Many municipalities struggle to keep up with the technical pace of change that their citizens now require, as well as managing their legacy IT infrastructure.

Government CIOs often have to make difficult trade-offs between offering a compelling citizen user experience and maintaining current application functionality. Local governments have been forced to hire more IT staff or outsource application development to try and overcome those obstacles.

There’s a better way to achieve a true digital transformation without costly hiring or outsourcing. Low-code application development with OutSystems can provide a successful end-to-end digital transformation.
