Re-Imagining How Government Operates – Improving National Security Posture Starts with Digital Transformation
Leveraging the power of technology to drive change with investments in key critical areas will help create a more impactful and responsive government
The federal government impacts nearly every aspect of American life, contributing to the health, safety, security, and economic stability of our country and nations around the world. During the times of a crisis, like COVID-19, reliance on the federal government has only increased.
The current crisis has led to an inflection-point – a critical moment to re-imagine how our government operates to meet public needs and how to respond to security challenges to protect the nation. As a result, agency operations, service delivery, infrastructures, and procurement need to become more resilient, adaptable, and responsive.
“COVID-19 has created a new pace of change for the federal government and brings great opportunities to enhance our nation’s cyber security posture to prepare for any threats and crises in the future. This acceleration to digitalize business processes and expansion of cloud computing is a critical step to delivering better outcomes to citizen, while taking the proactive steps to secure classified data or information and building trust.” – Sonu Singh, CEO of 1901 Group
Transformation for the federal government starts with the goals of “delivering outcomes and building trust”. According to a report from ACT-IAC, the federal government must make critical investments in (5) key areas: cyber security, data, intelligent automation, workforce, and partnerships.
“Federal agencies have taken the bold steps to modernize and take advantage of next-generation technology. Many of these next-gen services are delivered in cost-effective and labor efficient “utilities” through “as a service” delivery models. These agencies using next-gen services have proven to be the most resilient during the COVID-19 pandemic and offer a framework for other agencies and industry suppliers to emulate.” – George Batsakis, EVP of 1901 Group
Working with innovative managed service providers (MSPs) and cloud service providers (CSPs) that are FedRAMP authorized can be a viable step in the digital transformation journey for those looking to improve operations, modernize systems, and integrate cyber security capabilities. MSPs and CSPs that have an IT factory in rural areas, with access to talent, will be key to providing the federal government resiliency and access to data, no matter what location.
“Since the inception of the company, 1901 Group has been dedicated to supporting government-wide transforming efforts to leverage cloud and modern technologies to improve performance and security while reducing operations costs. Our service delivery model includes an integrated suite of tools and technologies within a FedRAMP authorized security boundary that allows us to provide secure remote support to our customers, regardless of customer location or employee location.” – James Christopher, EVP Operations and Engineering at 1901 Group.
“We are proud of this significant milestone as our model of building IT factories located in areas with access to talent and affordable cost of living will continue to fuel our growth with an emphasis on technology partnerships with industry and academia to help drive a successful digital transformation for our customers – leveraging disruptive technologies to build the smart factory of the future,” said Sonu Singh, CEO of 1901 Group.
The federal government’s mission at hand is vital to our economy and national security. Digital transformation will drive resiliency, adaptability, and responsiveness for the federal government with the help of government focused and innovative MSPs and CSPs.
