  2. 2. Introduction • The potential for a synergy between Japan and Indonesian economies is enormous. Indonesia is a dynamic country with a relatively young population characterised by diversity, growing middle class, plenty of room for innovation • The maturity of Japan such as advanced technology, sophisticated life-style, and its experience on managing its development, both successes and failures, could help Indonesia to exploit its demographic for the long time to come • From the production side Indonesia needs to revitalise manufacturing and services sectors as well as resource base sector treating them as a value chain to be integrated with the global network • In other words to narrow the productivity gap

This would require building up data analytic capability within the organization • This includes practicing evidence-based management, building evidence-based decision-making culture and recognizing the evolving landscape of due to the big data and digital revolution • to identify the opportunity of which decision process can be transformed with analytic model, to embed the results of data analytic into decision process to improve organizational performance • to measure the impact of analytical transformation through surveys, data collection in the feedback loop mode
  8. 8. Higher education as a part of the innovation system • Self-serving silo systems • Public, private sector and universities • In higher education over emphasizing on publication in the indexed international journal (SCOPUS) • R&D is rarely going beyond the lab and prototype • The missing link between lab scale and commercialization of R&D
  9. 9. The prospect of long-distance online education Indonesia is bright though the challenges are also daunting: Lack of vision • No understanding that education institutions have a new breed of customers that they need to cultivate • Organizational culture that inhibits the rapid development and the release of new technology • Inability to come up with measures to adapt the existing working system with rapidly evolved new techniques, tools and capabilities • A lack of trust in digital services and technologies • Overly concerned about reliability, security and resilience • Digital literacy
