Paving the Path for Government Digital Transformation via the Cloud

Historically, “government has lagged behind the private sector when it comes to innovation and deployment of new technologies aimed at streamlining business operations and delivering better customer-centric services,” said Kurt Steward, Vice President of Public Sector at Infor, an enterprise software provider and strategic technology partner for more than 90,000 organizations worldwide.

So it is more than likely that those agencies–federal, state and local–that are not embarking on a digital transformation journey will be pushed into the digital era by their customers and a younger tech-savvy workforce.

Technology is changing rapidly, and the pace of innovation is accelerating along with it. To understand how government can achieve digital transformation via IT modernization and cloud technology, GovLoop partnered with Infor for this industry perspective. In the following pages, we’ll discuss how digital transformation is changing the way government works; how this transformation can be achieved via cloud computing; and gain insights from Steward and his colleague, Wayne Bobby, Vice President, U.S. Federal at Infor.
