How to build a future ready agency

Old approaches to agency operations no longer fit today's missions - let alone tomorrow's. To be truly successful, agencies must transform to be more efficient and adaptable to ever-changing demands.

KPMG’s Federal Advisory services help government agencies see around corners, strategically shift with change, and get ahead of the curve. We help federal agencies embrace new technology and develop agile business and transformational operating models fit for the rapidly changing world. Our solutions are aligned to the biggest challenges facing government—now and in the future. 

In 2018, KPMG convened government and industry leaders to discuss five technologies and capabilities that can drive agencies toward becoming digital-first enterprises:

 

Intelligent Automation 

Unleash the true power of your workforce

Agencies are continuously challenged by mounting budget constraints, expanding workloads, declining workforces, and increasing citizen expectations. Intelligent automation provides a powerful spectrum of technologies to enhance productivity, efficiency, and accuracy.

Whether in mission delivery, citizen engagement, or back-office functions, intelligent automation is a game-changer, freeing up the workforce from menial tasks to focus on higher-level, strategic pursuits. KPMG can help your agency harness these innovative tools to work smarter and faster—and reach its untapped potential.

 

A federal CIO and a leading RPA software provider joined KPMG’s Kirke Everson to discuss why and how government can apply automation and artificial intelligence (9:32).

Cybersecurity

Safeguard your agency… and public trust

The cyber threat has long been a concern for federal agencies, but the recent attacks at the highest levels of government makes it clear more needs to be done. Loss or exposure of crucial infrastructure can not only derail your mission, but shake the very foundation of American democracy: public trust.

At KPMG, we approach cybersecurity as a business issue, not just a technology issue. We help federal agencies operating in today’s digital and connected world apply the right tools and resources to protect, improve, detect, and respond to a myriad of ever-changing cyber threats while maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical functions.

 

A federal CISO, IT security officer and CTO accompanied KPMG’s Tony Hubbard to share cybersecurity strategies and risk managmeent approaches that can help protect your most critical data (10:21).

Blockchain

Find the missing link in government operations and services

By changing how government entities work with data, blockchain can enhance mission delivery and build the public’s trust in government. This powerful new technology gives everyone access to a single, updated, integrated, encrypted record, thereby reducing manual effort, decreasing technology infrastructure needs, saving time and reducing costs. With blockchain poised to transform how governments operate, KPMG helps agencies explore its potential to serve citizens faster, safer, cheaper—and simply better.

 

KPMG’s Ishan Kaul and two federal executives discuss how agencies are now beginning to explore blockhain’s potential to serve citizens faster, safer, cheaper—and simply better (9:04).

Data & Analytics

Spot and act on future trends

Increasing policies and regulations mean federal agencies today hold an unprecedented variety and volume of raw data. By applying smart analytics to derive meaning from it, that data becomes invaluable, holding the potential to transform just about everything the government does.

KPMG has the right combination of in-depth federal knowledge, big data transformation know-how, and advanced analytics capabilities to get value from government data stores. We help turn federal agencies into data-driven, decision-making organizations, driving smarter decision-making, improved operational efficiency, more effective risk management, and greater transparency into spending.

 

KPMG's Viral Chawda and data scientists explore how data strategies can turn federal agencies into insight-driven organizations, which creates smarter decision-making, improved operational efficiency, and more effective risk management (8:37).

Secure Government Cloud

Protect your data, propel your mission

Federal agencies need world class data protection to safeguard critical assets, meet strict compliance requirements, earn citizen trust, and fulfill vital missions. That’s why many federal agencies are turning to the cloud.

KPMG helps government agencies transition confidently to the cloud, vastly improving the security of data and systems while also increasing agility, responsiveness, reliability, efficiency and scale. We have deep experience architecting and building trusted cloud platforms, and are one of the few firms currently integrating artificial intelligence and data and analytics to further enhance the value of new cloud environments.

 

KPMG's global head of technology transformation and federal technology leaders share how they’re using emerging technologies to safeguard and enhance the value of cloud environments (8:38).
