Federal agencies face many of the same IT growth challenges as their commercial counterparts. Demanding data growth. An increasingly multi-cloud world. Emerging Big Data/AI applications. And the need to effectively manage and protect all their digital assets—wherever they reside. But, government agencies also face other demanding and confidential digital use cases. These warrant not just access to the best fit of enterprise or midrange storage solutions for the job, but also the right care and handling of government customer needs by partners already trusted in federal IT environments.
Technology continues to improve care and health services in new and extraordinary ways. This includes advances in medicine and disease prevention as well as enhanced social services.
While many solutions for “do more with less” are focused on the IT department of government agencies, we often forget that every part of the agency is being tasked to cut costs while pushing employees to do more. Human resources (HR) departments are no different. The role of HR has changed dramatically over the last several years and HR professionals need tools in place to help them transform their culture to find, retain and develop the workforce for today and the future. This requires modernizing HR to gain the ability to engage employees across their entire lifecycle—from before they’re hired until they retire. ServiceNow has a solution. Its cloud-based Now Platform offers a single layer of engagement for HR functions and employee lifecycles. Federal healthcare agencies can create best-in-class employee experiences by providing one user interface with access to multiple systems across the organization.
The Now Platform offers an employee portal as an HR entry point.
Cybersecurity attacks continue to demand the attention and resources of the federal government. Compliance with the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation initiative has fortified agencies’ cybersecurity in recent years, making it possible for them to take the next step toward more robust cyber protection. One such step, CDM DEFEND, allows for a deeper dive into network activities than perhaps was previously possible. With CDM DEFEND awards completed, agencies can look forward to improved protections.
Implementing a “software factory” approach to DevSecOps software development can transform an organization and speed delivery of high-quality software products. A well-conceived software assembly-line enables hundreds of development teams and thousands of developers to leverage enterprise services and execute centralized builds. In addition to cutting risk and development times, the factory approach can bolster supply chain security.
