The Mohammed Bin Rashid Center for Government Innovation launches, through the “Ibtekr” platform, two comprehensive guides on mechanisms and tools to enhance the use of data analytics in government work, and to tell stories of government innovations. To support innovative ideas, consolidate a culture of government innovation, and build the capabilities of government cadres.
Storytelling is a common method people use to communicate, share experiences, and exchange ideas. It also contributes to giving us an understanding of the past and formulating the future we aspire to in words, not to mention that it is an ideal way to build important partnerships.
Data is gaining importance day by day, making it the new oil of our time. We are in a constant state of accessing data whenever we connect to the internet, use our GPS enabled smartphones, communicate with our friends through social media, chat apps, shop online, and more in our daily practice. At the same time, every activity we do through modern means results in a digital footprint that will not go away. Then comes the turn of tech giants like Facebook, Google, Amazon, Netflix, entertainment companies like Disney, and industry revolutionaries like Uber and Airbnb who continue to leverage our data analytics to innovate, grow their businesses, and increase their profits.
