IBM Unveils New Software Platform
The new IBM Government Industry Framework will help agencies of all sizes use new technologies to transform their existing support and delivery processes, allowing them to more efficiently deploy limited resources and respond to everything from public emergencies to the delivery of social services. The Framework is a base software platform that is enriched by the contributions of independent software developers who use it as a foundation to build unique applications that address particular issues across government.
According to the company, the framework can be deployed to better manage traffic congestion. By improving the flow of information and the processes that trigger the deployment of resources, vehicles can be re-routed as problems arise. Similarly, the advanced technology contained in the framework can improve communications and resource allocation among first-responders in emergency situations.
Framework Supports Five Key Areas in Government: The strain on government resources is broad and growing; IBM's new Government Industry Framework offers the technologies to meet these demands centered around five key areas faced by every government, added company.
Gerry Mooney, general manager for global government and education at IBM, said: “IBM has decades of experience working with various government entities worldwide and understands the need for a unified approach that helps maximize limited budgets, while meeting a demand for services that has never been greater.
“We are bringing that expertise to a single integrated platform that can now connect different agency teams for real-time views that span the entire government structure, allowing for a quicker, more targeted response as situations of all kinds emerge.”
Will this new technology deliver expected services to public?
