The Jakarta Post Outlook 2020: Innovating Talents for The Digital Economy

Startups on the rise and digital transformation are taking place in conventional industries, from manufacturing to agriculture and mining to food and beverage. More tech-related skills and knowledge than ever before are required in the workforce today, as Indonesia is on track to become Southeast Asia’s largest digital economy by 2025, while the fourth industrial revolution is taking shape in local corporations.

The problem is tech studies in local universities are not yet as prevalent and diverse as in more developed countries. Vocational and polytechnic schools – and the broader education system in Indonesia – have been slow in adapting to technological changes as well. Graduates of vocational schools, who are meant to secure jobs right after graduation, also ranked highest in terms of the unemployment rate, even lower than elementary school graduates.

In light of such opportunities and challenges, how should Indonesia’s workforce prepare for the future of work?

The Jakarta Post Outlook 2020: Digital Hub

The “digital hub” concept is something that came organically for Silicon Valey in the San Francisco Bay Area that is home to companies from Apple and Twitter to Facebook and Tesla. But for Indonesia, Sinarmas Land’s digital hub in BSD city is closest to Silicon Valey, with the presence of Apple Developer’s Academy and Plug and Play’s BSD Innovation Labs.

The concept remains unfamiliar to many in Indonesia, although the country is said to be poised to lead Southeast Asia’s digital economy in 2025. Digital hubs’ promise of high data speed will allow for seamless use of data, from teleconference meetings to multimedia interaction in work, thereby creating a dynamic environment that is expected to spur creativity and innovation.

However, limitations such as the presence of digital hubs which are limited to BSD only at present, and unfamiliarity of corporations and the workforce on digital hubs, as well as limited government support so far in promoting more digital hubs, have served as challenges to further develop the digital hub concept in Indonesia beyond Greater Jakarta.

The seminar will look into the prospects of digital hubs in Indonesia, the performance of BSD Digital Hub so far, expected innovative and creative outcomes relative to other digital hubs of the world, as well as challenges the industry faces in developing digital hubs in Indonesia.
