NEC is focusing on DGDF as one of its company-wide growth businesses and is supporting the digitalization of government and financial institutions from the perspective of consumers. In the DG field, NEC has provided various software services to government and public institutions in the United Kingdom and Denmark. In the DF field, we have provided advanced software mainly for wealth management, which is expected to grow in Europe and Asia.

NEC also provides solutions that utilize its cutting-edge technologies, such as biometric authentication and artificial intelligence (AI), to governments and public institutions around the world, including the United States, Latin America, Asia and Australia.

In this white paper, NEC demonstrates how the DGDF market will change amid various environmental changes (megatrends) around the world, and the role NEC can play through its thought leadership activities (*).

In the 2030s, the conditions influencing governments, businesses and consumers will undergo major changes due to changes in the external environment, such as climate change and global issues, as well as the development and spread of technologies such as virtual spaces and AI. This white paper summarizes the megatrends that NEC believes cannot be overlooked in the DGDF market.

Based on NEC's experience with DGDF projects, it is providing insight into what governments and companies must do in order to support the well-being of a society in which no one is left behind. This has been summarized in the following six contribution areas and two key concepts.
