Business Process Management

The various agencies and state governments involved in institution management all have different back-end systems, processes, and documents. The result is an environment in which all parties are divided from one another. In spite of efforts at automating work and integrating applications, government agencies often labor with islands of technology that work in isolation from one another, defeating collaboration and keeping interested parties from readily accessing the information they need and the work they’re supposed to do. Compounding this problem is the fact that so much new technology has been applied to problems without fully assessing the problems themselves. Systems are usually evaluated by the amount of time they are working and not by the results they are delivering is another cause of IT systems failing to live up to its true potential. In addition, proprietary systems installation does not allow the business process to function smoothly.

Drilling down we know that there is need to produce real time information with only the key metrics in prominence. This need has propelled Business Analytics in the forefront of providing intelligence to support missions. This is achieved by extracting data from the various databases within the government agencies. Business intelligence and Business Analytics both relies on past and predictive statistical method to predict the outcomes and efficacy of a business process.

Enterprise Content Management

Government agencies traditionally have had access to large amount of data pool. Regulations require government entities to maintain a large data of current and past governmental activity. Many of these historical data are accessed by government entities on a regular basis to create reports and statistics. Members of the public also access these data sets, as they are part of the public domain. These data sets have to be maintained and easily available as part of the open government initiative. The challenges that are faced with such large and diverse data set are cataloguing and segregation of data. Another challenge is extraction of data for reporting. Limiting access to certain sections of the data pool for specific users. To achieve this government moving forward needs a solution, which enlist a mix of cloud storage and physical database locations. The solution may seem simple but the governments are not an early adopter of new technology.
