Digitisation

On the 25th of April 2018, the Government Council devised the strategy «Digital Administration 2018–2023». The strategy presents the way in which the administration intends to help shape digital developments and seize the opportunities that come with digitisation. As chancellor, I am in charge of the implementation of the strategy and its incentive programme.

The people are at the heart of our «Digital Administration 2018–2023» strategy. In order to reach the people of the Canton of Zurich even better in the future, we are rethinking our cantonal administrative processes for our population and businesses.

For the series «Digitization and Us», I have visited a large variety of employees to talk about the challenges and opportunities – but also the potential risks – of digitisation in their lines of work and everyday tasks and duties. Take a look:
