Worldwide, 96% of governments admit they are falling behind digital trends, leaving many agencies to play catch-up in their transformation efforts.
Government agencies face immense pressure to digitize services, fast-track emergency programs and become more accessible to their constituents — especially in times of crises. As they shift from legacy systems and analog processes, they deal with budget pressures and citizen demands, two factors that account for 75% of drivers forcing governments to digitally transform.
However, only 13% of government agencies are digitally “maturing”. The majority are either still “developing” or are in their “early” stages.
And unlike their corporate counterparts, government bodies carry the added responsibility of exercising diligence in handling taxpayer money while complying with stringent data security policies and working around legacy IT systems. They also endure stiff competition for IT talent.
At a time when the public is looking to the government for help, what can agencies do to overcome constraints and meet the demands of the digital era? How do you help your organization digitally transform?
Attracting and retaining hard-to-find IT talent is a major challenge for governments. What can you do to bridge tech talent gaps in your organization?
Adopt a modern approach to achieve the tools you need to digitally transform. Leverage low-code development to enable non-technical staff to build their own applications. In our research, we found that low-code users are more equipped to fulfill the demand for custom apps (63%) compared with those who are not using low code (41%).
Finally, implement an agile methodology where those apps are built quickly and improved constantly with user feedback.
When non-technical professionals are empowered to create and manage mission-critical government apps themselves, more apps will be deployed without taxing IT teams.
