Visionary Panel: Two Years of Dramatic Change: Federal Workforce and IT Modernization

The workplace of the past two years has undergone various changes from all in-person to full remote and now to a combination of hybrid, remote, and in-person environments. Through all these changes, one of the biggest assets to Federal agencies is the ability and the willingness to modernize. 

The shifts in work environment has led to more conversations about workplace culture, accessing data and information off-site, and the roles of communication across an organization. With these new ideas and thoughts come innovative tools that an agency can utilize to address their issues. But, with so many problems and so many potential solutions, how does an organization prioritize what IT modernization is needed for their workforce? 

Listen into this panel discussion as thought leaders discuss what it means to implement IT modernization to a workforce and their recommendations for success.

Visionary Panel: IT Modernization and Limited Resources: How to Overcome This Hurdle?

Upgrading systems, platforms, and software is a never ending process for organizations who want to stay ahead of the curve. Digital modernization can assist in some of the hassles of day-to-day operations but it does require some initial research and labor. The benefits of IT modernization, the streamlined processes and ease of workflows, greatly outweigh the required initiation labor. 

But, if your organization doesn’t have the resources to do a complete overhaul of all your processes, how can you benefit from digital and IT modernization? Modernization experts will address how an agency can begin to shift things towards a more modern future while sticking to their resource limits as well as share their own successes and failures in modernizing!

Visionary Panel: DevSecOps and How it Can Help Usher Your Organization into 2023

DevSecOps, an approach to culture, automation, and platform design that integrates security through the IT lifecycle, relies on IT modernization to thrive. Different modernization tools and tactics can accelerate the functions of DevOps like automating security gates can keep the DevOps workflow from slowing down. Selecting the right tools and protocols to continuously integrate security can help meet DevSecOps goals faster and more efficiently. 

Tune in to this panel to hear how IT modernization has impacted DevSecOps. In addition, listen to experts explain how an agency can utilize the full powers of DevSecOps and modernization as we enter the new year.

Visionary Panel: AI and RPA: Modernization Tools and How They Can Help

As agencies continue through their IT modernization journeys, tools like artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic process automation (RPA) are crucial. They eliminate a lot of labor stresses but they require initial training and skill development in order to implement. 

How can an organization adopt automation with limited resources? Panel experts will discuss their own journeys with automation, including the highs and lows of implementing new tools to modernize their agency.
