cloud adoption egovernment services

The “new normal” today has many faces. But it sure has one common face for the public and private sector – cloud adoption in the IT infrastructure.  CIOs of enterprises and government agencies are busy with the task of making digital transformation decisions, induced by the global pandemic. In this new cloud-centric normal,  cost-optimization is the driving force behind the decisions of government CIOs.

So how should be approached cost-efficient cloud adoption? Here are our three advices.

1. Set a cloud strategy

Cloud in the public sector offers variety of benefits – flexibility, agility, scalability and cost efficiency with time. However, not following a clear cloud strategy may lead to increased costs at different stages of cloud adoption across the government departments in the future. This is not something a CIO would want. So a little effort to formulate a foundation of cloud strategy for the whole organizations is needed. Luckily we have a whole article that can shed some light on this matter.

2. Look into the IT financials

The cloud adoption plan must involve a dedicated team of functional leads within the organization. CIOs could use a great help from the financial leads to understand the associated costs for IT operations. This kind of synergy in the implementation stage will help CIOs to deliver more value to the government agency he works for.

3. Focus on AI (Artificial Intelligence)

Technologies like AI are meant to make things smarter. When looking for different cloud services providers, CIOs must definitely keep AI technologies on their checklist. For example a cloud software can bring more agility and flexibility within the operations of the National Labour Inspectorate. But if the software has leveraged on AI technologies to analyze and identify, for example, the most optimal routes for inspection, then in the long run the AI optimized inspection software will be more cost-efficient than a regular inspection management software. Simply because the AI will cut costs in travel expenses.

The traditional vs the modern is a conflict as old as the world. It has a very visible implication in the inspection driven enforcement activity of the public sector. In the regulatory environment this conflict is formulated like: digital transformation solutions vs old traditional inspection methods.

The regulatory bodies that use traditional methods for inspection are facing an expensive and clumsy process. On the other hand the nature of inspections is always to some degree risky for the success of the whole operation. This risk can increase the cost of inspection process. For example there could be a mistake in the allocation of cases, allowing wrongfully skilled inspectors send on site or some other mistake that could impact the cost.

We’ve already looked through variety of success stories of smart cities that embraced digital transformation. They are winners on the side of the modern and adopters of the optimization through disruptive tech solutions. These solution are doing their magic on different levels at the same time. We already talked about how data automation is an essential level of operation for the inspection software. In this article we will look through AI optimization as another feature that is a game changer for the inspection driven regulatory enforcement.

So, how is AI changing the game?

AI optimizes the resource utilization

Artificial Intelligence can design the most optimal ways for inspections. It can learn from the existing data and eliminate mistakes like sending wrongfully skilled inspectors on site or planning routes in nonoptimal ways. According to the user data of Canalix, the AI optimization can bring up to 40% better resource utilisation.

AI enables more efficient data flow

When the amount of data is managed intelligently, the business operations are improving. Even if there are potential issues, they can be evaded before affecting the whole outcome. The bottom line is that AI can literally shrink the costs of inspection.

AI reduces the decision-making process

The reducing of process time is like the elephant in the room when we talk about digital transformation. So it is with the AI driven inspection platforms. The intelligence of the system can take into account different factors at the same time and eliminate the unnecessary work. This improves the efficiency and at the end of the day decision are made faster. The benefit goes not only to one individual, who is directly involved in the inspection process, but to the whole inspection ecosystem.

A good business optimization tool will give you the digital infrastructure to do your job better. A great optimization platform will bring data automation and AI optimization to table. Combine it with a killer UX and you will have a disruption technology in your hands.
