The private sector is rapidly advancing the way it does business. New tools, technologies, and processes are making it easier than ever for consumers to interact with services and employees to do their work. But those advancements are also challenging the way government operates.
In the face of rapid innovation, government is quickly realizing that it must modernize to keep pace. Citizens increasingly expect the same service from government as they see from private companies. At the same time, new technologies are outpacing the capabilities of current government tools – creating new cyber vulnerabilities, integration problems, and inefficiencies. Finally, as new technologies create new data, agencies struggle to make use of valuable information without overloading their systems and analysts.
Government must modernize its tools and operations to continue meeting its mission of serving the public. Yet resources to do that are stagnant at best, and decreasing at worst. How can agencies meet new modernization needs without the tools or people to do it?
Geographic information systems (GIS) are one tool that can help government quickly update its technologies and processes based on a location strategy to optimize processes and reducing operational costs. Esri provides a GIS platform called ArcGIS that enables agencies to place their data on smart map to help decide on the best place, best time, and best options for government operations, budgets, policy, and regulations.
The platform is an open and interoperable system that allows for sharing of data and analysis based on location and time, including easy-to-use tools for citizens and developers. It can be leveraged across infrastructure settings, including off-premise computing environments. That means it is easy to configure and integrates with commercial IT infrastructure to start immediately to solve complex national initiatives using intelligent maps.
Agencies can transform their organization using a location strategy based on GIS. Put all your agencies data on an intelligent map and really drive policy, regulations, and operations, based on a geo-driven decision. Stretch your budgets, cut time, and resources using maps that run your organization.
