Many government agencies today rely on outdated systems with limited ability to upgrade and adapt to the needs of modern government. The result is costly infrastructure, dated processes, complicated workflows, an overburdened workforce and poor service delivery for citizens. In addition, as governments deal with diverse and rapidly changing national and global events, they need to maintain continuity of operations, adapt to a remote workforce and deliver new services in times of need. To do this, government agencies of all types and sizes need access to a complete technology platform in order to deliver needed services, scale to unprecedented demands and connect to citizens on their channel of choice.
