The purpose of the Digital Success Software Package, which is available for free, is to provide opportunity for all groups of age to access the digital world and to further strengthen the spread of such open source software, which can mean a legitimate alternative to closed source programmes that require subscription to use. The Digital Success Software Package is a set of Hungarian operation system and user software, which is easy to download and to use, can substitute expensive operation systems and office programmes with its open source solutions, while it also enables working, studying, entertainment and managing public administration affairs electronically. The Digital Success Software Package was brought to life by the cooperation of several Hungarian infocommunication companies coordinated by the Digital Success Programme that continues to regard the management and development of the software package as one of its highest priorities. The project was brought to life with the support of the Ministry for Innovation and Technology.
Digitális Jólét Program (DJP), Digital Success Programme in English, launched by the Government of Hungary in late 2015 – relying on the results of InternetKon, a national consultation about the Internet and digital developments –, aﬀects the entire digital ecosystem and aims for every Hungarian citizen and business to benefit from digitalisation. Strategies that will steer digital development in the coming years have been devised within the framework of DJP: Digital Education Strategy of Hungary, Digital Export Development Strategy of Hungary, Digital Startup Strategy of Hungary, Digital Child Protection Strategy of Hungary. Moreover, we have executed several important decisions, regarded as determining in European standards as well, together with all stakeholders of the digital ecosystem, such as decreasing the VAT of the Internet in two steps, from 27 to 18, then to 5 per cent. In 2017 the Government of Hungary decided to extend the Digital Success Programme and to accept the Digital Success Programme 2.0., which was a strategy for gaining digital advantage, as its digitalisation-supporting programmes covered almost every field of the digital development of the Hungarian economy, the operation of the state, and the Hungarian society. The future of the Digital Success Programme is defined by the strategic framework of DJP2030, which builds upon the success of DJP 1.0 and DJP 2.0, however it also perceives the challenges of development, and the disadvantages of competition besides the opportunities. That is why one of the main tasks of the Digital Success Programme 2030, the continuation of DJP, is to make suggestions for such new solutions and institutions, which are able to decode and handle the global challenges and opportunities created by digitalisation, in international cooperation as well. The starting point of DJP is that the state is responsible for the digital wellbeing of its citizens, therefore the central theme of DJP2030 is digital state governance.
