In the city of Semarang, the Central Java Governor, Ganjar Pranowo, attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the Central Java Data Center Building.

All Central Javan regencies, cities, and regional institutions should be able to make the best use of the data center. The data center might hasten the region’s transition to digital public services.
“We hope that this data center will accelerate the digitalization process,” said Ganjar .
Ganjar added that the Central Java data center’s development was a step toward putting the Electronic Based Government System into place (SPBE). Therefore, the efforts of Central Java Province to become a smart province may be instantly accomplished.
“Now it is centered here, and we are assisted by BSSN,” said Ganjar.
At same time, Ganjar also unveiled the Central Java Gayeng online radio station, which is run by the provincial government of Central Java.
