Digital Challenges and Opportunities

In the public sector, as in the private sphere,
digital information technologies are creating
challenges as well as opportunities in
complex content management.

The Challenges of a Government CMS

Do it faster

Citizens, partners and other interlocutors increasingly expect rapid responses, focused on their specific needs and delivered through the channels and devices they want to use – including mobile platforms.

Do it more efficiently

Public services have a moral obligation to make the best use of the human capital at their disposal, minimizing time and resource wastage and duplication of effort.

Cut through the noise

Speed and efficiency in the digital work environment is often compromised by the sheer quantity of badly structured and irrelevant information impacting the business processes.


Get organized

A key challenge is to make sure that the right people have the right resources at the right time - especially when teams are distributed across multiple locations.

What would the ideal content-services solution for the public sector look like?

  • Open and interoperable. It should be easy to get information in and out and exchange it with other platforms and systems. This means using standard data types (XML, JSON etc.) as well as being equipped with standard interfaces and APIs (REST etc.).

  • Collaborative. It should favor multi-editing on documents to allow uses to work in parallel. The need for manual oversight and control should be minimized through automatic checkpoints and permissions.

  •  Globally accessible. Users should be able to work from any location using a variety of mobile devices from laptop to smartphone.

What key features would it need?


To allow parallel working, content sharing and reuse

 Checks and controls

Built-in to assure document quality and security

Smart automation

To eliminate routine editing and formatting tasks

Mobile user interface

Accessible from any location using mobile devices.


A shared space to coordinate and monitor multi-team operations

Automatic multichannel publication

To a full range of traditional and digital formats, without repurposing.
