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.

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.

End-User Computing (EUC) environments – including both virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solutions – are rapidly replacing physical desktops and laptops in many workplaces.
If your organization is like most enterprises, your high-performance databases are supported by traditional infrastructure. This means that discrete compute, storage, and network resources within your datacenter are carrying different parts of the overall workload to support database operations. You might think that this is beneficial load-balancing, but think again.

The same technology that’s behind ride-sharing apps is also well-suited to helping federal agencies achieve their missions. Event streaming processing (ESP) enables a range of outcomes – hailing a ride with a mobile phone, applying for government benefits with fewer hassles, connecting with colleagues on LinkedIn, apprehending a criminal suspect or providing an edge to troops in a firefight – by coordinating information from multiple data streams in real time. For some adopters of event streaming technology, the platform is a central nervous system for their data.

IT modernization advances the mission objectives of government organizations around the world. From large federal departments to local public safety bureaus, digital transformation initiatives move agencies toward more secure, agile, and cost-effective infrastructure and applications, empowering workers and citizens.
As companies make the move to the public cloud, they also discover that managing and maintaining cloud and hybrid environments efficiently and effectively adds complexity. If you’re considering the public cloud for the delivery of virtual desktops and applications, it’s vital to understand the challenges and choose the right solution to fit your business needs.
Cloud computing is making the federal government’s IT processes more efficient and more responsive to citizens. To help agencies overcome technical hurdles and procurement challenges that can slow transition to the cloud, the federal government has developed key mechanisms to smooth the journey, including the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), the Department of Defense Cloud (DoD) Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG), and the Cloud Smart strategy, among others.
