The President’s Budget Proposal for FY 2015 emphasizes a leaner, more efficient and better-educated federal workforce against the backdrop of declining IT budgets. Cuts in staffing, a growing mobile workforce and fewer technology dollars requires a new approach to business – a social approach, one that drives innovation and better outcomes.
Social business is changing the way agencies engage, harnessing the explosive growth of cloud and mobility technologies to improve efficiency and customer satisfaction. This customer-centric approach is echoed by the Digital Government Strategy. The current policy of a modern, efficient, and customer-oriented federal cloud has widespread applications, from a new level of interoperability and faster response in the defense and intelligence communities, to healthcare options that are tailored specifically for the customer using advanced analytics powered by big data.
To help public sector professionals navigate this changing landscape, this year’s IBM Federal Forum focuses on three core technology areas that will revolutionize agency business moving forward: cloud computing, mobile and digital strategy, and big data.
