Meeting Challenges Head-On: TEKenable's Digital Transformation in the Irish Public Sector

Challenges and Opportunities in the Public Sector Landscape

Fiscal Constraints

All governments are under pressure to reduce its budget deficit since the financial crisis of 2008. This has led to cuts in public spending, which has had a knock-on effect on public services.

Demographic Change

Populations are aging, which is putting pressure on public services such as healthcare and social welfare. This is likely to continue in the coming years, as the number of older people in the population is expected to grow significantly.

Technological Change

The rapid pace of technological change is creating new challenges for the public sector. For example, the rise of social media has made it easier for citizens to connect with government, but it has also created new risks, such as the spread of misinformation.

Skills Shortages

The Public sector is facing a number of skills shortages, particularly in areas such as IT and data analytics. This is making it difficult for the government to attract and retain the talent it needs to deliver high-quality public services.

Evolving Citizen Expectations

Citizens are increasingly expecting public services to be digital, efficient, and user-friendly. This is putting pressure on the government to modernise its IT systems and improve the way it delivers services.
