BEA Breakfast – Moving Towards Shared Services in Government

Moving Towards Shared Services in Government

Gatineau, Quebec – Wednesday, September 13, 2006 
Public sector organizations are adopting Shared Services for one of two reasons: the need to either generate significant increases in service quality or dramatic cost savings — or a combination of both. In short, governments are trying to do more with less.

To achieve these goals, governments can’t afford to simply build new IT infrastructures. They have to bridge old legacy infrastructures to today’s world and beyond, and do so in a manner that makes government services better and more efficient.

Better services and cost savings are the result of Shared Services, and to implement a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) to facilitate this paradigm, public sector organizations require a new way of thinking about IT infrastructure, not only technically but organizationally.
