Cloud Migration – Advisory and Execution

Government agencies are increasingly looking to Cloud technology to solve problems and deliver benefits.

Data, Information and Analytics

Most government agencies understand the importance and potential of their data and information, but experience challenges in aligning internal business processes to new trends and directives in Open Data and Information Management.

From our experience, understanding and optimising the relationship between information architecture, enterprise architecture, the broader ICT strategy and business objectives can be particularly difficult – but is always worth it.

Strategic Reform helps agencies establish a clear line of sight between business activities and objectives to policy and best practice in this area, enabled by our in-depth understanding of contemporary government policy and guidelines.
