State & Local Government

State & Local Government

State and local agencies are seeking more effective ways to engage employees and stakeholders in delivering more innovative citizen services. They need technology to power the people.

WWT can accelerate this 21st century approach. Whether it is an improved passenger experience for transportation services, more efficient patient and eligibility experiences for health and human services, or safer first responder and citizen experiences for public safety, we modernize your IT and deliver on these digital initiatives. 

Our mission-aligned strategies focus on finding the right solutions that are cloud-ready, agile and secure to fit within fiscal and compliance constraints while providing the most effective time to value.

Advancing State & Local Government Initiatives Through Stimulus Funds

Since the onset of the pandemic in March 2020, the federal government has passed three significant pieces of legislation to help state and local agencies advance their initiatives.

Security Transformation

Security Transformation

As a consistently identified top priority by state and local IT leaders, WWT makes it a priority to fully understand the vital role security plays in the mission-critical objectives of our government partners, both from a policy and operational perspective. We provide a robust set of targeted services designed to help ensure the requisite data protection. Offerings include everything from security tools assessment and help with security architectures to assistance with identity access management, risk and compliance, and executive-level analytics, reporting and visualizations.

Digital and Business Transformation

Digital and Business Transformation

As the technical and digital maturity of the population continues to grow, the pressures and expectations for agencies to modernize are increasing at a rapid pace. WWT brings the tools and expertise to help government entities enhance the citizen and stakeholder experience for the most critical of innovative use cases including next generation workforce, Internet of Things (IoT), business analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

Multicloud Architecture

Modernized agencies require a work experience that is connected, secure, collaborative and productive. WWT helps build an always-on, highly mobile workforce by enabling modern workspaces that support sophisticated virtual meeting capabilities with enhanced secure access and agility. This can mean everything from re-architecting the engagement with a modern contact center to virtual desktop and end-user computing that resides both on-prem and in the cloud.

WWT can help consolidate your contracts and deliver everything you need in one solution to lower your total cost. We hold more than 130 procurement contract vehicles in 27 states.
