Innovation on the Microsoft Platform

Antares provides Microsoft solutions that are both innovative and easy to use and aim to help all levels of government:

Improving efficiency and productivity

By using modern tools and technologies, government agencies can streamline their workflows, automate repetitive tasks, and reduce the time and resources needed to complete projects. This can help them to operate more efficiently and effectively, and to better serve the needs of their constituents.

Enhancing decision-making

AI and analytics can help government agencies to make more informed decisions by providing them with insights and recommendations based on data. For example, agencies could use data to identify trends, predict outcomes, and optimize their operations.

Improving services

Government agencies can use modern technologies such as chatbots, virtual assistants, and mobile apps to improve the services they offer to the public. For example, they could use chatbots to answer common questions, or use mobile apps to allow citizens to access services on the go.

Enhanced customer experience

By using data and AI to personalise products and services, government organisations can improve the customer experience and build loyalty.

Cost savings

Implementing data and AI solutions can help government organisations reduce costs by streamlining processes and reducing the need for manual labour.

Collaboration & Communication

Employee Experience

The rise of hybrid and remote work means streamlined communication centered around a great employee experience within your organisation is more important than ever. With collaborative and often remote work being a core aspect of most staff’s daily lives, it’s vital that they are supported with the right tools to ensure they can work at their best.

Modern intranets based on SharePoint and Microsoft Viva can streamline how different department share information so that they’re more efficient and smooth flowing. Given the nature of the challenges and issues that public sectors face, it’s essential that internal communication can be conducted in a productive manner so that these matters are swiftly resolved.

At Antares, we have years of experience in deploying intranets to government agencies and ensuring the rollout meets the necessary requirements. Our #Space intranet has been designed with collaboration and people in mind to transform the way your organisation communicated and brings people to the heart of its purpose utilising Microsoft Viva.

Cloud Technologies

Improved security and privacy through Cloud Adoption

With cyberattacks on the rise, data security has grown to become a key consideration in how public sectors work with sensitive information.

Cloud based technologies allow users to securely share and access information wherever they are. Equipped with the latest security features, information in the cloud is encrypted and adheres to the relevant compliance policies so your staff can work securely at all times.

Tourism Australia improved their security posture from an Enterprise Level 3 to an Enterprise Level 5 and migrated their systems online to the cloud for their digital transformation journey.

    Also, technology can be used to gather data and conduct research which helps the public sector to make well-informed decisions.

  • What is the role of IT in the government sector?

    IT is essential in the public sector as it provides a platform for government agencies to communicate with citizens.

    Digital government solutions allow governments to improve their operations and make services more efficient. The effective use of IT solutions helps save money that can be reinvested into other areas such as education or healthcare.

  • What services does the public sector provide?

    The public sector handles a wide range of services, including education and healthcare. The public sector also provides infrastructure such as roads or buildings that are used by the general population.

    Besides, the public sector has many regulatory functions related to law enforcement and safety regulations.

  • What is digital transformation in the public sector?

    Digital transformation is a process of changing or improving the way that things are done by using more modern technology.

    This could mean delivering services online instead of offline. This makes it easy to access information. It is also much cheaper than traditional methods, such as printing paper forms.

    Also, digital transformation can help improve their processes and make them more efficient.

  • How to implement AI in the public sector?

    The public sector is an industry with various employees doing different jobs. So, it can be difficult for them to communicate.

    AI can help send tasks and reminders through the system based on what each person needs to do or when they need to do it.

    This makes communication much easier as employees don’t need to spend time sending and replying to emails. They can simply refer to the tasks in their personalised dashboard.

  • Why are databases so important in the public sector?

    A database is a collection of information that can be accessed and used by other computer programs. In essence, government agencies need to store every interaction. They achieve this by tracking phone calls, emails, meetings, etc.

    That means that having an organised system for storing this data is key. Also, businesses use databases to manage their customers and keep their records up to date.

  • How can cloud computing improve the public sector?

    Cloud computing is a model of technology in which data and programs are stored centrally on the internet instead of locally. This means that employees don’t need as much server space or processing power because everything is online.

    That also reduces costs for the public sector because they only have to pay for what they use. And there’s no need to upgrade servers when more storage or processing power is needed.
