Digital Transformation in State & Local Government – How to Transform While Facing Budget Shortfalls

Author: Event Admin

Date of Event: Wed, September 23rd 2020
Where:TIG Webinar

Time:11:00am-12:00pm PDT


Join TIG subject matter experts as they share the current and future landscape of State and Local government budgets amid the COVID pandemic.

To deliver services effectively, States and municipalities need innovative technology that can keep up with an ever-increasing population and constantly shifting demands. According to some estimates, 6.3 billion people, or nearly 70% of the world’s population, will live in cities by 2050. This population boost will trigger transformation within State and Local governments as more and more citizens demand streamlined digital services. In-person transactions, paper records, and slow service will no longer cut it.

To succeed in the future, States and municipalities must embrace virtual tools and move away from fixed infrastructures. The most successful government agencies will no longer be risk-averse and bureaucratic. They’ll instead be innovative, customer-orientated organizations driven by results. Partner with TIG to make it happen and help address these common digital challenges.

State and Local Governments Facing Digital Challenges

  • Funding cuts: Doing more with less in the midst of budget shortfalls
  • Cybersecurity: Securely transitioning to digital services
  • Adapting to new workforce models: Taking networking infrastructure beyond yesterday’s static environments.
  • Addressing retention and productivity: Boosting retention and productivity to effectively deliver city services
  • Reducing operational costs: Cutting networking and physical infrastructure costs
