Estonian Government CIO among World’s 20 Most Influential People in Digital Government in 2018

Estonian government CIO Siim Sikkut is included among the top 20 in Apolitical's list honouring the World’s 100 Most Influential People in Digital Government in 2018 who are transforming government — and citizens' lives.

Digital technologies are transforming nearly every aspect of our lives, including, increasingly, our governments. In every country and at every level of government, public servants and ministers are having to work out how to reform and reimagine government for the digital era, Apolitical writes. Bringing transformative digital technologies to one of our largest, most complex sectors is difficult work and the people leading this transformation are often as visionary, imaginative and determined as the tech entrepreneurs the media loves to celebrate.

“Great to be in good company of many friends, colleagues, inspirations,” Sikkut replied to Apolitical via his Twitter account, stressing that e-Estonia ise well represented in the top 100 list of most influential people of digital government, with president (2006 – 2016) Toomas Hendik Ilves, former government CIO, Taavi Kotka and European Commissioner for Digital Single Market, Andrus Ansip also present in Apolitical’s list.
