◆ Main points of Yokohama DX strategy
1. Emphasis on reducing the time (labor) that citizens and staff spend on procedures (see pages 14 and 16 of Frame Section)
In order to clarify milestones, we have set three guidelines, “Periods”, “Steps” and “Values”. In particular, we will focus on reducing the labor required by citizens for administrative procedures and creating time value.
2. Make 100% of the top 100 administrative procedures received annually online by FY2024 (see page 8 of Action)
The top 100 procedures, which account for about 90% of the total number of administrative procedures received annually, will be made online by FY2024 as a priority target for smartphone compatibility. 3. Implementation of initiatives to realize a work style that does not select a place (see page 20 of the Action section)
We will introduce a cloud service to realize a work style that allows city officials to collaborate across organizations regardless of location, and will operate from 2024.
4. Promotion of Digital Ward Offices (See page 24 of Action) Centering on the two model wards (Nishi Ward, Konan Ward), various demonstration experiments will be conducted based on the concept of “Don’t write, don’t wait, don’t go, and connect.”
5 Launched “YOKOHAMA Hack!”, a framework for emergence and co-creation (see page 51 of Action Edition)
An open platform that matches administrative issues (needs) and digital technology proposals (seeds) from private companies, etc. We will launch “YOKOHAMA Hack!” and lead to problem solving and value creation through demonstration experiments.
