While IT transformation in government is not an entirely new effort, its significance has never been greater. Fueled by the Modernizing Government Technology Act and the President’s Management Agenda, IT modernization has reached a tipping point. Agencies are required to upgrade legacy IT systems, better protect citizen data from hackers and other threats, and modernize workforce recruitment and training.
The journey to effective IT transformation is a long and complex endeavor. A recent survey found that IT modernization is a top priority of senior government IT leaders, with over 70 percent saying that legacy systems still make up more than half their applications.
Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all model that serves as the recipe for success. Agencies should implement a strategic plan that leverages modern and emerging technologies, spanning cloud computing, Blockchain, AI and Machine Learning. Specifically, emerging technologies can offer public sector organizations clear and tangible benefits, including: better uptime, improved data security, and superior, more reliable performance.
Oracle’s complete and integrated cloud services – spanning SaaS, PaaS and IaaS – help government agencies ensure they remain compliant while simultaneously offering a straightforward path for legacy IT system transformation. This gives government technology leaders the flexibility to innovate faster, accelerate time to value, and reduce the burden on IT staff.
