Keys To Digital Transformation in Government
Integration improves service delivery, reduces costs, and enables greater transparency

Not all government systems and services are created equal. Some share data and expose their services quite readily; others stand alone, seemingly aloof, incommunicado.  You don’t have to ponder that dynamic for long to realize that government systems that don’t work well together can create complications and inefficiencies that outweigh the benefits of a single application’s speed and performance.

The value of smarter public safety and security
Reducing threats, increasing efficiency, delivering prosperity

Politicians and citizens consistently rank safety and security as a high priority. Good policing, emergency services, disaster preparedness and response help communities thrive. Yet with public budgets under severe strain, funding is a challenge. New initiatives must demonstrate tangible economic benefits.

Accelerating law enforcement

To protect citizens and investigate crimes and suspects, your law enforcement organization’s agents, officers and teams need access to real-time data and onsite information that includes maps, mugshots and time series data points. And, they need to be able to exchange information and communicate with other agencies.

High-performance law enforcement
Technology-powered policing for the twenty-first century

Law enforcement is increasingly an information management business. Getting the right information into the right hands at the right time can prevent crime and save lives. To get the most out of the new tools available to fight crime, law enforcement agencies need an integrated, end-to-end technology strategy — one that delivers the capabilities they need to protect and serve the public in a cost-effective manner.

Driving Value from Body Cameras
Analytics can help law enforcement gain insights into thousands of hours of video content

The use of body cameras by public safety and law enforcement professionals is a particularly hot topic, as increasing numbers of agencies purchase equipment and set up new policies. These devices capture events from the officers’ perspective, and can record part or all of an officer’s shift, depending on the agency’s defined policy. This surge in interest, including grant funding from the United States federal government, is intended to better protect the general public and improve the safety of officers.

Rethinking the Network as a Security Sensor and Enforcer

Today’s corporate networks are more important to business objectives than ever before. Consequently, greater amounts of sensitive data traverse both wired and wireless networks. This plethora of valuable data in today's enterprise attracts an increasing number of hackers and malware applications. However, the inherent connected intelligence and distributed nature that makes the network a treasure trove for cybercriminals can also empower the network to be a proactive security tool. Through traffic visibility, and segmentation, today's enterprise network can prove itself to be a sensor and enforcer for security.

The Importance of Foundational Security in Public Sector Networks

Across organizations from all sectors, the network is becoming more integral to daily operations. This is acutely felt by public sector organizations in the United States, namely federal, state, and local governmental organizations. Public sector organizations contend with the challenge of ensuring the security of highly sensitive data on the network in the midst of uncertain budgets and, in many cases, outdated infrastructure. At the same time, many public sector organizations grapple with a complex web of compliance protocols that must be supported on the network. This Analyst Connection explores the need for network infrastructure upgrades that include "foundational security."

Smarter Care: Impact at the point of care

Health and social care systems are interdependent and each critically affects the other. Yet, a complex matrix of public and private stakeholders dedicated to the health and well-being of individuals still operates largely within silos. They provide separate types of intervention, often with competing objectives and insufficient regard for the outcomes. The world is now at the cusp of creating a type of “system of systems,” in which private and public stakeholders are coming together to coordinate resources at unprecedented levels. These stakeholders span industries, governments, cities and communities. Learn how you can improve social systems at the point of delivery in this white paper.

Co-ordinating Health and Human Services

The federal government is providing critical funding to the states to enable states and cities to improve program results for citizens. Research repeatedly confirms that the vast majority of healthcare costs are associated with a small minority of individuals with chronic conditions. For vulnerable populations, state and federal government leaders are looking beyond traditional healthcare boundaries to address the non-health conditions associated with high-need populations. They are considering social determinants such as housing, education, work and early life experience to uncover ways to improve the health of families and individuals and contain healthcare costs. Learn how a single view of the citizen can improve service delivery and outcomes when delivering social services.
