IDC Government Insights: United States Government Digital Strategies

Governments require digital resilience — a new approach to creating and delivering products or services with increased agility, flexibility, and scalability. Major themes of this research program include AI and the future of intelligence, cloud platforms and ecosystems, future-of-work (FOW) technologies, digital sovereignty, and providing equity in health and human services. Agency challenges include the increasing complexity of both the technology and the mission environment, requiring CIOs and line-of-business organizations to work more closely with a broader spectrum and growing number of vendors and external providers to successfully achieve outcomes. Many governmental agencies are deploying digital technologies coupled with organizational, operational, and business model innovation to create new ways of operating and delivering services and information.
