About EGOV6

Automation and computing are undergoing several changes that impact all its facets including computing platforms, applications, databases, virtual and augmented reality technologies, management and governance practices, technical support services, and the ever-changing IT security landscape. Though many technologies have reached an advanced level of maturity, the pace of change causes maturity either to be short termed or a mere theoretical concept without any concrete practical base.
E-Government programs are considered, by far, one of most complex automation projects that governments embark on. The complexity stems from the need to destabilize the prevailing norm that governed government procedures and agencies for decades. Business processes, in government agencies, have been paper-based or slightly partially automated silos. Each government agency has its processes independent from those of other government agencies. E-Government agencies have to deal with this complexity and bring everybody into a streamlined, integrated, automated, and always available government services. E-Government agencies have, at the same time, to keep pace with ever-changing information and communications technologies.
No event with a limited period can cover all the changes that influence automation projects, and specifically, e-Government program development. Therefore, the sixth E-Government Forum (EGOV6) will focus on a limited number of change aspects. EGOV6 will focus on discussing change management aspects in four technology specific areas as follows:
  • Change management in computing infrastructure.
  • Change management in business processes.
  • Change management in information security.
  • Change management in information management services.
As noticed, the above main topics focus on the human resources aspects, in addition to the technical elements. Advanced technologies and powerful computing platforms did not eliminate the need for more specialized human capabilities that can make use of these advanced technologies.
NoufEXPO, in collaboration with the Central Agency for Information Technology (CAIT), will hold the sixth E-Government Forum – Managing Change towards Digitization from 4 – 6 December 2018 at Al-Baraka Ballroom – Crowne Plaza Hotel. The Forum will focus on the change management practices that need to be implemented in order to boos e-Government program implementation and make the best use of all available resources along the way.


The sixth E-Government Forum – Managing Change towards Digitization aims to empower Kuwait’s E-Government program owners by introducing them to:
  • The undergoing changes affecting information technology industry.
  • How organizations can benefit from these changes to boost implementing their e-government programs.
  • Requirements of human resources development strategies to cope with change.
  • World-class experiences that can help e-government agencies achieve their targets.
  • How to develop effective human capabilities that can mitigate and encounter cybercrime.
  • New governance and management practices to boost the efficiency of e-government agencies.
