80% of Government Organizations Are at an Initial or Developing Stage of Technology Adoption
These headlines come from Gartner’s research into the role of technology transformation in government organizations. The summary is clear: government departments and organizations are slow adopters of technological innovations. Specific challenges make adoption of new processes, practices, and investment difficult.
- Government departments and public sector organizations are constrained by their business model. They have no control over their ‘customer choice,’ but must serve every citizen. Financial choices are dictated by tax and budget processes.
- Transformation is inherently risky. Changes in government and the need for electoral support often militate against risky change.
- Capital investment in new initiatives and hardware is hampered by distrust of government. CIOs in government positions should be careful to manage the hype around digital transformation so the promised results are achievable.
The landscape of digital change in government and public sector organizations is full of challenges. Elected governments face increasing scrutiny and pressure at every level.
New innovations can lead to opportunities for better government services through optimization and strategic changes.
Governments Can Manage Hype to Deliver Optimized Services to Their Constituents
Under promise and over deliver. This old sales adage is relevant for government and public sector organizations attempting digital change. Constituents are expecting better performance from their governments. New opportunities for delivering these changes are coming online.
One of the biggest opportunities for cost savings and service delivery improvements is the integration of data across departments and government organizations. Integrating data can lead to big advances in citizen service delivery.
Italy’s IO app is a great example of an app developed to enhance government services and citizen engagement. After data integration, the next step for government optimization is implementing changes in service delivery through offering new solutions to citizens. App development is only one opportunity among many.
Citizens continue to be concerned about their privacy and security. New protection innovations, such as such as the moving target approach, make increased security possible. Government organizations can adopt these innovations to stay ahead of the cyber criminals.
Tech adoption has been slow in government sectors but this could change. With the right partnerships and investment, governments can lead the way towards a better community for their constituents.
