Federal government agencies are in a constant battle to keep their IT infrastructure modernized to ensure the secure, smooth flow of information.
According to the May 2021 White House Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, the government has the opportunity to make changes and investments in digital infrastructure since “incremental improvements will not give us the security we need.” The statement said that the Federal Government must “protect and secure its computer systems, whether they are cloud-based, on-premises or hybrid.”
Tony Wellen, vice president of federal at Spectrum Enterprise said that the government is making strides in prioritizing digital infrastructure and network evolution. “There should be a continuous effort to watch, manage and prepare for what’s coming next to ensure your network is as resilient as possible by moving from traditional technologies to more transformational service offerings leveraging secure cloud environments,” Wellen said. The path to modern infrastructure often includes implementing managed solutions to meet agency demands, supporting data security and enhancing always-on service with robust, reliable connectivity.
“Evolving technologies are helping government change the way it works,” said Neil Dorsey, director of federal solutions engineering at Spectrum Enterprise. “We are seeing more opportunities today with communications, in terms of upgraded networks built for data, voice and video needs.”
One of the ways to help ensure successful modernization is to work in tandem with a technology provider as the government relies more on companies for managed IT services.
“There is an aging infrastructure that can be upgraded to support current and future needs,” Dorsey said. “It is crucial to examine agency needs and goals while exploring opportunities to partner with a technology provider that understands how to turn your purpose into a plan of action. When the task at hand is improving constituent service delivery, ensuring seamless cross-collaboration between agencies or securing data and finding the right partner is imperative.”
