Local governments use online portal to share digital transformation projects, lessons learned

Government Digital Transformation ExchangeAn online platform allows government IT agencies to share digital transformation projects and best practices in a standardized format, according to Government Technology.

The government Digital Transformation Exchange (DTE) was established as a partnership among the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation and a collection of state and local governments. Its goal is to foster information-sharing among agencies that is “freer than at industry institutions, less specific than vendor solutions and quicker than what [is] typically found in journals.”

From the article:

Kirk Lonbom, acting secretary for the Illinois Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT), said via email that the state’s hope is that sharing success stories between governments will “allow public-sector entities to realize digital transformation options and best practices,” and avoid “early adoption missteps” and “ensure that taxpayer dollars are used more efficiently.”

“The DTE allows for unified collaboration among government entities in a way that is not presently available. In the current environment, the public sector has limited options to find best practices such as paying consultants to provide the material and/or individually contacting governmental units to access information,” he said.
