The digital revolution is here and State & Local governments have no choice but to embrace it and evolve. Agencies must deliver a frictionless experience when serving citizens, including coordinating across departments. The future is in coordinated government services, where data flows in real time and can be acted on as it happens. The path is laid with digital technology that provides integration and interoperability with exceptional reliability and low upkeep. Join Software AG Government Solutions to get from here to there.
Integration Key to Digital Transformation in Digital Government:
Government agencies are full of data silos and poorly integrated systems, creating complications and inefficiencies that translate into customer frustration. Integration of IT systems improves service delivery, reduces costs and enables greater transparency—but can be challenging when legacy systems are not undergoing modernization initiatives. Map your journey to get your agency on the path to digital transformation quickly and cost-effectively”
Effective justice and public safety services require accurate information delivered quickly, to many different users. The consequences are too high to accept information that arrives late, incomplete, or full of errors—all results of systems that don’t work well together. Learn how integrating your existing systems reduce these risks, as well as cutting down on error-prone, time-consuming manual processes, to enhance justice and public safety.
Protecting communities through real-time information sharing:
It’s time to start protecting communities with real-time information sharing. The legal system depends on coordination. Every time one link in the justice system receives information that’s inaccurate or incomplete—or doesn’t receive the data at all—the effects can be devastating. The solution ensures your existing technology systems communicate seamlessly with each other, so justice and public safety can be a reality for all.
San Diego gets safer with ARJIS:
ARJIS is a clearinghouse for criminal incidents and records that serves 18 local governments in Southern California, including 81 agencies. By implementing webMethods, ARJIS improved operational efficiency, simplified information access for 11,000 public safety professionals, and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in monthly mainframe maintenance costs.
In health and human services, data that slips between the cracks can result in life-changing consequences. These cracks are caused by a lack of communication between systems and processes. Make sure your staff and patients get access to the data they need, when they need it, while protecting patient confidentiality
Serving citizens through innovative IT:
The digital era brings tremendous opportunity to Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies, but these agencies are challenged by rigid, siloed legacy systems that struggle to meet the complex demands of regulations or take advantage of new opportunities. It’s time to take an enterprise approach to digitalization and data sharing. Improve how you coordinate care, reduce costs, generate insights and serve patients by linking information systems among multiple agencies and citizens.
The Future of Health and Human Services – An Integrated, Citizen-Centric Approach:
The mission of Health and Human Services (HHS) departments is clear: Promoting well-being, ensuring safety, improving health, and enhancing the employment possibilities for the citizens served by the various agencies at every level of government.
Accomplishing that mission, however, is often a challenging endeavor, as comprehensive data is not always available to support the efforts of those delivering the services.
Achieving better access to this critical data is possible through effective and affordable data integration strategies.
The recent pandemic has exposed that, while there is a lot of data available, access to it in a timely fashion and at the right level of detail is the real challenge. The data resides in thousands of distributed systems across the world. All these systems are different, with no common data structure, and are owned and controlled by various organizations.
Integration software allows systems, applications, organizations, countries, and other geopolitical entities to move data across technology boundaries to make it accessible where needed.
The Government Integration Hub, powered by the webMethods integration software, let’s agencies share any date in any format. It is responsible for converting to and from various data structures and standard formats without requiring changes to existing systems. The hub provides standard encryption capabilities to protect data as it is moved to its destination for analysis while managing the complex routing of data providers to data consumers.
While challenges are relevant to emergency response, it is micro-illustrated of a much larger systemic data sharing problem. Some agencies have addressed data sharing by putting integration hubs in places.
The government’s ability to share data across agencies provides:
Agencies utilizing integration hub to their advantage:
As data sharing between government agencies improves by leveraging an integration hub, the ability to audit and provide visibility into the transformation and routing of data between providers and consumers becomes even more crucial. The integration hub enables to connect agencies and industry partners to extend their abilities to share data.
The hub automates tasks of onboarding industry partners and allows agencies to manage them by using a shared administrative infrastructure so agencies can define: All supportive messaging transports
The integration hub provides self-service capabilities to streamline the process of managing many industry partners, as well as empower them to track and manage their transactions. Industry partners can easily:
webMethods runs in the most secure government networks and designed to scale to meet the most demanding real-time data integration requirements. The platform equips with an in-memory data store that provides the speed of execution and enhances scalability. The platform is flexible and supports deployment to on-premise data centers or any cloud provider. For example, running webMethods in Microsoft Azure Government Cloud makes it an ideal option for powering Government Integration Hub.
The Government Integration Hub Difference:
The Government Integration Hub combines the following capabilities:
The webMethods platform running in the Azure Government Cloud is an ideal option for powering the Government Integration Hub. The webMethods platform delivers its business benefits to your agency. The Azure cloud offers all the reliability, redundancy, and scalability that the solution demands.
Leveraging cloud and security best practices throughout, the multi-tiers webMethods architecture in Azure Government cloud is:
Software AG Government Solutions follows the latest on DEVSECOPS practices with complete “infrastructure-as-code” and continuous “automated provisioning” / “automated testing” / “automated vulnerability scanning.”
To run and reside in Government Cloud while connecting, so systems on-premises is most significant as almost all government and non-government entities will continue to run systems in that bi-modal fashion for years to come.
