Organizations within the Public Sector seek distinctive benefits from the use of IRIS Business Architect. Here are a few that can be pointed out:

  • Better decision-making ability. The use of IRIS Business Architect helps organizations within the Public Sector comprehend the complete impacts of decisions before making them, therefore reducing risk for each decision.
  • Driven and cohesive strategy. IRIS Business Architect can contribute in decoding governmental strategy and new rules and regulation into action and focus governmental investment toward initiatives that have higher returns.
  • Agility in business and information technology execution. The use of IRIS Business Architect makes it easy to have a repository of reusable business architecture content for each of your service units and defined processes that decode strategies into execution significantly speeding up an organization’s ability to recognize and implement all necessary changes.
  • Higher operational effectiveness and capacity for growth. IRIS Business Architect helps organizations within the public sector structure and rationalize business operations for efficiency and scalability.

The public sector is currently facing challenges that need to be addressed swiftly, preferably using IRIS Business Architect, to ensure optimal cohesion between the organization’s strategy, rules and regulation and its execution within each of its service units. Here are some of these major challenges:

  • Meeting government efficiency targets, often with pressure to control/reduce internal cost by using streamlined procurement and expense management practices from the private sectors and adapting it to the public sector to eliminate unnecessary bureaucracy.
  • Being more customer oriented by meeting new citizen and business demands for service improvement using new technologies while experiencing a scarcity of required skill sets.
  • Improving accessibility and quality of service delivery to citizens and companies, while insuring security.
  • Maximizing return on investment on information technology and systems expenditures
  • Responding to new regulatory/legislative requirements.
  • Implementation of new services using new technologies and a more focus customer-centric approach.
  • Need to generate more revenue or funding from non-governmental sources.
  • Implementation of eGovernment/eCommerce initiatives while insuring information security.
  • Stricter governance, accountability, transparency and risk management are more and more required by politicians and citizens. Public sector executives now have to manage their financial and operational risks much more effectively to avoid the attrition or loss of funds through error and fraud, foreign currency exposures, and rising interest rate costs.
