We’ve seen public servants go to heroic lengths to ensure that residents of their communities continue to receive essential services. Governments have shifted to more business-centric models and practices, trying new methods and piloting to keep up with these large-scale operational changes.
This transformation is manifesting itself in many unexpected ways. In itsTop 10 Government Technology Trends, Gartner highlights the adoption ofcomposable design principles pioneered by business. This approach enables public sector organizations “to extend the reuse of capabilities and continuously adapt to changing regulatory, legislative, and public expectations. CIOs are embracing composable government to overcome existing, siloed approaches to managing services, systems and data that limit the ability of governments to adapt to the rapidly evolving needs of the emerging digital society.”
Government agencies at all levels are prioritizing innovation and agility – and citizens are thankful for it. So, how is this new mindset changing the present and future state of service delivery and mission execution?
At the Google Cloud Government and Education Summit, November 3-4, you can hear from your peers from all corners of government as they share transformation use cases, best practices, and success stories that span several important themes.
Increasing Process Automation for Productivity: The mission has never been greater for public sector organizations, and automation is a powerful force multiplier that improves public servants’ productivity and program delivery efficiency.

The three will share how agencies can leverage process automation to optimize productivity and increase data security while maintaining work flexibility for their teams.
At the onset of the pandemic, many government agencies that traditionally relied on paper document processing struggled to automate data capture for document processing at scale. The United States Department of State looked for ways to transform their processes and accelerate the delivery of critical digital resources and benefits to their global constituents. Google Cloud DocAI applies artificial intelligence to traditionally paper-centric processes to allow agencies to make faster data decisions while maintaining the highest level of data accuracy to meet and exceed constituent expectations.

Advancing Public Health Outcomes: Public health organizations are on a quest to drive more effective programs and outcomes. AI and sentiment analysis are increasingly important, effective, and approachable tools.
Hear from Jeff Marino and JP Petrucione from the California Office of Digital Innovation and Heath Hayes from the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, as they share how sentiment analysis is a powerful tool for rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine, stemming the opioid epidemic, and much more.
Public sector organizations at every level are finding a wide range of services that benefit from AI solutions – including the translation services in Babylon’s AI-based, integrated healthcare apps. These technologies are proving vital during the COVID 19 pandemic. How can organizations take the first steps to more efficient public service applications with AI? Hear from Filipe Gracio, Customer Engineer at Google Cloud, and Natalie Godec, Staff Cloud Engineer at Babylon, as they explore practical AI use cases in today’s healthcare practices for better citizen engagement.
Supporting Return to Work and an Increasingly Remote Workforce: Public sector organizations are in overdrive supporting economic recovery initiatives as we work to emerge from the pandemic. Emerging technologies are on the front line in supporting an increasingly remote workforce.
The demand for modern and accessible tools that allow the workforce to secure new jobs and operate remotely is critical.

As public sector organizations are called on to support more geographically dispersed and remote workforces, it’s essential to implement a flexible, modern, work-from-anywhere shared services environment. Join Katie Tobin and Ken LaVolpe, Infrastructure-as-a-Service Lead at the Department of State, as they share how agencies can provide IT shared services on common platforms to connect personnel with other government agencies across the globe.
