Editorial Reviews

Review

How well a country manages to make progress in this area [digitization] will decide its future - no more and no less... [In this book] Jacobs Edo makes a valuable contribution towards ensuring [that] successful future for Nigeria.
Professor Dr. Axel UHL is the deputy head of the institute for Business Information Technology at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences.

It will be Nigerian entrepreneurs and business leaders who create the country's digital offerings for the world to buy, but this will be difficult without the right support from government.
Rob LLEWELLYN - Digital Business Transformation Advisor

This book actually provides a methodological background which can be used by any country to justify and jumpstart its own national digital transformation.
Alexander SAMARIN Consultant Enterprise Architect. He obtained PhD in computer graphics in 1986.He worked for a variety of international clients in Switzerland, UK, France,Australia and Africa. 
Edo doesn't only make a case for the need for digitization in Nigeria's public service with the goals of efficiency, in system and people, but also goes through a very wide and comprehensive range of associated issues, from its implementability thorough its wealth-creating opportunities and to how it can create values and enhance national social and cultural goals.
EsemaAGUSE is a Nigerian development politician currently enrolled at Harvard Business School

From the Author

"Like slavery, like apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and can be overcome by the actions of human beings" - Nelson Mandela.
Isn't this a paradox? Throughout the developing world, governments, companies, organizations and institutions have been trying to eliminate global poverty to no avail, yet the world of economic growth and technological innovation are moving faster than ever. Ending poverty is a big and complex challenge indeed. It has many causes, and there is certainly no silver bullet or single solution, but this complexity is solvable. There are a huge number of smart and talented people all over the developing world, doing amazing work in business, technology and entrepreneurship. There is need to further leverage their works, skills and collective numbers for increased impact and visibility - this is why I want to join hands and contribute through my book - Digital Transformation: Evolving a digitally enabled Nigerian Public Service.

Growing up in Nigeria, I have come to appreciate first-hand the pains and challenges associated with poverty, often attributable to literacy, ignorance, disease, mis-information or the total lack of it not to mention climate change, health care, good governance and energy access. Digital Transformation will open the eyes of the public especially professionals young and old to the rampant problems in the country and will encourage readers to join in moving into the future of a better and stronger Nigerian that will curb illiteracy, ignorance and disease.

"Digital Transformation: Evolving a Digitally Enabled Nigerian Public Service" was written to bridge this existing knowledge gap and provide clear answers to the reader looking for answers. It is written in a clear but detailed manner, so as to provide a guide towards understanding new technology solution concepts, the specific scenarios where they can be applied especially in the context of developing environments, and the best approaches to be taken towards implementing such solutions while being aware of critical issues impacting execution.  It would serve as a long term solution reference that is relevant at all stages of moving government forward through a digital transformation effort. The final goal is to empower governments of developing countries like Nigeria with the knowledge and tools required to provide sustainable long term solutions for and to the benefit of their people.
