The Alliance for Digital Innovation (ADI) is an association of commercial companies helping to shape innovation in government.
Acquisition at the Speed of Technology
Technology evolves with ever increasing speed. But accessing new technologies can sometimes be difficult for government agencies.
Many IT solutions acquired by government can become obsolete quickly because they take too long to get through current procurement processes and procedures.
ADI will tackle these obstacles by helping to shape modern, effective and agile procurement policies and practices, and supporting emerging acquisition techniques that deliver innovative commercial technologies to government mission owners.
IT Workforce Development
It is often said that people are policy. This applies particularly to government. If government cannot recruit, hire and retain the specialized people essential to a modern digital government, then our de facto policy becomes technological mediocrity.
A modern digital government cannot remain behind-the-times and increasingly irrelevant to our daily lives.
At ADI, we are embracing new approaches to IT workforce development, whether through specialized training, new incentives, expedited hiring authorities or public/private partnerships.
Emerging Tech, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning
How should government approach tectonic technological shifts, such as AI and machine learning?
What new services can be derived for citizens?
How do we put guard rails in place to ensure the appropriate use of these technologies?
These are among the questions that should be answered as governments adopt emerging technologies. ADI is exploring these questions and others, and offering ideas for policies as governments consider greater adoption of these technologies.
