With more complex work and restricted budgets, government jobs have become increasingly challenging. One way to make government work easier and less costly is by taking advantage of the numerous emerging technologies, such as big data, cloud and mobile, that are being offered and developed today. Big data, cloud and mobile technologies enable users to access data and information in a readily available and user-friendly manner. So who can benefit from partaking in these emerging technology impact areas? Everyone.
Along with other efficiency-demanding technologies, Oracle’s cloud solutions are helping public agencies improve operational efficiency, share information, and integrate processes while reducing costs. According to Oracle’s white paper Modern Cloud for a Modern Government, the company has over 25 million customers that rely on Oracle Cloud each day. And this isn’t occurring just in the U.S. Major IT governments around the world, such as the U.K., Australia, South Korea, Canada, and Japan, are making the switch to centralized federal cloud systems. These systems ensure greater savings for federal governments. In the UK, the Digital by Default strategy estimates that moving services to digital channels from offline will save between £1.7 and £1.8 million a year.
Emerging technologies also benefit citizens in developing countries. In areas where homes and computers are too pricy, ownership of mobile devices is still widespread. Citizens can gain better access to services offered by agencies through digital and mobile applications. These emerging technologies enable all people to have an equal voice regardless of economic standing.
Want to learn more about how you can better use mobile, cloud and big data technologies to make your agency’s work more cost-effective and efficient? Attend the Public Sector 2.0: Emerging Technology Impact Areas Track of Oracle’s 8th Annual Federal Forum. The track focuses on the technological and business impacts of important emerging technologies including mobile, fast data, cloud, and big data. Speakers will discuss how these services and technologies can reshape citizen-centric government. This track includes three different sessions:
- Data: Big, Fast and Furious—A focus on identifying the challenges of data overload that government agencies are facing and how to find value in discrete, non-discrete and massive data sets
- To Cloud or Not to Cloud, That is the Question—A focus on the constantly changing landscape of public, private, and hybrid cloud options
- All Mobile, All the Time— A focus on agencies switching to Mobile First usage and introducing a secure, mobile application framework that applies to future and existing application environments
The 8th Annual Oracle Federal Forum is from 7:00am to 3:30pm on October 21st at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. The theme of the event is “Connected Government: Technology Making a Difference in People’s Lives,” and speakers will address how government engages with the public through modern technologies and approaches to make work move more efficiently.
Other forum topics include:
- Technology— Build connections across agencies for consistent information
- Service—Deliver the right information to customers at the right time
- Privacy—Protect government and citizen data
- Innovation—Leverage social networks, mobility for collaboration and engagement, and cloud
- Talent—Promote the development of a productive, diverse workforce
Governments are always looking to improve how they deliver services to citizens in a more efficient and cost-effective manner, and this is your chance to learn what other agencies are doing with big data and how you can use technology to help you.
