Bringing Government IT Modernization and Innovation to the Forefront

Closing the Year–and the IT-Business Gap–with Business Processes


As 2014 draws to a close and the chaos and excitement of the holiday season permeates both our personal and work lives, we’ll be offering tips on how to better align your mission with your business processes in order to streamline complexity and help agencies maximize their IT investments. In both, the private and public sectors, organizations have to do more with less. Driving efficiency into an agency’s mission approach requires continuous improvement and realignment in the business model, operations and processes. It’s certainly not easy but focusing on analyzing processes within your enterprise applications can improve operations in dramatic and easily measured ways.

This month, we’ll be featuring content around this theme, starting with a recap of a recent conference of federal executives that focused on the themes of waste, fraud and abuse. Speakers at the event offered insights about ways the federal government is using big data and business processes to ensure all assets are being accurately accounted for, as well as how agencies are using proven solutions to root out waste, fraud and abuse.

We’ll also highlight the themes of innovation and agility and their ability to drive efficiency as showcased at the recent FedTalks event. At that event, Bryan Spivak, Chief Technology Officer at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), discussed HHS’ Ignite, an initiative to change government culture and elicit new ways of thinking—a great example of business processes in action.
