With a federal government insisting on greater innovation within its ranks, and a Prime Minister advocating a more Agile management approach, the demands on agencies to keep pace with the fast-moving digital, start-up world have never been greater.

A number of government offices got the jump with the govCMS platform, which has made it easier than ever before to implement web content strategies on a large scale, and within an Agile, iterative framework. And they’ve been able to do it without having to rewrite their entire web strategy from the ground up.

Agencies including IP Australia, the Australian Taxation Office and the Australian Financial Security Authority have used govCMS as a conduit for expanding the horizons of their digital and web strategies. They have started from a small base, and then used the success of those projects to tackle larger developments.
