  1. 1. 1 2 3 4 5 cottsystems.com 2016 will be the year for IT infrastructure updates as local government Officeholders are pressed to deliver increased access to official records without sacrificing security. Here‘s how they plan to do it: 5 Top Tech Trends for Local Government in 2016 Trends Making Security a Priority The data breach at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) should serve as a reminder about the importance of digital record security. Officeholders are responding by prioritizing digital security. Expect external collaboration and renewed focus on database management and online security. Broadening Access Local governments will create online portals (such as Cott Systems' state ePortals) that give constituents 24/7-access to local agency indexes and records outside of physical office hours. The customer experience is front and center, and services such as eRecording and eFiling are made available online. Committing to Modernization Local government Officeholders feel the pressure to provide customers and workers with access to services and resources anytime, anywhere and on any device. To comply, Officeholders will look to modernize antiquated IT infrastructures by fast-tracking their IT roadmaps. For many, those maps will lead directly to cloud technology. Embracing Public Cloud Technology More Officeholders will embrace cloud solutions that empower them to maintain control of critical data while sharing through Cloud Technologies. This move will allow them to maximize internal resources, reduce costs and improve efficiency, while providing a level of disaster preparedness and business continuity that is difficult to duplicate on a local level. Digitizing Historical Records A renewed focus on the security of all records, from contemporary to historical, will lead many offices to revisit historical records digitization projects. In 2016, this push becomes critical to disaster preparedness, business continuity and the ability to provide 24/7-online access. Local governments will turn to external partners to digitize and protect historical records offsite for added security. 2016 is the year that local government Officeholders will institute innovations and technologies that improve the efficiency of their offices and the experience for key stakeholders. Cott Systems will be right beside them, providing added security, records protection and best-in-class Cloud Solutions.
