Unisys Launches Digital Government Accelerators Solution


Unisys is out with a new offering called Digital Government Accelerators, a new family of IT services and software designed to help state and local government agencies speed up their transitions toward providing digital services.

The accelerator covers core aspects of digital government, including moving data and applications to the cloud, providing a modern collaborative work environment for government employees, and improving the citizen experience for government services online and via mobile devices.

Unisys has broken the accelerator out into three areas that will compete with several other digital government solutions on the market already. The three areas are – cloud solutions, managed services and permitting, licensing and compliance.

“The first wave of digital government generated case studies on how government can cut costs and better serve citizens. The current wave must build on that knowledge by providing a secure and responsive citizen experience at the point of service, while also cutting the cost of government in line with today’s budget pressures,” said Mark Forman, global head of public sector, Unisys of the new offering. He adds that the accelerators will give CIOs the tools they need to keep costs down.

Unisys claims its cloud solution will help governments migrate from on-premise systems within 30 days using existing contracting vehicles. Unisys cloud environment is set up to secure both Azure and AWS instances and create a government appropriate hybrid cloud. The managed services offering will help with automation, migration and systems monitoring.

Permitting, licensing and compliance will be offered through the AMANDA platform from CSDC. The solution automates and integrates workflows to support reviews, exams, renewals, audits, fees, investigations, legal actions and compliance activities.
