Much more than technology

CS Transform's perspective on the Connected Government Framework

Microsoft's Connected Government Framework brings together a set of IT capabilities which provide an end-to-end solution to governments‘ technology needs - while also building in the interoperability and openness which is essential in a multi-vendor world.

Getting the full benefit of the technologies and solutions which are brought together in the CGF requires a comprehensive program of organizational and cultural change within the public sector, to ensure that technology is not just "bolted on" to old ways of working but delivers transformational impacts for citizens and businesses.

That is why Microsoft approached CS Transform to help develop the People and Process component of the CGF.

Having worked with 40 governments around the world to plan and deliver IT-enabled transformation, CS Transform has built a best practice model which covers all of the people and process change needed to deliver a genuinely transformational e-government strategy.

We are delighted to see that model now integrated into Microsoft‘s Connected Government Framework.

And we are delighted too to be working with Microsoft during 2011 – alongside other leading global companies and a wide range of national governments – to build our model into the new global open standard on "Transformational Government". This standard, based on our model, is being created now in a process being led by OASIS (the global not-for-profit internet standards organization), with support from the World Bank.
