Mobile technologies are changing the way governments work on domestic policy priorities
The emergence of new media technologies and social communication tools has replaced the age-old existing legacy systems, transforming the way we live and think. From a business point of view, technologies such as cloud, virtualisation and consumerisation of IT are a few trends that are transforming trade worldwide. As that happens, governments and social organisations across the globe are awakening to the power of technology. Newer technologies are changing the way governments work on domestic policy priorities. Innovation is nurturing new ideas and programmes, with one common denominator, mobile technology. And if the Modi government’s ‘digital India campaign’ is anything to go by, then diplomacy is perhaps amidst a technological revolution, greater than we would admit. Let’s take a step back.
