The SmartGovernment vision is that of a data driven Nordic region, where data and digitisation enable value creation by sharing data across the region in an automatic, intelligent and secure manner.

The vision can be realised through interoperable ecosystems of digital solutions. The ecosystem provides real time business data for Business-to-Business and for Business-to-Government, and meets the need of Nordic SMEs for less administrative burdens, innovation and growth.

Nordic SmartGovernment is thus a driver of an integrated Nordic region, which is the ambition of the Nordic Prime Ministers.

SmartGovernment is an idea of making digital solutions a part of a digital ecosystem, which supports exchange of real time data between a multitude of systems and authorised parties. The ecosystem supports work processes and thus manual entering of data is replaced by automatic processes, which increases the quality of data. Such an ecosystem enables easier access to data for innovation, as data becomes available for development of new products and services. The value of making financial data available to B2B in the Nordic region is enormous.

The Nordic SmartGovernment project has the SMEs financial data in focus. However, in principle, the SmartGovernment vision encompasses all kinds of data which is now reported from businesses to government authorities.
