Leveraging 20th century technology in 21st century government
Todays governments are caught at a crossroads. On one side, governments are inhibited from performance improvements because they're unable to assess the value of investments made up to 15 years ago, which can result in inhibited integration, extensibility,and productivity, and carry higher maintenance costs. On the other side, however, the business processes and data that drive the agency’s business are embedded in these aging systems, making them important assets despite their age. Analyzing legacy assets to assess costs, skills requirements, benefits, and alternatives is the direction governments must head towards in order to modernize.
This paper takes a closer look at the road to modernization that governments have to journey down, as well as the speed bumps that they'll encounter along the way. Check it out, you'll read:
