In my last blog, I discussed how digital transformation has become the most important element of any Business evolution. I explained how telcos offer a wide range of services that cater around its core business, which makes it a perfect example of a “Digital Lifestyle Provider.”
Now, let’s take the example of the Government sector. Governments can also monetize APIs through different ways, which may not be just limited to utilities but sharing the information in a secured way like providing citizen information to banks and financial institutions, travel agencies, law enforcement agencies, visa verification agencies, etc. So, governments can not only offer citizen services through mobile apps but also can use the citizen data for other value added services by partnering with several private enterprises or government agencies.
