A Masterclass in Open Data and mGovernment hosted by Dr. Jonathan Reichental

A learning opportunity you really can’t afford to miss

Peer Review is proud to be bringing Dr Jonathan Reichental to Dubai to present a Masterclass in the art of Open Data and the importance of mGovernment services.

The class, which has been designed and developed by Dr Reichental, will be held over two days with workshops that delve into the benefits, strategies and implementation of Open Data initiatives, as well as the importance of providing mGovernment services to an increasingly demanding population.

Open Data and m-Government are the foundations upon which tomorrow’s data-driven economy and 24/7 public service delivery models will be built. Leveraging and maximising on the opportunities these platforms provide will be the key differentiator between smart governments and their lesser counterparts.
