A Critical Path Option for IT Modernization and Digital Transformation

As agencies work towards building a 21st century government to better support and service the American people, one optional, low risk, incremental path for IT modernization and digital transformation becomes clear.

“Migration of data is a natural first step for the migration of mission applications, the eventual modernization of IT services, and for digital transformation of the enterprise” said John Feid, Senior Business Development Executive at 1901 Group. “Agencies small and large are making progress with digital transformation; however, for those agencies seeking to either start or expedite transformation initiatives, leveraging DR/BUaaS in the cloud can jumpstart data migration efforts which is a proven step on the critical path towards adopting more of the cloud and benefiting from innovations pertinent to on-premise, cloud-native, and hybrid environments”.

“The demand for flexible DR/BU across legacy on-premises cloud architectures is the catalyst for solutioning an as-a-service offering that provides FIPS 140-2 data encryption at-rest and in-motion, combined with industry leading data compression and deduplication,” said Brendan Walsh, SVP Partner Relations at 1901 Group, in a press release. “We see that the need for DR/BU capability is only growing in importance to our enterprise customers, especially for hybrid enterprise IT environments.”

Brendan was a featured speaker on a panel entitled “Five hybrid cloud backup and disaster recovery mistakes to avoid” on Monday Dec 2, 2019 at AWS re:Invent. He discussed 1901 Group’s DR/BUaaS offering that is designed specifically for federal, state, local government and higher education markets.
