Digital Transformation Blog Series

ATARC is excited to present our latest collaboration of “What is digital modernization?”, a blog series with former Fed, Brian Fox, and our Industry Chair, Jennifer Kenney-Smith from our Digital Transformation Working Group.  This monthly blog series will present a fresh new perspective on the opportunities that true digital modernization is offering to the Federal Government. We hope it facilitates a discussion on the need to modernize technology in government and how to best approach this transformational effort.

The Year of the Hybrid Podcast: Listen here!

Agencies are likely to see a continuation of hybrid work patterns as they define their ‘new normal’ for post-COVID operations. The number, size, location, and even function of physical offices may change as well. These trends have implications for the technology and the partnerships agencies will need to consider in structuring their post-pandemic office, workflows,and mission execution. What technologies are likely to be most important in this transition? What partnerships? What are key resources to consider —and key risks?
