The public sector has been thrust to the forefront of the societal and economic disruption caused by the pandemic, and technology leaders have had to accelerate digital transformation and reimagine how to enable their workforce and better serve Americans. Deloitte’s 12th Annual Tech Trends Report, released today, examines the trends and opportunities that will disrupt every industry to a varying degree in the next 12 – 18 months. The special government analysis reviews the trends through a public sector lens and provides examples of the trends in action with agencies applying them to advance their missions.
“Digital transformation projects that used to take years have been completed in a matter of months. Government tech leaders have demonstrated their own grit and resilience and that of their organizations through this disruption,” said Scott Buchholz, Emerging Technologies Research Director and Government and Public Services CTO, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “However, 2020 has clearly shown that organizations need to become nimbler in strategy and culture. Moreover, they need to be modernizing mission-critical systems while enhancing security and maintaining zero disruption operations.”
