Defining an IT Strategy for Your Public Sector Organization

Some public sector organizations jump right into IT and transformation initiatives without first fully considering the strategic alternatives available to them. However, some best-in-class organizations are first defining a strategic roadmap before embarking on IT engagements. By taking a more deliberate and measured approach, these organizations are setting themselves up for success without taking on unnecessary costs or risks.

This 60-minute session, facilitated by January Paulk, Senior Manager of Organizational Change and Business Process Management Services at Panorama Consulting Solutions, will illustrate how public sector organizations can define the best strategic roadmap for creating public value and realizing a high return on citizenship (ROC).

Leveraging lessons from Panorama’s extensive experience with clients across the globe, this webinar will address the following topics:

  • Current cultural and socioeconomic challenges in public administration
  • Identify the best strategic options based on global and domestic trends, and more importantly, best practices among public sector peers
  • Define the benefits of the various strategic alternatives
  • How to define a roadmap for implementing the chosen strategic alternatives

What the Emergence of SaaS and Cloud ERP Technology Really Means for Your Organization . . . and Your Job

There’s no denying it: cloud technology is a game-changer in the ERP industry.

Discussion topics include:

  • Overview of both on-premise and cloud / SaaS ERP options
  • Take-down of the marketing hype around cloud and SaaS ERP options
