Governments should embrace 3rd Platform

0 comments

The integration of 3rd Platform technologies are initiating a major change in the way that technology implements business modernisation.
The new IDC MarketScape, Western European Government System Integrators 2016 Vendor Assessment, exclusively examines Western European vendors that are key players in the systems integration market, including: Accenture, Atos, Capgemini, CGI, CSC, Deloitte, HP, IBM, Sopra-Steria, and Tieto.
“Western European government IT executives that need to purchase services from systems integrators shall consider smaller and shorter contracts that lower the risk of failure and lock-in. These contracts should aggregate competencies from multiple vendors to dynamically adjust the internal and external mix of capabilities that governments must acquire to source digital solutions in areas like big data and analytics, digital services and mobile computing,” according to Massimiliano Clapps, associate vice-president at IDC Government Insights EMEA.
In recent years, stringent budget cuts have challenged Western European governments’ ability to successfully implement digital transformation and have forced them to rethink the way they collaborate with technology vendors.
A sampling of takeaways the new IDC MarketScape provides includes:
* Award smaller and shorter contracts that lower the risk of failure and lock-in.
* Nurture internal competencies in enterprise architecture, business analysis, and code development to retain knowledge that is critical for business innovation.
* Aggregate competencies from multiple vendors to dynamically adjust the internal and external mix of capabilities they need to source.
