It’s an exciting time to be a CIO, but also a challenging one.
As a result of emerging technology, organizations and the internal business practices which guide them are being permanently altered. As the importance of technology grows, CIOs are becoming more and more involved in critical organizational decisions.
It’s Not Just About Technology
Rather than simply overseeing databases and core systems, Government CIOs now have the added responsibility of building relationships with other government leaders and constituents. The increasing use of big data and analytics to guide decisions are huge drivers of change within the role. IT is now more than ever being developed to serve citizens and transform traditional processes. CIOs who do not adapt their personal and professional skill sets to meet today’s demands risk becoming ineffective, and therefore irrelevant.
Contending With Outside Forces
It’s important to be able to operate with speed when faced with the myriad of concerns facing governments today: population growth, the possibility of natural disasters, and providing efficient and high quality social services. Although it may seem overwhelming, governments are currently ripe with opportunity for CIOs to force the pace of innovation within their organizations and choose technologies that will streamline standard processes.
A New Vision for Cloud
Government CIOs are looking to the Cloud for the future of government information accessibility and security. Content Services Cloud platforms provide the infrastructure to access key information sources wherever they are, and key features – such as identity management – that governments need. These capabilities allow governments to provide fast and effective service to their constituents.

- You will leverage growing computational power
By continuing to invest in hard to maintain internal servers, companies are missing out on increased computational power offered by cloud providers. Instead of maintaining an outdated system, IT teams can be repurposed to enable cloud services and help your company grow by centralizing company data and allowing progress via machine learning or artificial intelligence. You employ incredibly intelligent people- why not provide these scientists with the comprehensive and efficient ECS system that they need to thrive?
- You will experience increased revenue, profit, and market capitalization
Digital solutions are developed first and foremost to save time, reduce costs, streamline complex processes, reduce error, and create agility in resources. A company that fully adopts a digital culture can expect to react quickly to changing market conditions or trends. These companies are also using data-driven processes to automatically collect, mine, and leverage data to make smarter business and research decisions.
- Your data will be more secure
Maintaining a legacy system infrastructure can not only be expensive, but risky as well. Keeping critical data on internal servers behind a corporate firewall exposes you to potential hacks and theft. Cloud systems not only offer bolstered, around-the-clock security, they also provide file encryption and obfuscation that will protect your information.

- Justify the case for digital transformation
Government agencies are under mounting pressure to perform tasks efficiently, store information securely, and satisfy their constituents. When taking into account operating budget and the outdated legacy case management systems on which these organizations are forced to rely, the challenge is readily apparent. Critical information is often spread across multiple disconnected platforms, making the case management process disorganized and inaccurate. A digitized case management system eliminates these information ‘silos’ and creates a single access point across every channel. Not only will this allow departments, agencies and caseworkers to provide better public services, but government employees will be able to pursue more productive tasks with the time previously spent scouring for information.
- Set your digital priorities and strategize
What is your organization’s overarching goal? What are your priorities? As a government entity, you’re likely focused on providing quality service to citizens and constituents. However, your digital transformation could also be a facet of a broader cost-cutting initiative. Knowing how you intend to maximize the benefits of the transformation will guide you through the process more quickly and give you the results that your organization needs. Create and manage a detailed strategy that incorporates your organization’s unique needs and goals.
- Ensure that government leaders are playing meaningful roles in your digital initiatives
Lead by example. Leaders should man the helm of any digital transformation effort. These individuals can provide both internal and external resources that will keep the process moving smoothly. In addition, demonstrating a focus on digitization affects the entire organization from the top down, creating a digital culture centered around smarter, more efficient practices.
- Select the best ECS software for your needs
With so many options to choose from, how can you tell which Case Management platform is right for you? Here are some tips to remember:
- Limit the number of systems you’ll be evaluating
- Take advantage of demos
- Involve the correct people from your organization
- Know what you need
- Stay in control

- Listen to constituent feedback and build upon your implemented software
Be sure to regularly evaluate the effectiveness of your Case Management solution and adjust or build upon your platform as the need arises. Your priorities, as well as those of your constituents, can change. A quality Case Management platform can mold to suit your current requirements. Most importantly, listen to the feedback of your constituents and end users. Their happiness with the solution will lead to yours!
