Why mastering 2-speed IT is imperative for digital government

Tensions between technology and the business of government can threaten the success of a digital agenda. This white paper shows how a ‘2-speed’ approach can balance competing demands and boost digital capability.

As government services become increasingly digitised, pressure is being put on public sector IT leaders to solve growing tensions between technological and operational needs – between supply and demand, agility and stability, short-term cost saving and long-term value.

The danger is that IT departments’ ability to deliver will become increasingly challenged. New “Digital” functionality needs to be implemented, but lead times between what users demand and what IT can deliver are lengthening. Meanwhile, IT departments struggle with accumulated operational infrastructures that aren’t flexible enough to fully support new digital ways of working.

Unless the gaps between technology and the business of government can be closed, IT will become a severe constraint on delivering the government’s agenda. New digital technologies need to be embraced without impacting the integrity of existing operational systems.

CIOs and CTOs increasingly recognise that adapting to the new realities means managing operational and digital speeds simultaneously. Adopting a ‘2-speed’ IT strategy is especially important for mature enterprises with significant technology dependence.

This white paper from Atos shows why mastering 2-speed IT is imperative for government IT leaders.

It examines how to get IT fit for purpose and provides actionable advice for establishing effective digital capability within your organisation.
