Improving governance data is key to increasing competitiveness in today’s digital era.
In the implementation of One Indonesia Data, there are 5 important challenges that need to be prioritized, including the following.
First, the scale of data governance, there are 632 data trustees throughout Indonesia (84 ministries and agencies, 34 provinces, 514 districts, and cities). Thousands of supporting data guardians in provinces and districts or cities, as well as tens of thousands of data producers in ministries, institutions, and regions.
Second, the scale of the data substance, the absence of a unique understanding of each data concept, the mismatch between data production and data requirements, the low implementation of data standards and cross-sectoral metadata standards, and the lack of participation of ministries and agencies in data registration and priority data proposals. optimal utilization of data to support development, as well as the absence of limited data tagging and open data.
Third, policies harmonization, there are still various provisions regarding data governance in the internal scope, both central and local government agencies, there is no harmonization of regulations at the central and regional levels, and technical regulations regarding SDI at the regional level are not yet complete, and there is no effective coordination. cross-sector as well as central and local.
Fourth, data integration and sharing, data platforms of ministries, institutions, and regions that are not yet interoperable, the reluctance of K/L/D to share data through the One Data Indonesia Portal; and there is no data access gate to support data security.
Fifth, the HR factor, the absence of a strategy for the availability of sustainable digital talent human resources; at least 30,000 talents are needed; and the unequal distribution of digital leaders for decision making.
One Data Indonesia’s journey has not been smooth, there are many challenges in every Ministry/Agency and local government, especially during the Covid-19 period in 2020 and 2021.
The One Data Indonesia assessment in 2021 shows that the maturity level of the implementation of One Indonesia Data both at the Central level and at the Regional level still requires a lot of encouragement.
At the central level, aspects of regulation and data management and utilization are the best performing aspects, however, aspects of financing, institutional aspects, and aspects of human resources still need improvement.
At the regional level, aspects of data management and utilization, as well as institutional aspects, show a fairly high score, but regions still need support from the HR aspect, implementation aspect, and financing aspects.
The results of the One Data Indonesia assessment show that Satu Data Indonesia requires funding and human resources support to encourage the implementation of SDI at the Central and Regional levels.
