The Role of Technology Solutions

What is Technology Solutions?

Unpredictable and volatile economic environment, coupled with federal mandates for performance optimization, is forcing organizations to innovate and do more with less to stay ahead and meet critical mission objectives. The role of IT within an organization is fundamentally changing due to a perfect storm of business drivers, technological innovations and changing customer base.

Business Drivers

While the current economic downturn has caused many organizations to look for ways to optimize and cut costs, the public sector also had to pay attention to some key federal mandates such as the OMB’s 25 point memo. This memo mandated a “cloud-first” policy that directed the agencies to look for shared services and infrastructure where possible before turning to internal data centers. Technology innovations and changing citizen base are also forging new service models and are forcing the public sector to adapt.

Technology Enablers

 There were some major evolutions and changes in technological landscape over the past few years that are enabling organizations to bring new ways to deliver services to their workforce, customers and citizens. Mobile devices and cloud computing are changing the role of IT in an organization, and are creating opportunities for innovation to enable on-demand access to information assets. Solutions in the area of Big Data are enabling organizations to harness the power of diverse information assets and unlock the knowledge buried within the assets.

Changing Workforce and Citizens

The lines between professional and personal lives are blurring due to the proliferation of Social Media and today’s citizen is more social, knowledgeable, collaborative and transparent. Millenials are entering the workforce, becoming engaged citizens and are changing the expectations around the way services are delivered within and outside of an organization. Today’s workforce and citizens are technically savvy, come armed with mobile devices and are demanding a seamless, secure, context aware experience at home, at work, at play or on the road.

The ubiquitous connectivity created by the convergence of Cloud Computing, Mobile, Big Data and Social Media is fundamentally changing how technology is delivered and how information is consumed by employees, customers and citizens. We have moved to an era where everyone has an expectation of “on-demand” access to information and application assets within an organization. This expectation of ubiquitous connectivity requires a new kind of “Agile, On-Demand” organization and new kind of approach to computing, systems and information processing. However, most organizations are dealing with rigid infrastructures made up of legacy hardware, software, and siloed processes. They are experiencing applications and information complexity, driven by an explosion of information and aging assets. These infrastructures are also often built on an old model that required organizations to custom build and manage everything themselves. As a result, many organizations are spending the bulk of their budgets on operations— creating a widening gap between what the business needs and what IT can deliver. Faced with these challenges, how do you leverage technology to become an Agile, On-Demand organization?
