Government master data management
As a part of the continuing effort for more efficient and transparent public service, the Korean government has been working on the MDM project for 5 years of phased approach since 2017. The government implemented the ToBeWAY MDM framework to standardize, collect, manage, and share the master data distributed in ministries and institutions.
Towards data-driven e-government
Managing government master data helps government achieve more accurate and consistent digital communication between ministries. Smoother and clear communication brings administrative efficiency up higher by saving time and simplifying processes.
By putting the data-driven government in place, more credible and responsive services of the government can be anticipated. Furthermore, preemptive service is also available by analysis and forecasting derived from data.
By implementing government master data management, the Korean digital government made one more step towards the data-driven public service.
