Digital Strategy Summary

  • The strategy has been prepared following input from a wide range of Government and external sources including champions from across Government, a public survey, focus groups, industry input and external benchmarking.

  • The strategy includes a vision for the use of digital services in Isle of Man Government – both in online services and in frontline services, and lays down four measurable targets

  • Three core digital principles are proposed to sit across Government – Thinking DigitallyWorking Together and Learning Intelligently.

  • The final element represents nine digital programmes - programmes of change - across the main Government areas and enabling programmes that together set out the direction, defines the current projects and identifies potential candidates for acceleration.
