VIDEO: Evolution of the Estonian digital ecosystem ({{commentsTotal}})

Andres Kütt, chief architect and adviser for the Estonian Information System Authority (RIA), and Liina Areng, Head of International Relations for RIA, discussed the evolution of the Estonian digital ecosystem at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a Washington-based think tank.

In the video by CSIS, Kütt gives an overview of both the opportunities and challenges of Estonian e-governance, explaining the basics of the country's digital infrastructure and how this relates to legislative and social processes. In addition, he discusses the enablers of Estonia's digital evolution - the trust and cooperation between stakeholders, ubiquitous electronic identity, and critical competence, among others.

Kütt's talk departs from a belief that how Estonia developed its digital solutions is more interesting than the solutions themselves.

The discussion is moderated by Daniel Chenok, Executive Director for IBM's Center for the Business of Government.

Kütt and Areng also introduced Estonian e-governance systems to Megan Smith, the Chief Technology Officer of the United States. In addition, they will talk about e-Estonia in the George Mason University, Virginia, and the US Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis, as well as hold bilateral meetings in several US government agencies, the World Bank and the Organization of American States.
