We are delighted to partner with the SAP Institute for Digital Government on researching important issues relating to use of digital technology in the public sector. We have depth of expertise in data analytics, digital support for decision making and complex service delivery that we will harness for this collaboration with SAP as it works to support the development of digital government processes relating to social protection.

It is impressive to see the launch of a think tank with a focus on how digital innovation can transform social protection.
