Today, IT modernization – the continuous updating of IT and technology infrastructure – in government is a must. It’s important to deliver the necessary levels of security, functionality and efficiency to help government employees in their roles. More importantly, modernization will help government deliver better services to the American public.
But even with all the focus on IT modernization, there still seems to be a lot of confusion as to what modernization means. What does modernization really look like? Is it the same for every agency? Is modernization even achievable with limited budgets and an uncertain future for federal government?
GovLoop’s latest In Brief helps answer those questions by:
-Defining IT Modernization;
-Discussing the IT Modernization Fund and the Data Center Consolidation Optimization Initiative (DCOI); and
-Outlining a five-step roadmap to help government employees, both IT professionals and non IT professionals alike, get a better sense of where to start on modernization projects.
