Consolidating Mission-critical Systems in Today's Public Sector Environment

Government agencies are challenged to reduce the cost of government while maintaining constituent level of service. With security, privacy and performance requirements at an all-time high, complying with OMB mandates to consolidate 800 datacenters by 2017 is requiring agencies to balance risks of reduced cost and the reliability of delivering a secure and predictable solution. Traditional legacy systems supporting mission-critical applications deliver the security, predictability and reliability today and agencies are challenged to maintain the same attributes in a new consolidated model.

Constituent Servicing and Federal Agencies

With advancements in technology and service delivery, government agencies are faced with the challenge to keep pace with rising expectations from the public to deliver the same level of service received in the private sector or better. In order to deliver on this expectation, government agencies are faced with creating a cultural shift that literally shapes a new citizen engagement strategy involving technology, policy, programs, collaboration intra/inter-agency, customer friendly interaction and two-way mechanisms for feedback and best practices in service delivery. With the number of citizens who will require government service interactions growing literally every day, and those very same citizens demanding a leadership role in how they receive those services, "customer-centric government" is no longer a buzz word, but a necessity.
