New technologies such as drones, driverless cars, artificial intelligence, peer-to-peer platforms, social media, data privatization/dependency, computer replacement of employees and technology increasing worker mobility, could all have long-term ramifications for governments.

The profound effects these new technologies could have in the public or governmental spheres include increased or decreased revenue streams, regulation struggles and legislation hoping to curtail accidents and/or privacy invasions, to name but a few.

Another challenge in the public sector is that of decision-making without access to the sheer amount of data and understanding of it that exists in the private sector, a challenge we at FTI are expert in overcoming.
