SAP Institute for Digital Government
Keeping digital government simple for the future


The SAP Institute for Digital Government (SIDG) is a think tank that aims to create value for government by leveraging digital capability to meet the needs of citizens and consumers of government services.

As thought leaders we tackle the complex problems through digital technologies to help keep digital government simple for the future.

Defining digital government

The Institute defines digital government as the production and access to data, services and content, sourced and distributed across the digital ecosystem, to create public value (derived from the OECD definition of digital government).
