Raise your hand if someone in your office is still using Internet Explorer version 7. Of the $82 billion in federal IT spending planned for 2017, approximately 78 percent ($63 billion) is dedicated to maintaining legacy IT investments. It’s no surprise that IT modernization in government is incredibly challenging.
However, as technology continues to innovative and evolve at record paces, the government is putting renewed focus on IT modernization efforts. Which is good, because frankly, IT modernization for government is a must. Due to poor management of technology investments, costly IT projects that often result in failure, and the delivery of technologies that are obsolete by the time they are completed, government is in critical need of true modernization.
