Government 2.0 Requires New Information Technology Governance and Risk Management to Ensure Success

Government 2.0 Requires New Information Technology Governance and Risk Management to Ensure Success












Ottawa, Canada (Vocus) November 22, 2010

“Governments are faced with a ‘new normal’ of responding to increased citizen demand with reducing budgets,” according to Doug Hadden, Vice President Products at FreeBalance. FreeBalance, a global Government Resource Planning (GRP) software company, will participate in the FMI of Canada Professional Development (PD) Week. The annual conference is taking place at the Hotel Lac-Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada from November 22 to 26, 2010. The FMI conference is focused on striking the right balance of risk and control.

Doug Hadden will host an interactive session on how transparency and accountability have become strong themes in government. Titled “The Emperor Has No Clothes – Risk and Results in an Increasing Transparent and Government 2.0 World,” this session will explore how social media and open government initiatives have introduced a new risk and reward paradigm for public servant careers and for government organizations. Transparency, in itself, has become a key performance indicator. An updated methodology on calculating open government value and improving governance structures will be discussed. The session will be held from 1:30 – 2:30 pm, Wednesday November 24, 2010 in the Hotel Lac-Leamy Krieghoff Room.

“Government 2.0 supports government economic incubation and services modernization,” said Doug Hadden, Vice President of Products at FreeBalance. “Innovation is alive and well in government and will be further transformed thanks to Government 2.0. How Government 2.0 technology enables managing for results will be discussed during the session.” Many of the subjects to be discussed are being expanded on the FreeBalance Sustainability Blog — http://www.freebalance.com/blog .

The FMI of Canada 2010 PD Week will trace government efforts to counter the effects of the global recession. It features a series of workshops and information sessions that elaborate on risk and control, striking a balance and public service renewal. The annual five-day conference draws more than 2,400 public financial management professionals to the National Capital Region of Canada. Panel discussions and exhibits provide an opportunity for participants to explore a range of new ideas, products and services.

Members of the FreeBalance team will be available for the duration of the conference to discuss and demonstrate FreeBalance web-based Government Resource Planning (GRP) solutions. FreeBalance Version 7 supports the unique and evolving requirements of government, including GRP, Government Performance Management, Government 2.0, Shared Services and Service Oriented Architectures (SOA).
