The Services and Digital Economy Technology Roadmap (SDE TRM) was launched on 22 November 2018 and is an important part of Singapore’s Digital Economy Framework for Action. It provides a scan of the digital technology landscape in the next 3 to 5 years, identifying the impact of key shifts and technology trends.
Services 4.0 was identified as a key engine of growth for Singapore’s digital economy as the services industry accounts for 72% of our GDP. This roadmap will enable business across sectors to harness technology and innovate, equipping their workers with new skills and capturing opportunities in the digital marketplace to deliver customer-centric experiences.
