Building a World-Leading Scottish Digital Nation
The purpose of Digital Scotland is to support and help accelerate the Scottish Government’s ambition for the country to become a world leading digital nation.
This mission will be realized through a number of major programs:
Best practices community
DigitalScot.net provides a community publishing platform, so that members can join, connect with others and share their expertise through blogs. The site will build a knowledge base of best practices supporting Scottish companies to develop and implement digital transformation strategies.
We welcome one-off or regular blogs on a variety of topics, particularly those that explore a vision for a future Digital Scotland and what practical actions are required to realize that vision.
Solution partner network
For members who would like to be more directly involved we will build out a digital services and solutions partner network, so that these best practices can be made accessible to Scottish organizations seeking to improve their digital operations.
This will build out the capacity to support Scottish businesses undertaking digital transformation initiatives, provide suppliers with a collaborative partner program and international growth support.
Digital economy infrastructure ventures
Through deployment of technologies including Cloud computing and the Blockchain, Digital Scotland will build out the core infrastructure needed for the 21st century digital economy. This will provide capabilities across a spectrum of needs ranging from small business IT through digital education.
Each project will be developed and launched as a new standalone business venture, creating investor opportunities and building out a general capacity for fast-tracking more hyper-scale startups.
We welcome volunteer participation. Contact us to discuss your ideas.
