Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak has set a timeframe for the government to become fully digital by 2022.

 

He instructed the Digital Government Development Agency on Wednesday (October 9) to prioritise its proposals and forward them next month to a committee tasked with electronically integrating all government bodies and services.

 

The agency must set out clear goals for every government entity to develop and adapt their services based on digital technology, Somkid said. It will then help them reorganise public policy using the massive state database in order to better serve the public.

 

Somkid also asked the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society to have IT-savvy personnel in all state agencies prepared to be “chief IT officers” overseeing the adoption of digital technology.

 

Kobsak Pootrakool, deputy secretary-general to the prime minister for political affairs, said the Digital Government Development Agency had played a key role in laying the foundation for the process, developing several online applications that benefit citizens.

 

It is also developing a convenient “OSS Foreigner” mobile application for foreigners staying longer than 90 days to report their whereabouts to the Immigration Bureau by supplying the required information and a “selfie” photo.

 

Doing so will save them trekking to the Immigration offices, and the innovation could encourage more foreigners to stay to Thailand, Kobsak said.

What about all the need for original documents and signed copies? Will on department accept that this information has already been supplied to another one?

Oh look further duplication of online/app reporting  for those suspected criminals that are expats. Lets see if the software works and they have enough internet bandwidth and back end support to allow the system to work.

Yes I remember the announcement where they plan to teach kindergarten children how to write computer programmes.

IT-savvy?  What does that even mean?  There are a handful of popular web languages, which ones do they expect to use?  Coding is one challenge.  Knowing what to code is another.   These announcements are for government employees to get their 15 minutes of fame.  They lack any substantive information much like the current government itself.

It is already very difficult to find someone who knows 1x1, in a near future probably impossible!
Most people born and raised in the computer age are destined to no longer use their brains!
