With so much technological modernization and adoption going on amongst federal agencies, integrating comprehensive DevOps programs is a logical next step for government entities, specifically so these improvements can be implemented and maintained. Not only should DevOps tools and programs be applied within these agencies, but an organization-wide culture that embraces DevOps as a route to technological success should be established.
Through embracing a DevOps-powered IT culture, federal agencies can address modernization challenges more quickly and decrease the costs of mission critical applications. Legacy IT approaches are no longer a suitable cure-all to what ails government organizations.
By putting in place a strong, agile group of DevOps leaders, federal agencies can better navigate through their respective infrastructure improvements and simultaneously optimize existing applications. But the framework for DevOps programs have to be put in place to make realize this goal, and this starts at a cultural and educational level for federal employees.
In an upcoming webinar titled, “Breaking Down the Walls in Government DevOps Initiatives,” Sarah N Fahden, Associate Chief of Verification Program at DHS – U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), Dustin Laun, Senior Advisor for Technology & Innovation at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and Christopher Steel, Chief Solutions Architect at Software AG Government Solutions will discuss the benefits and basics of implementing an effective DevOps program into a federal agency.
These industry experts will explain how to effectively ingrain and nurture a DevOps culture within your federal agency as well as cover the corresponding benefits that come with said culture. They will also discuss some tools that support this methodology for modernizing existing IT infrastructures.
The webinar will take place on September 6, 2017 at 2pm EDT and will be made available for viewing on demand afterwards. To register for the webinar, visit the event page here.
