Digitalisation is not a technological end in itself, but a driver of growth and futureproofing. The Austrian government's first Digitalisation Report describes the main initiatives and projects that are boosting digital transformation in administration services for society and businesses. It documents no fewer than 125 current projects and initiatives in all departments and shows to what extent Austria's public administration system has already gone digital.
