Special Issues
Special Issue on Digital Transformation of the Public Sector
Submission Date: 2023-03-15

Digital transformation, increasingly recognized as central to the efforts of government leaders to meet their obligations to society, is the use of digital technologies to innovate and change how organizations create value and prepare for the future. According to Gartner, while digital optimization focuses on using data to improve current operations, digital transformation is set to change the shape of government operations through a process of destruction, reinvention and creation. Deloitte recently conducted a survey of 1,200 government officials from 70 countries and found that three-fourths of respondents said that digital technologies were disrupting government operations, and nearly all of them characterized the impact as significant. There are numerous examples of digital transformation in the public sector. For example, Rhode Island modernized its unemployment insurance (UI) contact center by migrating to the cloud to deal with a surge in calls related to claims. Within 10 days, Rhode Island went from handling 75 concurrent calls to over 2000. Similarly, Brookings recently published a series of articles on country-level AI planning and found evidence that different countries are robustly (but differently) pursuing AI at the national level. Interestingly, there is even some early-stage experimentation efforts happening with emerging digital platforms, such as the Metaverse. These efforts span all level of government from the federal to state and to local. National and international efforts on Smart Cities allow government to be hyper-responsive to activities within the city, but also create ethical and oversight issues. From body cameras and their use within law enforcement to augmented reality for recruiting and training, there are multiple innovations that impact the way citizens and organisations interact. There is also a growing interest in digital sustainability and resilience efforts in the public sector. Digital transformation in government is still in its early stages, and thus far, progress has been slow. Only a small percentage of governments believe that they have successfully executed digital transformation. Further, these efforts are being carried out at a time when many governments do not believe they fully understand the policy, management and technology strategies required to respond appropriately to digital trends.
