According to the General Accountability Office, 70% of government’s information technology budget is spent maintaining legacy systems. With the ever-growing demands for innovative and mobile technologies and rapid solutions to citizen needs, agencies are seeking ways to shave dollars and time off the application development process. Innovations in software development like agile computing, platform as a service, and the use of open source are making an impact on how government can transition from legacy-based technologies to a more nimble cloud-based infrastructure.

This briefing will discuss new approaches agencies are taking to reduce costs, streamline application development, and scale IT to keep up with continuous demand for citizen services.

  • Gunnar Hellekson, Chief Strategist, Public Sector, Red Hat
This briefing will feature:
  • Discussion of compliance requirements such as NIST’s Federal Information Security Act (FISMA).
  • Government thought leaders introducing best practices in application development in an era of cloud computing.
  • Certificates awarding up to 3 CPE’s accredited by The George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership.
  • Development of mobile enterprise strategy for your agency that spurs citizen access to information and benefits.
  • The role that software development approaches such as DevOps, agile and open source are playing in government.
