How New Technologies Will Change GovTech
March 26, 2019 – Lane Hartman
Recently the outdated technology that many of our governments run on has been grabbing headlines on Bloomberg and NPR. The GovTech Space is marked by legacy technology, on-premise servers, failed deployments, and enormous consulting contracts that hamper the efficiency of our government professionals throughout their respective government.
Luckily, necessary technological modernization is on its way. A transformation for GovTech is here as technologies designed specifically for the public sector that allow applications to update continuously, scale, integrate, react at lightning speed, have exceptional user interfaces, and are able to handle modifications, updates, and upgrades have arrived.
SaaS and The Cloud Hit the Private Sector
In the last 10 years, there have been enormous advancements in engineering languages/platforms that have proven themselves at the enterprise-level in the private sector. Companies like Salesforce, Shopify, and Marketo deliver scalable, robust software solutions that are always up-to-date and quickly deployed. These tools are available to their subscribers anywhere they have an internet connected computer with a browser.
While these technologies have previously only served the private sector, new technologies, like OpenGov, have taken lessons learned from private-sector facing enterprise SaaS and developed government-focused solutions for the public sector that will bring a host of value and efficiency to government.
