Welcome to the Dating Game of Tech! We’re your host, ImageSoft. Congratulations on being selected as our lucky contestant on this special Valentine’s Day edition. Behind this wall are three technology solutions hoping to get the chance to assist you with reaching goals and exceeding expectations. Let’s play The Dating Game! 

Firstly, let’s meet our tech solutions! 

Contestant #1 is OnBase, Enterprise Content Management system to the stars. OnBase knows its way around the block, and is constantly looking for new ways to make the lives of Government personnel more convenient than ever. OnBase loves to stay organized, is a people-person, and will always help keep the conversation going. 

Contestant #2 is TrueSign, a veteran in the game with plenty to offer. TrueSign used to sit in its room and practice penmanship for hours. It’s a writer, but it prefers digital media whenever possible. Pen and paper is so old school and TrueSign is not about to be behind on the trends. 

Contestant #3 is Robotic Process Automation (RPA)who has been making quite a splash recently. RPA is a bit intimidating at first, but you’ll soon see that they are great at what they do and will do anything to lend a helping hand. RPA will always prefer to work smarter, not harder, and it’s a wiz at streamlining processes big and small. 

Now, let’s get started! 

Contestant #1, what would you say is your biggest strength? 

My biggest strength is definitely my versatility. I’ve spent a long time becoming well-rounded so that I can keep up with trends even though I’m not the new kid on the block. No matter how much you throw at me, I will be able to handle it and put it to work for you. I’m not afraid of a challenge, especially ones that involve digital communication. In fact, I pride myself in my ability to offer top-tier work in both Digital Workflows and Content Management. I’m a jack-of-all-trades ready to help you stay on task and find better ways to get things done. 

Contestant #2, same question. 

My biggest strength is my uniqueness! Am I a new concept? No – BUT – I do offer plenty of special features that help you get things done. I’m always right where you need me, just pull out your smartphone and send a message my way. Well, to be specific, send a text, email, or QR code my way! I’m happy to collect signatures for you from coworkers, people outside your company, individuals… anyone who’s busy and doesn’t like to beat around the bush because I don’t believe in wasting time.  

And finally, Contestant #3, what say you? 

I like to think that I’m the reliable option when you just need things to make sense. I totally understand that you’re busy, so I’m happy to pitch in when I can. I’ve been told once or twice that I have a good head on my shoulders and find great shortcuts for repetitive tasks you find tedious. Technology is at our disposal, so why not use it to make a reliable, simple process rather than asking you to slave away at it all day? You have more important things to worry about than following the steps of a long process, so leave that to me. and I’ll check in when I need help, or something goes wrong.   

Contestant #1, please describe your ideal match. 

In all honesty, I wouldn’t say I have a “type.” I get along swimmingly with just about anyone I meet. I’d say I’m most popular with bigger companies because I’m able to help a lot of departments at once. But as for who I help? I’d gladly work with the Justice System, the Government, Insurance companies, and more. If I had to pick, I’d request a match with someone involved in the Back Office side of things. That’s my comfort zone and I’m proud to say that I consider myself an extremely valuable asset to those teams. 

Contestant #2, how about you? 

Like Contestant #1, I don’t think I can say I have a perfect match. I’ve been able to work with people from all sorts of careers and fields, and I’ve loved every opportunity that’s come my way. Of course, some professionals have much better handwriting than others! I want to be clear that penmanship isn’t a dealbreaker for me at all, but something about a beautiful signature takes my breath away. In the spirit of the game, I suppose I should pick a type….I’m going to go with anyone involved in healthcare or confidential records. I don’t always find the next calligrapher in these fields, but I’m extremely loyal and can keep a secret. I know many of these roles require HIPAA and other compliance, and I know I’m up-to-date about those regulations and will be a great team member in keeping things secure, authorized, and certified. 

And finally, let’s hear from you, Contestant #3!  

I’m partial to people with lengthy to-do lists and not enough time to complete them. I’ve always been one to jump in and tackle some of the more tedious tasks myself. Nothing compares to matching with someone who could benefit from greater efficiency in their job. The look on their face when I tell them I was able to automate entire processes is worth its weight in gold. 

Thank you very much, contestants! The time has come to choose your perfect match. Could Contestant #1 be the tech of your dreams and help you streamline communication and workflows? Maybe you like Contestant #2 because you think signature collection and technology are a match made in heaven. Or maybe you’re leaning towards Contestant #3, a popular pick with a talent for freeing up your schedule from repetitive tasks. 

Good news! On this special Valentine’s Day episode, you don’t have to pick just one tech solution! If you like what you’ve heard, feel free to name all three as winners and get your digital transformation rolling.

Government, private sector need to work together to advance tech innovation and enhance security

With the US trying to compete with China in Government Technology, many US officials believe it’s time to stop fighting against Big Tech, and rather ask the private sector for help. With mixed reactions to the suggestions, it’s unclear how things will proceed, but it’s an interesting concept that we’re excited to see unfold.

Trends to Expect in 2022 in the Government Sector

Everyone seems to be focused on what’s trending. There are countless trends on each social media platform at any given point in time, clothing trends per season, and businesses and stocks trending up or down. However, it’s important to recognize that many of these short-lived “trends” are actually fads. A true trend is a process of development over time that impacts people or businesses in some way. By contrast, a fad is an interest that is short-lived and can change on a dime. The social media “trends” mentioned earlier are actually fads, as they change within a few days to a few weeks.

I mention fads because the word “trend” can have a negative connotation with it. Considering today’s blog is about trends we expect to see in 2022 throughout the government sector, I want to make sure it’s clear that we are discussing true trends that we expect to see grow and evolve for quite some time. The US Government doesn’t do fads, and it doesn’t create or adopt trends lightly. Based on the recent years and projected futures, these trends are solid and will most likely not fade away anytime soon.
