Another round table discussion of that is happening to this country's ICT initiatives. The meeting lasted for 4 hours. I don't know if the insight I gave would be included in the paper these guys are supposed to present in the national council. I've said my piece and it's all up to them to get it through the lines of congress and through the legislators in the upper house to decide on what direction to take.
ICT initiatives on a national level is a long fought battle and still being fought worst on the grounds of a Local Government Unit (LGU) who by the way gather and interact with the people and get information from the grassroots of society. Issues like standardization of data, metadata still has a long way to go. National Government Agencies pushing systems left and right with no intention of regulating and integrating these is making life in the LGU worst.
I just hope they run out of bullets first to fire at LGUs who tries to evade the consequences of bad ICT initiatives and implementation which will then go to the archives of horror stories of which the victims are the LGUs.
