A collection of articles about how transformative technologies affect governments.
@gov is a digital magazine from KPMG International dedicated to the pressing issues facing global governments today. In this digest, entitled “Open for disruption”, our professionals have collected a series of articles about how transformative businesses and technologies can and will affect governments in the near future.
In the feature article, Charles Collier, Principal at KPMG in the US, examines the challenges and opportunities facing those in charge of governmental technology.
