  • 10/28/11 IDA has 4 main roles: Infocomm Industry Developer - IDA’s role is to develop a vibrant and competitive information technology and communications industry. This is done by ensuring a conducive business environment, encouraging effective and fair competition in the telecoms industry and ensuring that consumers and businesses receive competitive services. IDA also strives to build a richer ecosystem of Singapore-based local and foreign ICT companies, enhancing their capabilities and developing a skilled workforce to drive the industry. Gvoernment CIO - IDA’s second role is the masterplanning, project-management and implementation of infocomm systems and capabilities for the Singapore Government. Sectoral Transformation - Another important role is spearheading the transformation of key economic sectors, Government and society through more sophisticated and innovative use of infocomm. IDA works closely with various stakeholders in sectors such as education, healthcare and finance to generate and pilot innovative ideas. IDA also actively encourages local SMEs to adopt ICT as well as foster availability and adoption of ICT to achieve digital inclusion. People Sector Enrichment – IDA’s 4 th role is to enrich citizen’s lives by promoting and raising the infocomm saviness of key people sector clusters, thereby raising the overall infocomm sophistication and achieving digital inclusion. All these roles are underpinned by enablers such as the infocomm infrastructure, manpower development and infocomm policy.
  • 10/28/11 iN2015 features three themes - innovation, integration and internationalisation – all seeking to bring about the vision of iN2015 to develop Singapore as an intelligent nation, a global city, powered by infocomm.
  • Singapore continues to perform in 2009 and has consistently ranked top in Asia economy. IMD – International Institute for Management Development World Competitiveness Yearbook Ranking EIU – Economist Intelligence Unit e-readiness ranking

  • 10/28/11 iN2015 has six key goals, with two main outcomes in mind. The first outcome is the growth and competitiveness of the infocomm industry through increasing the value-added of infocomm industry, increasing the infocomm export revenue and adding additional jobs in the infocomm industry.
  • 10/28/11 iN2015 has six key goals, with two main outcomes in mind. The first outcome is the growth and competitiveness of the infocomm industry through increasing the value-added of infocomm industry, increasing the infocomm export revenue and adding additional jobs in the infocomm industry.
  • 10/28/11 IDA has identified three key building blocks to meet our goal to be an intelligent nation and globally competitive market: Infocomm Infrastructure – Next Generation National Infocomm Infrastructure has both wired and wireless components. Wired: Next Generation Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN). Wireless: Wireless@SG. Sectoral Transformation – Enabling use and enhancement of infocomm in different key economic sectors such as healthcare and education. Transforming how the Government utilises infocomm to communicate with each other and with the public. Ensuring that everyone in society has access and the skills to use infocomm in daily life. Infocomm Manpower – Building up a competent, competitive and infocomm-savvy workforce by attracting local talents to study infocomm and enter a infocomm career.
  • 10/28/11 One key building block is building an easily-accessible and reliable national infocomm infrastructure, which has become as essential as highways, seaports and airports are to economies. With more services delivered online, key economic sectors will increasingly rely on this infrastructure for the functioning of their businesses.
  • By 2010, 60 per cent of homes and offices can expect to have access to this new, ultra high-speed, all-fibre network. The network coverage is expected to reach 95 per cent by 2012. It is envisioned that this will eventually provide a nationwide ultra-high speed broadband access of 1Gbps and more, to all physical addresses including homes, schools, government buildings, businesses and hospitals. At the start of its operations, the network is expected to offer users a broadband speed of up to 1 Gbps.
  • The Singapore Internet Exchange (SGIX) is established as a neutral Internet Exchange to enhance the Internet environment for local and international IP traffic. It has established two nodes in different locations within Singapore that will form the core of the Internet Exchange. It will play an important role in the deployment of services over the Next Generation National Broadband Network by allowing the efficient exchange of traffic, reducing latency and ensuring sustainable performance for bandwidth-intensive services to be optimally delivered to the end-users. The shared ownership of the SGIX facilitates self-regulation by the members and ensures that the SGIX aligns to the interests of its members from the infocomm industry. The Data Centre Park (DCP) project aims to develop a specialised industrial park that offers a conducive, efficient and cost-competitive environment for data centres (DC), and to attract content providers, telecoms companies and MNCs to Singapore. The proposed development of a DCP will help to address several of the key issues that DC providers face today. These are to improve the cost and energy efficiency of DCs by providing cost savings through efficient energy infrastructure, to ensure resiliency by designing and deploying redundant infrastructure, and to increase speed to market by customising industrial park guidelines and by demarcating ready plots of land for DC development.
  • The National Authentication Framework (NAF), spearheaded by IDA, with support from the Monetary Authority of Singapore and Ministry of Finance, will be a nationwide platform where consumers can enjoy consistent experience in using strong authentication to access key online services and a more rigorous process of verifying online identities. With NAF, online service providers such as government agencies and financial institutions will be able to outsource their second-factor authentication infrastructure to trusted third parties authentication operators. 10/28/11
  • IDA launched the first Call-for-Proposal (CFP) in the second half of 2009, as part of its larger efforts to develop a thriving retail services layer that leverages the Next Gen National Infocomm Infrastructure, and to quickly deploy useful and impactful next gen services for the nation to adopt Lighthouse series – Information Sharing sessions
