By Gov CIO Outlook | Thursday, October 10, 2019

Emerging technologies help the public sector to enhance cities by protecting data and making the information safe and secure from the cyber attacks.

FREMONT, CA: Technology helps shape the future in many ways. Along with these, the government is also changing. Governments are now trying to offer secure and safe tools to make the citizens "smart." The technologies employed by the government these days create a platform for more personalized and secure interactions and automate lower ordered tasks so the citizens can rely more on different kinds of jobs. Many of the organizations know that each technological advancement, like blockchain, digital reality, or server-less architecture, is more powerful than the previous one, but the real power emerges when they combine.

Government and the Public Services

The combination of augmented reality and virtual reality is taking the next step of innovation.  Government use cases include training for complex tasks and group collaborations. Public enterprises should know how to integrate technologies into their existing infrastructure and get advice on navigating the evolving technology and governance standards.

Macro tech at site

 Technologies such as cloud and cybersecurity have become the backbone of past innovations. These so-called innovations and advancements are critical for organizations as their controlled collision can compound the effect of purposeful, transformational change.

AI-driven organizations

To become a true AI organization, a firm needs to find the AI's stand in the mission, rethink its talent, focus on the human and machine interaction in its environment, and deploy machine learning across all the business platforms. Leading firms are utilizing AI's full potential for data-driven decision making and generating valuable insights.

NoOps in a serverless era

Cloud providers have automated traditional infrastructure and security management tasks and are enhancing the complexity and value of service capabilities. Therefore, the technical resources are interacting less with the fundamental system infrastructure. Operations talent can shift to enhance the agile team to focus on higher-order activities that more directly support the mission outcomes.

Connection of Tomorrow

The advanced network offers a connectivity that can run the development of new products and services or transform inefficient operating models. From edge computing and connected network to 5G, low earth orbit satellites, and ultra-broadband, firms across the sectors, both public and private, are looking for advanced connectivity options to design a network of tomorrow.

Intelligent Interfaces

Intelligent interfaces join the latest human-centered design with leading-edge technologies such as computer vision, conversational voice, auditory analytics, advanced augmented reality, and advanced virtual reality. Working mutually, these techniques and abilities transform the ways the users engage with machines and data.

Marketing Experience Beyond

Today's customers expect personalized, contextualized skills, and experiences. To enable these, the marketing officers are looking inward to closer partnerships with the company CIOs. The officers look forward to a new generation of marketing techniques that are enabled by the data powered emerging technologies.

DevSecOps and Cyber Imperative

Taking an advanced step towards cybersecurity, forward-thinking organizations are embedding security, privacy, policy, and controls into their evolved IT delivery models. DevSecOps transforms cyber and risks management from compliance-based activities that are undergone typically late in the development lifecycle.  DevSecOps essential framing mindsets will help shape the system to design from the ground up.

Mapping digital future

Digital transformation has become a central part of relying on business and technology strategists. All too often, companies anchor their approach on a specific technology advance. Developing a systematic approach for identifying opportunities born of the intersections of technology, science, and business is a significant first step in demystifying digital transformation, and making it concrete, achievable, and measurable.

Organizing a government around different departments will become outdated. Most of the difficult problems the government face today will be replaced with the best AI services in order to protect the public services, data, and information. The AI-enabled systems will be truly useful if the public enterprises build them only to solve problems, rather than to conform to arbitrary organizational units.

Last but not least, the government's mingling with the citizens will become infinitely more personalized and tailored. The government will understand more about citizens than at any previous point in time.
