As the government moves forward with digital transformation initiatives to deliver better outcomes for the public, OnPoint has been a partner on the journey across the federal landscape working to improve mission outcomes for people, processes, and technology. To that end the annual Digital Transformation Summit hosted by ACT-IAC, provides industry and government leaders with a forum to discuss insights and the cutting-edge best practices to facilitate the opportunity for thinking about digital transformation in a more meaningful way.
Following the discussions, OnPoint’s Strategic Partnership Coordinator, Tabish Akbar sat down with Pete Tseronis of Dots and Bridges to break down their key takeaways from the Summit. Drawing from their conversation, below is a more expansive look at OnPoint’s perspective on the who, what, why, and how of Digital Transformation.
A common question is who benefits from digital transformation? The answer is simple – Digital Transformation is for everyone. We believe that digital transformation should be understood as:
“The integration of digital technology into all parts of the business resulting in fundamental changes to how the organization is run.”
The goal of these changes must provide measurable outcomes that improve the experience and deliver value to the government workforce, the public and improve mission delivery. The following are areas where we see digital transformation being able to deliver value and improved outcomes for the government and stakeholders:
The core technologies driving digital transformation across the government are often understood as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, Big Data, and Cloud. During the Summit, Tabish was able to hear from government experts who describe the following ways that AI could be leveraged to accomplish two very different mission objectives:
The digital transformation landscape is moving at a rapid rate, so it is imperative to continue to keep pace with change by embracing advanced technologies and creating adaptive, flexible solutions. With Pete concluding that:
“it’s ok to be a late adopter, it’s ok to be a pioneer, but the train has left the station.”
