Governments across the world have high ambitions for digital transformation. As the business of government is at its very core dynamic, so should be the services which underpin them.
In the face of challenging economies, governments and public sector organisations are under increasing constituent pressure to do more with fewer resources.
Iterative, DevOps-led value chains with rapid time-to-market and short feedback cycles would allow the public sector to increase its performance many times over, focusing limited technological budgets on what is required and efficiently delivering services to engage citizens.
Governments across the world are abandoning traditional operating models in favor of their digital counterparts.
But to effectively achieve transformation, they must overcome monolithic applications, slow and isolated software development pipelines, lack of automation, legacy technology with highly complex technology stacks, lack of standardization, and information security concerns.
Digital transformation can be achieved through a DevOps model with a clear strategy combined with effective leadership, along with a supportive, agile culture to drive the adoption.
The imperative for the federal government to provide effective digital service is clear. The public expects a responsive, transparent and efficient government that mirrors their experience with private sector entities.
