Nowhere is scrutiny greater than for the public sector. No wonder: Anything “public” should be available to all, serve the common good, and is subject to open social judgment. Accordingly, opinions about education and public service are currently quite harsh, especially with regard to digitalization.
Particularities of digitalization in the public sector
Not only is digital transformation a controversial issue for public institutions, it is also an urgent one. However, there is a lack of suitably powerful and secure IT infrastructure.
In the public sector in particular, important EU directives such as GDPR conformity and aspects such as digital sovereignty and cybersecurity place severe restrictions on the choice of network technology providers.
Similarly, obstacles such as unclear, lengthy digitalization processes, negotiating with various demanding stakeholders, or a lack of resources can dampen the motivation to push the initiative forward.
This is where LANCOM Systems comes in as a full-service partner for the digital transformation of authorities, administrations, schools, and other public institutions. With dedicated all-round support for the entire digitalization project – from brainstorming and conceptualization, to tendering, implementation, the launch, and hassle-free operations – we help you with our networking solutions to efficiently implement your digital strategy and to comply, promptly and sustainably, with legal directives.
“As SMEs face the ever-increasing demands of the digital transformation, the trend is clearly toward increased data transmission speed, intelligent cloud utilization, and a general reduction in complexity. The inescapable need for IT security also continues to cast its shadow as a requirement SMEs need to meet. [...] This short study addresses the question of how SMEs, primarily those with 250 to 2,500 computer workstations, are currently positioned when it comes to modern operational concepts and company networks. To what extent is the cloud and as-a-service concept already being adopted by SMEs? What is driving the expansion of company networks? And what investments in networks are SMEs planning for 2024?” – techconsult study from 2024
Only a few city administrations and state governments have successfully implemented the digital transformation already. Most authorities and administrations are in the thick of it, or have only just started. A start that can only succeed with the right IT infrastructure and that gives a tailwind to digitalization. We will update you on the current progress of digital transformation in Europe and explain where the advantages lie and what you should be aware of concerning networking solutions in the public sector.
Can bureaucracy move fast? With a modern, digital administration, it certainly can. Information is found more quickly, processes are handled more efficiently and transparently, communication and working conditions are improved, and the authorities are always in a position to act. All it takes is a high-performance, fail-safe Internet connection, professional networking, and a high level of network security. Find out what constitutes digital government and how LANCOM supports you on the way there.
Especially for IT infrastructures at public institutions, where a lot of personal data is managed, there has to be a focus on digital sovereignty and data protection. High availability, integrity, cybersecurity, autonomy, and sustainability for authorities and critical infrastructures are just too important. We show you how you can independently and prudently manage your digital systems in the long term.
Schools bring two particularly valuable goods together: Children and education. An investment in modern schools is an investment in the future. Ensuring modern digital learning and access to education in times of crisis demands future-proof school Wi-Fi. LANCOM addresses the requirements for today's school networks and helps educational institutions to implement them quickly, securely, compliant with data protection, and without great expense.
