Presented by Antonio Fernandes, Professor of Physics and Mathematics at Uiversity of Cabo Verde. Graduated in Ocean Engineering from Florida Institute of Technology in 1983. Master of Science in

Cabo Verde started its first steps in e-Government solutions in 1998. In almost 20 years many goals have beed accomplished: (i) a private telecommunication network (ii) a data Center (iii) a “factory” for software development (iv) more than 70 e-goverments applications , and counting, some of then recognized and medal recipient (v).

These e-goverment applications have been developed from the start within an “integration concept” framework, with the help of a proprietary Applications Studio called Integrated Government Resource Planning (IGRP). New challanges await on

  • how to involve the private sector
  • which open data model to adapt and how to implement it
  • how to bring in the analythic intelligence (AI) component
  • how to make these efforts sustainable.
