When new data isn’t available on a timely basis and old data lies in too many places to be used effectively, it hurts the decision making process. But governments tend to have more data in more places than anyone else, and they’re often much less further along in the digitization process, requiring countless workarounds and other, less-than-ideal solutions to make important decisions.
Furthermore, because of a lack of communication between departments, a hesitancy to share data and no real overarching solution to help make sense of it all, duplicate and bad data is bound to develop, and that’s when resources can be misapplied.
With a government IT integration platform like webMethods from Software AG Government Solutions, real-time data becomes an asset, not a burden, and good decisions borne out by the data can start to be made. By bringing together disparate sets of data and other valuable inputs, integration promotes better data flow and utilization of important information that just can’t be done manually.
