Governments strive to meet citizen expectations for convenient, digital experiences that elevate service without driving up costs. Rapid data growth combined with information spread across fragmented systems creates efficiency and productivity challenges. Plus, with technical resources in short supply, government organizations struggle to innovate with current systems and infrastructure.

Cloud for Government solutions enable a seamless shift to digital that transforms how agencies work and collaborate, resulting in more agile and resilient operations.

Key benefits

Read the overview
  • Improve citizen engagement

    Deliver more consistent and relevant citizen experiences with convenient and secure digital government services.

  • Extend employee resources

    Automate and streamline workflows and manual processes to focus resources on mission-critical projects and high-value work.

  • Increase service value

    Leverage a government cloud platform to introduce digital capabilities to popular citizen services, such as grants and permits management.

  • Boost internal and external collaboration

    Support cross-agency and cross-department information sharing with a single data source for secure access and collaboration.

  • Drive compliance and governance

    Introduce high levels of information security and data protection to reduce risk and support compliance.

Business impacts

  • Document exchanges

    Government agencies frequently exchange information with infrastructure contractors. This information is shared across disconnected systems, making it unclear who is responsible for cost overruns. Streamline document processes.

  • Grant-giving processes

    Grant-giving organizations must balance compliance requirements with performance activities. Manual reviews and rising costs make it a struggle, impacting public policy outcomes. Automate reviews with credible, consistent grant risk data.

  • IT complexity

    IT departments want to enable cloud initiatives that simplify high-impact application and renewal services. The time and costs to manage and maintain legacy systems limits their capacity. Leverage digital government solutions to reduce IT burdens.

  • Employee empowerment

    Citizen-centric workforces must feel empowered to make eligibility decisions on the spot. Data silos and disconnected systems prevent them from seeing all the information they need. Connect information from leading business applications.

  • Information security

    Field offices must compliantly manage sensitive and personal data found on disaster assistance documentation. Without oversight and review, waste and fraud can occur. Compliantly manage information throughout its lifecycle.

  • Digital service creation

    Government agencies want to meet citizen demands for new digital services and simplified sign-in options. Yet, IT resources are already stretched thin, prolonging these enhancements. Develop content-rich applications with non-IT employees.
