Accelerating Digital Transformation

The pandemic has highlighted the urgency of modernizing government systems and propelled agencies forward on their journey to digital transformation. In a recent survey of FCW readers, 71% of respondents said the pandemic had accelerated their agencies’ efforts to modernize IT. A successful digital transformation has certain key elements. Agencies must be able to protect and fully utilize their data, make optimal use of cloud technology, and take advantage of the latest developments in telecommunications.

Those elements are not self-contained, but interlocking and overlapping. Therefore, fitting all the pieces together requires a holistic approach. In a digital-centric government, policymaking and service delivery are driven by data. The customer experience is more satisfying because it has the right balance of security and convenience. Government employees collaborate with one another seamlessly and securely regardless of location. And agencies have agile, intelligent platforms and infrastructure that support innovation in even the most challenging conditions. Achieving that vision is a struggle for many agencies, but there are signs of progress.

As agencies take a more comprehensive approach to modernization, they will make rapid progress on improving public-facing and back-office operations. Learn how that progress will lead to even bigger improvements and the capacity to tackle ever-greater challenges.
