Ask any seasoned public sector leader about digital transformation and innovation, and they will likely tell you the No.1 factor for success is people, not technology.
As state and local governments face massive budget reductions due to the COVID-associated recession, they must ensure their employees can get as much value as possible out of the tools available to them and are prepared to leverage the technologies that will be a crucial part of the digital transformation to come.
The latter will be critically important as, even before the COVID-19 pandemic created an urgent need for digital transformation, state and local governments faced an IT skills gap. Last year, more than 90 percent of city and county officials said they saw a need for additional cybersecurity expertise in the next few years, and more than 80 percent said they needed more business intelligence and data analytics experts, according to the Center for Digital Government’s Digital Counties and Digital Cities surveys.
