KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Digitalisation Initiative which started this year is set to help realise the digital government concept and enhance the delivery system of the state's public service in the new year ahead, says Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor.
He said the initiative is expected to revolutionise the mindset and ways of doing things among the state civil service personnel.
“This will have a high impact on the state public service and boost productivity, ” he said after launching the Smart Library at the state Public Service Department (PSD) in PPNS here Thursday (Dec 31).
He was also briefed on the Sabah Digitalisation Initiative by PSD director (Digital Government Division) Doria Tai.
Hajiji commended the development of the Smart Library, which was one of the projects under the initiative to provide civil servants, for the ability to get information faster.
The Smart Library is equipped with e-book, e-magazine and online e-learning.
He said he hoped more such projects would be developed to facilitate data sharing in realising the digital government concept.
With technology becoming more sophisticated by the day, Hajiji urged all public personnel in Sabah to prepare themselves to embrace the digitalisation system now and in the future.
