Modernization in State and Local Government

For employees in state and local government, IT modernization means more efficiently performing the functions that support agency missions, such as workflows, human resources, expenses and more. State and local IT leaders will need to harness cloud and IT modernization strategies that continuously evolve, and align IT with evershifting strategies and missions.

In the following pages of this GovLoop e-book, we offer practical tips to improve modernization – particularly in the areas of human resources (HR) and financial management – from government experts who are leading successful efforts at their organizations. We focus on these two areas because back-office functions like these – which impact both citizens and internal employees – are critical to a sound government department or agency.

We also explore the context of why modernization of HR and financial management technology is critical for state and local governments, interview thought leaders who are making a difference in this field and offer tips and actionable items you can implement at your organization.
