Thanks, COVID-19. Let’s wrap this up, OK?

Continued focus on how to improve services, protect the nation’s interest and its people will require a “re-thinking” of conventional wisdom and traditional policy approaches, writes the author of this opinion piece — George Batsakis, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer of 1901 Group. The assertion here is that technology offers a clear path forward to address the challenges of today, while preparing ourselves for the future.

Having spent most of his career around technology, national security and government, George understands the implications of an aging and difficult to maintain information technology infrastructure on the government’s ability to manage crisis events like COVID-19. Technology alone isn’t a panacea for times like this, but the advancement and accessibility of information technologies, data science tools, platforms, and delivery models are the penultimate enabler for effective and efficient government decision making.

“Technology and technology-enabled transformation affords the government a viable and proven path to “go back on offense” and fill the gaps identified by the COVID-19 crisis. The approach will require leadership and vision to build the momentum required for a sustained transformation of governmental business processes, bureaucracies, and cultures.”
