Your new tech will give you that revolution but afterwards there is a new country to govern with new processes and skills to be developed. Poor deployment will, of course, undermine adoption but so will assuming it was successful. How are you measuring your success and are you listening to what is happening on the ground? Do you have performance information on hand, quality measures and good governance in place? Are you finding new solutions did not kill off or replace all those processes as envisaged?
