BearingPoint supports governmental organizations that have the will to prepare for the future. We provide the necessary frameworks with which the public sector can implement future-oriented strategies.
The right IT strategy ensures the sustainability of a governmental organization’s business. We help our clients align their IT to business requirements by using good-practice frameworks and standards like CobiT, ISO20000 and ITIL.
The general conditions for governmental organizations are shifting due to the enormous tasks that go hand in hand with digitalization and changing regulations, such as the act to promote electronic government (E-Government Act). A further challenge for governmental organizations is emerging from the IT consolidation at the federal level. By leveraging our holistic approach, we can ensure the transformation of IT according to a governmental organization’s objectives and support the development of strategies as well as architectures. We support all IT sourcing decisions and increase the profitability as well as the service quality for both external and internal service providers.
We define and optimize the operational and organizational structure of our governmental clients. In order to assure transparency, we support our clients in establishing control mechanisms with clear roles and responsibilities as well as KPIs. In addition, we assess the staffing requirements of the IT organization. BearingPoint also establishes and refines IT Service Management (ITSM) processes on an ITIL basis, helps to establish ITSM tools and supports the implementation of multi-service provider management.
Not only enterprises but also governmental agencies and organizations in Germany as well as all agencies in the European Union have become highly dependent on a well-functioning IT and secure information infrastructure. Cyber risks pose an increasing threat to this infrastructure. That is why governments have made security a top priority. Governmental agencies have to protect their infrastructure not only for reasons of availability and integrity but also to ensure public trust and confidence. Responsibilty and transparency in the way they collect and use personal and private data from their citizens are of vital importance.
Guaranteeing the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information assets is one of the most challenging tasks today.

These key components are adaptable to existing challenges as well as for future trends such as blockchain, Smart City and Smart Government.
