Software Development for Government
Over the past few years, the notion that government entities are slow, bogged down, and unresponsive has quickly been replaced with a new reality. It’s a reality where agileness and modernity are now the operative words.
What caused this sudden shift? Growth and adoption of new software is certainly one relevant factor. And if you want your department or organization to continue improving, it’s imperative that you contract with the right custom software engineering company - one that can satisfy each of your civic, state, or federal requirements.
Why Government Entities Need Custom Software Development
Government entities - whether at the civic, state, or federal level - are unique in that they have to account for a myriad of factors that private businesses don’t traditionally have to face. Intensive security requirements, extensive bidding processes, and careful vetting mean only a handful of software developers are qualified. And the ones that are must be able to offer a diverse array of solutions.
State agencies and departments that benefit from custom government software include:
- Department of Administration
- Department of Health
- Department of IT
- Department of Health and Social Services
- Department of Health and Human Resources
- Department of Health Care
- Department of Transportation
- Economic Development Agencies
- Governor’s and Executive Offices
- Natural Resource and Environmental Agencies
- State Auditors, Comptrollers, and Treasurers
Many of the cookie-cutter software solutions that private companies and organizations use will not work in government settings. They must be tailored to unique and complex requirements. And if the solution can’t be customized to the degree that it’s needed, a proprietary solution must be created from scratch.
Common Types of Government Software
Every government entity has its own unique needs and applications. State and local governments often need software that’s able to perform functions like:
Collecting and sharing data with the public
Uncovering opportunities for improving operations
Planning and forecasting for budgeting purposes
Careful financial reporting
Real-time monitoring of revenue, expenses and transactions
