Public Sector Innovation Requires Leveraging Managed Service Providers, Automation Platforms and Workforce 4.0

Technology is imperative but retaining and training talent will be crucial

Digital TransformationEnterprise IT has changed drastically over the years and is still constantly changing as technology is moving faster than ever. To keep up with the pace of change, the public sector must leverage innovation and modernized technologies in their digital transformation journey to become more efficient, automated, and secure – so they can ultimately support their teams, customers, and most importantly, the citizens of our nation.

The challenge that most agencies face is finding the right talent, the right partners, and the right technology to facilitate the transformation securely and in an agile way. Focusing on “people first, mission always” with emphasis on technology partnerships with industry and academia will help drive a successful digital transformation.

Managed Services and Automation Accelerates Digital Transformation

Partnering with the right Managed Service Providers (MSPs) is critical. A good MSP focuses on the people, processes and tools, and can deliver IT services in a FedRAMP authorized environment where IT tasks are completed and optimized using standardized, battle-tested, factory-like playbooks and automated workflows powered by a high-performance, intelligent service delivery platform.
1901 Group is at the epicenter of four (4) mega trends that focuses on 1. managed services, 2. migration to the cloud, 3. workforce development, and 4. geographic rotation to support digital transformation.

“1901 Group is uniquely positioned for this transformation, as we have built substantial cloud migration, modernization, security, and operations capacity all in a managed services model – which delivers real value to our customers in terms of resilience and simplification of enterprise IT,” said Sonu Singh, CEO and Founder in a press release.

Workforce of the Future 4.0 Transforms Economy

The in-demand jobs for IT and cloud computing continues to grow rapidly and both public sector and industry need to focus on how to find and grow the Workforce of the Future 4.0 to support government’s IT priorities.

The Workforce of the Future 4.0 has two ideas: look beyond the beltway and into rural areas to find fresh talent, and cross-train people to work on a broad range of IT implementation. Combining the geographic rotation and workforce developments provides a steady talent pipeline to support the transformation and can drive better economic results.

“A platform that can deliver from one to many customers is more efficient for customers, and it’s also completely feasible with today’s technology. Agencies are supported by a workforce that can plug in and cross-fertilize across those functions and can grow as the platform grows. As we add more automation in the platform, we’re freeing up more labor to do more design and engineering work,” said George Batsakis, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer of 1901 Group in an interview with WashingtonExec.

Public Sector and MSPs Collaboration Drives Innovation

The public sector must work together with MSPs who have the experience and skills to migrate to the cloud and can deliver IT services in a FedRAMP authorized environment to drive innovation for today and for the future.

“Federal agencies are excited to see real progress migrating to the cloud and modernizing their enterprise IT all while accelerating deployment, improving performance, and enhancing security,” said Brendan Walsh, SVP of Partner Relations of 1901 Group in a press release with Red Hat.


“Working in FISMA and FedRAMP environments takes specialized expertise and experience. Red Hat supports the collaboration with 1901 Group, and we believe our collective successes within the federal market demonstrate a positive example to other agencies of efficient cloud migration, improved cybersecurity, and cost-effective IT modernization,” said Tricia Fitzmaurice, Director, National Security Programs and Federal Law Enforcement, Red Hat.
