CodeCloud is
Working with Government
To realize the Smart Nation dream

A Smart Nation In the Cloud is working with Singaporean government agencies to realize the vision of a Smart Nation. There is no one definiton for what a true Smart Nation is; however, we are working to craft that notion as a concrete term for other nations to follow. We look forward to working with coders from around the world, to propel this initiative.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong "Singapore must take full advantage of its extensive and systematic use of technology, particularly I.T."

We will build up the IDA because it plays a key role in spearheading the development of a smart nation – growing the culture and the mindset of experimentation. We must be willing to try new approaches constantly, pushing the boundaries both inside and outside the government to find new approaches to existing problems. [...] We have the people, we have the resources and we have the ability to make it happen. One important advantage which we must take full advantage of is to use technology extensively and systematically, particularly IT. Not just piecemeal, individual gadgets, individual programmes and systems – that we are already doing.

Steve Leonard, ExecutiveDeputy Chairman of the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore"find ways to use data innovatively"

"How do we dashboard everything that happens on the island so that we can improve performance to benefit citizens of all ages and businesses of all sizes? [..] We cannot have a Smart Nation unless we can find ways to use data innovatively"

Teresa Carlson, Vice President, Amazon Web Services "try things, fail fast and learn"

If you are not thinking about it in a disruptive way, if you do it the way you’ve always done it, you will get what you always got. [...] Cloud allows you to try things, fail fast and learn from those failures.

Amr Awadallah, Chief Technology Officer of Cloudera "Bring the applications to the data"

If you have data spread out across multiple systems, you do not know your customer anymore. You lose that holistic perspective. [...] Instead of copying the data to go where the application is, have the application go where the data is. Bring the applications to the data. Big data is about this more than anything else.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong"The Smart Nation is not just a slogan"

The Smart Nation is not just a slogan – it is a rallying concept for all of us to work together to transform our future together because there are endless possibilities waiting to be dreamed of.
