Smart Government

Exploit the full potential of Smart Government
To realize the full potential of smart government, digital transformation must be addressed with a holistic approach and appropriate strategies that comprehensively support change at all levels. This poses major organisational, technical and economic challenges for the Confederation, cantons and municipalities. As an independent consulting firm, AWK has been supporting public administration clients in numerous projects for decades and is actively involved in shaping digital change at all federal levels.

Politics and society are constantly demanding new and often very complex services from the public sector.

At the same time, cost pressure and requirements for reliability, security and flexibility are constantly on the rise. Smart Government enables better decisions in politics and administration, makes public services and internal processes more user-friendly and efficient, opens up innovative and collaborative solutions in public administration and promotes public participation. Realizing the potential of Smart Government, however, involves a lot of work and far-reaching changes at all federal levels.


Although modern ICT plays an important role in this context, the success of smart government initiatives and projects must also take into account organizational aspects and, above all, the people who use these technologies. Smart government requires embedding in the overall business strategy and the courage to change. All those involved must be willing to face digital change and its associated dynamics.


Today's stakeholders in public administration expect digital and location-independent offerings. This will drive the digitization of public administration even further in the future. The increasing quantity structures and requirements can only be met with better networking and process optimization within and across public administrations. To this end, existing processes, organizational structures and IT systems must be realigned. Modular, interoperable and reusable solutions are becoming increasingly important in this context.

How we can assist you:

Thanks to our many years of experience and the unique combination of different competencies, we are able to advise federal, cantonal and municipal administrations on the implementation of Smart Government from an independent and neutral perspective. We support you in the analysis of your digital maturity level, develop a digital strategy together with you, accompany you in digital transformation projects and help you to implement new business strategies and models. As a professional partner, we are also at your side for process design, process optimization, specialist applications and operating services (architecture, requirements engineering, GATT/WTO procurement, security, etc.) as well as project management.
