Powering Transformation Solutions

The effort to modernize government IT systems is an ambitious and far-reaching initiative that seeks to digitally transform agency operations. That transformation will give the government the ability to tackle the country’s most challenging problems. It has profound implications for a wide range of activities, including protecting sensitive government data from hackers, responding to disasters, managing public health emergencies, and enabling citizens to access services and benefits.

In a recent survey of FCW readers, respondents’ top priorities were modernizing cybersecurity (71%), improving data capture and analysis (66%), managing a mix of on-site and remote employees (65%), improving customer experience (63%) and expanding cloud (61%). Successfully combining those priorities requires identifying and then integrating best-of-breed solutions. 72% of respondents said their agencies rely on SIs for complex IT projects. Those large, established contractors often have decades of experience building government IT systems, and they understand how agencies work. They also understand the value of modernizing those systems to take advantage of the latest technology and keep pace with mission goals.

SIs recognize the key role they can play as a conduit for innovations developed by companies outside the government market, and they are evolving to meet the government’s need for digital transformation and building partnerships with emerging technology companies.
