The recent GTI Federal Focus Report found digital transformation as one of the top IT trends among federal civilian agencies. The federal government is projected to spend $96 billion alone this year in IT solutions, according to Govtech Navigator. With sixteen percent of government CIOs planning to increase spending on analytics platforms, federal buying season is sure to see a boom in IT spending.
“Government CIOs have conflicting priorities — to bring transformative change to their organizations while pursuing compliance-oriented priorities,” said Rick Howard, Research Vice President at Gartner. “They will need to work constructively with other business leaders to agree how to balance risk and innovation to support digital transformation.”
With vast options for digital transformation on the market, it’s important for CIOs to fully understand the technology they may acquire and ensure compliance. SolarWinds® Orion® Platform, for example, helps agencies with networks, systems, and applications by monitoring, visualizing, and analyzing performance, both in the cloud and on-premises. This technology allows CIOs to manage all things IT, no matter where the infrastructure is, on one dashboard, making all levels visible.
SolarWinds network and system management products, built on the Orion Platform, monitor and manage organizations’ IT infrastructure, and supports global networks. The platform scales to support customer needs, including regional deployments and high availability. The operational status of all IT devices is collected and displayed in real-time. Consolidating data streams makes SolarWinds products an efficient choice for CIOs looking for end-to-end visibility.
“Digital transformation revolves around data. To be successful, public sector CIOs need to focus on expanding their data and analytics capabilities and creating a data-centric culture, by increasing the availability of open data and APIs for internal use and public consumption,” said Howard. “Building out data analytics infrastructure is fundamental to improving government program outcomes and services to citizens.”
