To cut a long story short, since 2003 we’ve built and maintained Asia Pacific’s largest international database of public sector administrators and IT executives. It’s called GovNet and it now contains more than 60,000 individual records.
This is more than a list of names and addresses. Each interaction between Alphabet and the members of our government, education, healthcare and security communities – whether through our magazines, online, through awards nominations, at our events, or in interview with our journalists and researchers – is logged to enable us to serve our audience better.
Project plans, areas of interest, technology taxonomies, annual budgets, detailed responses to research questionnaires – it’s a formidable amount of information, and it complements the subject matter expertise of our editors and researchers to ensure that nobody knows the region’s public sector quite like we do.
But please remember that we’re not a list rental company. The GovNet database is a proprietary tool used only by trained Alphabet staff to help them in their jobs. It is not available for use by third parties, and all the information contained within the database is bound by the confidentiality agreements we have made with individuals at the point of data collection.
