IT modernization was already a known need in the public sector — but a global pandemic and a surge in cyberattacks have only added to the urgency. The pressure is on to modernize quickly, cost effectively and securely — while staying resilient to disruption and responsive to citizens.
Though many of government’s cybersecurity and digitization challenges can be traced back to antiquated IT, legacy isn’t going away any time soon. In a perfect world, every outdated mainframe would be replaced with a modern cloud infrastructure. But in reality, many mission-critical applications still depend on legacy investments. To modernize successfully in these cases, agencies need a way to connect their on-premises legacy systems with newer cloud capabilities.
That requires an effective integration strategy. But traditional integrations can take months to develop and deploy — time agencies don’t have. The urgency to modernize necessitates a faster, more agile approach to integration in the form of iPaaS (integration platform as a service). IPaaS simplifies and secures integration across cloud and physical environments, so agencies can realize outcomes faster with less risk, complexity and technical debt.
For these reasons and more, a FedRAMP-authorized iPaaS gives federal agencies the means to improve their FITARA scorecard. Meanwhile, it equips state and local agencies to meet goals for cybersecurity, smart city initiatives, and improved citizen experiences.
Does your agency have an integration strategy? If so, is iPaaS part of your plan?
