Software Development

Government agencies and departments across the United States along with neighboring regions may follow similar administrative processes. These approaches could be improved and made more efficient with the adoption of latest technology and specifically software development.  Custom applications can reduce complexity of the regulatory environment, data architecture, and increase interoperability. Authorities would require robust data management systems in order to operate efficiently, collaboratively and transparently.

First, government agencies and other authorities at both state as well as federal levels need to explore the types of software which can be developed or are readily available. 

  • Custom software is also known as proprietary software is the designing of software applications for a specific user or group of users within a department. All control over the software applications and their contents rests with the department that it was created for. Also, the department or agency will have to control its source code.
  • Commercial-Off-the-Shelf-Software (COTS)- is ready-made software that can be downloaded and used. It is best for companies who may not want to invest in the software development process or do not have time for the same. However, it is less secure and will not be customized to specific requirements.

Both are unique concepts, and a proper understanding is required before deciding what is most suitable.

Commercial Off-the-Shelf Software

Custom Software

  • Source Code will be freely available on the web and/or play stores.
  • Development and enhancements can be made by collaboration with the public.
  • No need license to use the software.
  • Highly open to bugs along with attempts of intrusion.
  • No automatic updates to latest versions.
  • Source code is hidden and only available to owner of the application.
  • Completely confidential and enhancements can only be made an entrusted software development company.
  • An authentication license is required.
  • A trusted software vendor will completely take care of its maintenance and security.
  • Continuous monitoring and upgrades by the vendor.

Having realized the differences, let us have a closer look at the need for any type of software application. Government agencies and departments at all levels could store massive amounts of data in separate databases. This could lead to the burial or in other words, unnecessary dumping of important information in the backlogs. Software development services can automate most processes and solve these issues. 


Also, as we have seen in the table- custom software development is the better choice for state departments and other government authorities. The term could be a complete standalone suite of applications that cover many services, or as an integrated solution).  But the app or applications in question must be able to integrate well with existing systems as well as other applications.
Following are the ways that custom software application development can help government agencies,

  • Preserve Workflow Compatibility - Custom software allows agencies to engineer a solution that fits their processes and requirements perfectly, preserving workflow compatibility and streamlining operations.
  • Adapting to Modern Trends- A custom software development team always are on the lookout for advanced versions along with changing trends. Moreover, changes can be customized according to an agency’s target audience and/or evolving requirements. 
  • Coordinate Data Among Other Agencies- Custom software enables key users of different departments and/or agencies to collaborate more effectively. They can easily create and supplement logbook entries, search the logbook, generate reports, and manage administrative functions. 
  • Streamline Operations- Agencies can describe their processes, the challenges faced and their requirements to developers. Hence, custom software can be developed exactly as needed by agencies, with no unnecessary elements. This can help agencies refine their processes and create improved efficiencies.

In summary, custom-built software applications can completely modernize the approach of government agencies. We know this as SGS Technologie is an experienced software development company in Florida with headquarters in Jacksonville and presences in Tallahassee, Miami, Frisco (TX), and more. 

SGS has nearly two decades of experience in developing custom software applications for multiple clients in public as well as private sectors. In addition, we have our own custom software products that can be used to automate some processes. We invite government agencies at state as well as federal levels along with other authorities for a direct engagement on how our software development services can be useful.
