IT Modernization is a continuing, iterative process of improving enterprises’ fundamental business practices. It doesn’t happen in a vacuum. You don’t set it and forget it. Successful digital transformation encompasses reskilling and upskilling the workforce, rethinking acquisitions functions, and incorporating artificial intelligence, robotic process automation, machine learning and other emerging technologies into the enterprise. The flexibility of those technologies enables organizations to shift away from comprehensive, one-size-fits-all solutions in favor of an agile, iterative approach that develops agency-specific solutions while managing risk and controlling costs.
