S-24 SPONSORED CONTENT SERVING THE CITIZEN REINVENTING GOVERNMENT COLLABORATION Agencies are striving to provide digital services to match their peers in the private sector. S HARING DATA STORAGE and processing power across agencies was long the aim of IT managers and engineers who were behind the federal government’s first data center architectures. The Depart ment of Agriculture’s National Finance Center, which has been offering integrated shared services since 1973, was an early success. It still has more than 650,000 employees on the payroll every year. Today, such data centers are a rarity rather than a rule. Instead, agencies face challenges sharing resou rces while using antiquated, cumbersome technologies in a n environ ment where users have come to expect they will be able to easily commu nicate and access information quickly and easily with any device, anywhere and at any time. The demand for new digital experiences and for collaborating across boundaries has also become a mandate. Like their private sector peers, government agencies now ser ve a new style of citizen that has grown up digital and demands a digitized mobile first experience. To meet this high-performance wish list, outside -in thinking user experience designers in the government sector a re turning to new methods of developing digital applications, including using specialty “micro -services.” T hese are components of existing services or applications with proven value in the marketplace. Today, there are many micro-services developers ca n bring together, integrate and curate to create new integrated service experiences for the individual citizen, agency or end user. Using these services, organizations don’t have to spend millions of dollars and time and effort in rew riting applications. T hey can instead focus on assembling and orchestrating higher value-added capabilities and enabling a faster time to value. Content ma nagement platforms like Box are valuable tools for building these modern shared services architectures both as a content platform and first party application service. The recently unveiled Box for Government initiative is designed to bring together different digital product suites, helping agencies work remotely and collaboratively. The solution leverages the Box modern content platform a nd an ecosystem of pre - developed integrations, me eting government compliance requirements including FedR A MP, CJIS, and IRS1075, and ensuring security and privacy of sensitive government data. More than 6,500 government entities worldwide are using Box. The U.S. Department of Justice leverages the Box content platform to coordinate across bureaus a nd external stakeholders. The DOJ chose the platform to power the moderni zed Law Enforcement Information Shari ng Progra m, which helps DOJ employees ma nage sensitive law enforcement data, collaborating with internal and external stakeholders while ensu ring strict compliance with rules of evidence. DOJ relied on the Box ecosystem of partners and integrations to manage user identifies, authorize collaborators, secure endpoints and mobile devices, a nd create evidence reports, all leveraging the Box platform. The ability to securely share and collaborate without requiri ng risk y architecture changes, establishing infrastructure enclaves, a nd relying on insecu re com mu nication channels has become increasingly critical to agencies like DOJ. Those agencies are under pressure to operate at millennial-d riven standards. These advances re move obstacles from a generation of government workers and citizens who have grown up in the digital era, letting them collaborate in creative ways at an accelerated pace. And in the end, that may be one of the most valuable lessons millennials can leave for the next digital generation—learning to curate 21st centur y datasets.
