White paper by: Cloud Center of Excellence – iWorks Corporation
In today’s data-driven business environment, government organizations are trying their best to optimize the cost of managing and maintaining their infrastructure and applications. Moreover, the pandemic has accelerated this need to rapidly adopt the cloud. Cloud offers a myriad of benefits such as improved scalability and reliability for legacy applications, and improved security and durability for your critical business data. By modernizing and transitioning mission-critical applications to the cloud, federal and state agencies can provide users with safer access to digital services.
As per the International Data Corporation (IDC) research, here are key takeaways regarding federal agencies’ cloud updates:
Cloud is still a challenge for agencies. Only 28% have a cloud-first strategy when replacing existing on-premises systems, with another 25% deploying a cloud-also approach.
Legacy systems build up technical debt, making those systems fragile and expensive, constraining digital transformation, and creating an innovation impasse. Technical debt incurs real cost.
Agencies have introduced new training programs to help improve the skills of the federal acquisition workforce; they analyzed top positions or skill priorities and incorporated actions to address gaps in proficiency, deploy recruitment venues, and share best practices.
Migrating to the cloud is vital for achieving an end-to-end digital transformation, and iWorks acts as a trusted partner helping agencies achieve a simplified and cost-effective transition of legacy applications to the cloud. Our intent is to help you with the right strategy that resonates perfectly well with the needs of your aging, and varied, business workloads.
