Government agencies are not only required to be able to serve the public as best as possible but also to carry out budget efficiency which is deemed unnecessary. Budget efficiency, not only in the private sector but also in government, is imperative in times of pandemics and the threat of recession.

For example, government agencies need cooperation, coordination, and communication, which can be accomplished in more efficient ways. The Ministry of Finance, for example, is starting to see the use of technology as a solution to save shopping, namely by conducting virtual meetings or online meetings.

In general, the collaboration between employees and institutions can also be done in other ways. Typically, SD-WAN technology is a solutions for online collaboration support other forms of collaboration.

Government agencies no longer have to hold time-consuming and costly meetings or official trips. Government agencies can channel savings for other important posts, or other more urgent expenses.

Government agencies may have to incur quite high upfront costs. This online collaboration system also cannot be removed after it is built, because it requires periodic upgrades and license renewals. Government agencies also need to recruit professionals to manage and provide support to their users.
