In this article you will read about,
- how Germany wants to digitalize its public administration and how the public cloud is helping,
- why the decision-maker in the public sector must observe special requirements,
- and the aspects that our current whitepaper provides a comprehensive overview of.
Germany is digitalizing its public administration. With the Online Access Act (OZG), the Federal Republic aims to ensure that citizens will be able to access more than 500 services digitally by the end of 2022. At the same time, the public sector is modernizing the processes behind its services. The Register Modernization Act, for example, is intended to standardize the data processing of all public offices and authorities. In the future, citizens will only need their tax identification number for all administrative services, instead of having to re-enter their data each time they contact public sector institutions.
To achieve this, the IT infrastructure must be adapted. Here, public cloud resources can complement the solutions of the federal and state governments' own IT service providers. And, thanks to flexible scaling options and the rapid provision of new services, can make the public administration significantly more digital. In addition, the cloud creates the right foundations for the use of innovative technologies – such as those based on artificial intelligence or machine learning.
