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, Eraneos has been supporting public administration clients in numerous projects for decades and is actively involved in shaping digital change at all federal levels.
Smart Government

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.

Successful ICT procurement is not witchcraft

Eraneos FOCUS (2014/06)

Among other things, procurement involves a lot of money. Individual cases of corruption scandals in the media distract from the actual purpose of procurement: First, the required service or the desired system must be specified and then a partner must be found for its realisation. This is a difficult starting position considering that often only rough ideas exist regarding the object of delivery.

The current demands on IT and its CIOs are high. On the one hand, IT as a business enabler should deliver an optimal value contribution to the company's success, offer agile and flexible high-quality solutions and be customer-oriented. On the other hand, it has to operate with stagnating or declining IT budgets and increase its efficiency year after year.

Diagnosis for projects in a crisis situation


Megalink (2012/01)

When projects are in trouble, an independent consulting firm is often called in to analyse and define measures. From the experience of such mandates, an efficient procedure model has been developed with which the critical problem areas of a project can be identified. Suitable measures can then be derived from this to lead the project back onto the right path.

Project Review - Diagnosis for projects in distress

Eraneos KNOWLEDGE (2011/12)

Despite the increasing professionalisation in project management, a considerable proportion of projects are still completed with delays, cost overruns or performance deficiencies. In many projects, such deviations from the specifications are already visible at an early stage - especially if detailed planning with periodic controlling and reporting is in place. Smaller deviations can usually be tolerated without any problems and do not result in any measures being taken.

Electronic data exchange - silent driver of the E-Gov revolution

Eraneos KNOWLEDGE (2010/06)

In order to realise the potential benefits of eGovernment, it must be possible to exchange information electronically with and between the authorities. As an example, this Eraneos-FOKUS examines the electronic exchange of data in the environment of the AHV/IV implementing agencies. However, a single data exchange platform is not yet sufficient to achieve the aforementioned goals. The vision is rather to link various platforms into a comprehensive network.

Identity and Access Management

Eraneos KNOWLEDGE (2005/12)

ICT security has become a central topic for CIOs and IT managers in the last few years and has achieved visibility all the way up to company management. Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Single Sign-On (SSO) have become buzzwords for a central topic area in every security architecture. Behind IAM and SSO lie various sophisticated technology topics such as directory services, application integration or public key infrastructures (PKI). Above all, these buzzwords conceal highly demanding process- and organisation-driven projects, where the technical implementation is only the tip of the iceberg. This Eraneos FOKUS looks at this complex of topics from the perspective of authentication.

E-Government - From Information Technology to Administrative Reform

Eraneos KNOWLEDGE (2005/06)

The latest studies prove once again: Switzerland has fallen into the sidelines when it comes to e-government! Compared to European countries, the scope and the (zero) growth of online services are very poor. Shaken awake by these negative headlines, various excuses are put forward: Federal structures, data protection, lack of standards and, last but not least, economic considerations. Other countries, however, could make the same excuses - and still rank far ahead of Switzerland in the international rankings. What are the underlying causes for this lag?
