Executive overview

A global economy. New demands from constituents for self-service government. An increase in multi-lingual populations. People living longer and extending their careers --- a "maturing" workforce that has demands for new technologies to enhance their productivity and performance.

The expectations and demands are high and financial resources may be limited for governments seeking to provide excellent services, compete with the private sector for talented workers. In the face of these challenges, organizations are continually pressed to look for innovative ways to streamline business operations while boosting effectiveness.
