STACK-X Meetup: Data Sharing in today’s Digital Economy for Customer Delivery

### Complete this Zoom Registration Form to receive the webinar link.

As the API Economy leads the way for how Digital Economy activities impact public agencies and local businesses, creating digital solutions to be more responsive to customer delivery processes is a priority. Data-sharing technology is also growing at an accelerated pace as it plays a crucial role in distributing and receiving data to harness numerous and disparate data sources, resulting in robust, cost-effective practices.

Government organisations recognise that responsive, personalised, and efficient government services are not only increasingly expected by citizens, they also result in better mission success, improved cost-effectiveness, and increased citizen trust.

In response to these developments, GovTech has built the Asynchronous Data Exchange (ADEX). ADEX is hosted on the Government on Commercial Cloud (GCC) and serves as a centralised, self-service data exchange and event streaming platform for public agencies and local businesses to share and receive lightweight, real-time data securely.

In this Meetup with GovTech’s ADEX team and Confluent, our speakers will be discussing the various data-sharing solutions used by the public sector and industry to overcome challenges in sharing data efficiently and securely, leading to robust, cost-effective practices.
