U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) oversees lawful immigration to the United States and became an early cloud adopter among federal agencies. In 2014, the agency began moving some workloads out of two legacy, on-premises data centers and into the cloud with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to overcome delays in infrastructure delivery and speed application development
Federal systems integrators (FSIs) are essential to IT modernization in government, but struggle to consolidate disparate legacy data centers and clouds from multiple providers.
The Federal Data Strategy (FDS), a 10-year roadmap, is designed to help Federal agencies leverage data for strategic advantage and serve the public. Its importance is amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic as agencies confront new requirements for data analysis and sharing, and must enable access and security for a widely dispersed workforce.
The growing COVID-19 pandemic made robust virtual care a necessity for the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and its more than 87,000 active personnel. In October 2020, the USCG met this critical need, operationalizing its Coast Guard Care Anywhere telehealth initiative with the deployment of the ViiMed enterprise virtual care platform.
Pressure on Federal IT systems has never been greater than over the past year, as the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated a rapid
shift to mass telework, increased cyber threats, and challenged Federal teams to rethink traditional processes. Many agencies had strong IT transformation strategies in place –2020 provided the impetus and opportunity to shift those efforts into overdrive.
Federal technology teams are experts at monitoring their on-prem data and systems. The importance of monitoring doesn’t change when migrating to a cloud environment. In fact, not continuing your monitoring protocols can have significant impact on your budget and drive-up your cloud usage costs.
In a hybrid world, Federal IT teams need the ability to move workloads seamlessly, develop and manage applications that run anywhere, leverage emerging technologies, and ensure security across environments. However, tying together the right hardware architectures, microchip components, and container platforms to effectively achieve this can be challenging and costly.
Making real-time, data-driven decisions requires the ability to store, search across, and analyze
massive amounts of data. From identifying and addressing network security incidents to tracking
the COVID-19 pandemic to meeting changing warfighter requirements, agencies need realtime visibility into their data and network operations.
Migrating data and applications to the cloud is making information more accessible and portable, and the Army’s new Enterprise Cloud Management Office (ECMO) will build out cloud architecture over the next five years to help the Army develop stronger data inventory and software capabilities.
ThunderCat Technology and Dell Technologies help agencies evolve the remote work environment and enable a digital workplace through optimizing workloads, supporting applications and data, and managing increased networking capacity and security needs, remotely. Deliver tailored digital experiences to your workforce for increased productivity and worker-satisfaction.
More Federal agencies have implemented work-from-home policies than ever before, as the COVID-19 pandemic has completely shifted the work landscape. A small percentage of the Federal government was previously authorized to work remote before the pandemic – the transition was a large test for agency resiliency.
We rarely use pen and paper in the workplace anymore, so why are some records still done by hand? Records are essential to all aspects of government, and in the age of IT modernization, the government is working on moving to electronic records management. Several policies are in place to help agencies navigate the transition. […]
