A DIGITAL TRAILBLAZER
With 1.3 million population and hardly any known IT company to boast of, Estonia leads the world in technology adoption in a manner, which can be just be envied but rarely replicated.
Since 1997 it’s been at the forefront of e-governance and IT revolution and has always maintained a formidable lead. Quite interestingly, govt. is leading this mission, with work, one of its kind professionalism, consistently and has been on a delivery oriented.[ will you look at this sentence structure?] Generally 3000 services are digital available.
The hack / breach / attack on its critical infrastructure in 2008 brought to the fore the vulnerabilities of the system. Now with a central of excellence in Cyber Security and lots of other measures, it runs one of the most robust IT systems in the world.
Once technology adoption becomes a habit, you are not ready to be challenged by any new technology. This is what Estonia epitomises. The Bitcoin & backend technology Blockchain is making waves in this country and would shortly start providing adoption models of this technology which the world can replicate.
COUNTRY’S LOVE FOR INNOVATION CAN TRANSFORM IT INTO AN INFORMATION SOCIETY.
