G-Cloud Digital: Maturity Model for Digital Government

scorecard1The core idea behind our TRANSFORM consulting program is the use of maturity models as the baseline for the engagement.

The first of these is ‘G-Cloud Digital‘.

As the name suggests this reflects a union of both Cloud Computing and also Digital Government adoption goals.

Maturity models help organizations conduct gap assessments, to understand where they are and where they want to go, and offer a repeatable set of stepping stones for how to do so.

For example as described in this article many agencies who are required to go ‘Digital by Default’ but as the survey revealed as many as 64% do not have a strategy for transitioning to the Digital age, and 82% lacking a basic CRM end-to-end customer life-cycle process.

The UK Government has also called for their own version of the adoption program for their G-Cloud store, the ‘Cloud First’ approach that encourages agencies to select the Cloud route as their first option when deploying new IT.

These aren’t separate technology domains but rather each accelerates the use of the other, and our maturity model will provide a unified framework for harnessing this effect.
