Governments today need a modern network to keep up with digital transformation initiatives. Whether you are trying to improve citizen experience, make enhancements throughout your community, or optimize operations for your department, you need the right technology to support you on that journey.
Smart community trends and initiatives are taking governments by storm. There are a lot of benefits of becoming a smart community, as shown by the many cities around the globe already reaping the benefits.
The first essential step for transforming into a smart community is ensuring that you have a strong technology infrastructure to build upon. Your smart technology is only as effective as the network it is connected to.
Legacy technology systems not only set your community back but there can be serious implications for not having a strong connection between departments. When supported by a strong network, smart technologies are a great tool to maintain communications between different public safety departments and gain access to information through security cameras, systems, etc.
Your staff wants flexibility. They want to be able to work from anywhere and access information securely. That being said, the best way is to ensure that your existing staff is happy, increase employee satisfaction, and even attract new talent to your organization amid today’s workforce challenges.
Your journey to a smart community begins when you update your existing legacy technology to create a strong network that can support the new levels of demand that your citizens and government employees have created.
The key is to ensure a future-proof network that can adapt to innovations in technology and scale to meet changing levels of demand.
