IBM Cloud Pak Solutions

More and more government and education enterprises are employing cloud technologies to deliver innovation at scale and at lower cost. New services are often built natively on cloud but can also come with risk of “vendor lock-in” and escalating cost. Existing applications can be rewritten but rewriting thousands (if not tens of thousands) of applications from the ground up is both cost and time prohibitive, so taking steps to modernize existing applications can be an attractive approach with faster time to value.

Next-Generation Data Solutions

Picture a small group of warfighters going into a contested space—with the confidence of superior situational awareness. They’re using a secure wireless network to share intel with nearby soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines. Each warfighter is connected to the long-range command and control network to send and receive information. And they’re equipped for action with on-demand analytics, smart sensors, and heads-up weapons controls, enhancing their ability to successfully complete the mission against a near-peer adversary.

The Road Map to Service Continuity

Over the last few years, government agencies have embraced cloud technologies as a way to increase efficiencies and reduce overhead costs. Much of the transition was done slowly and carefully—one use case at a time—that is, until the global COVID 19 pandemic resulted in nationwide stay-at-home orders. Many agencies rose to the challenge by accelerating their digital transformations nearly overnight. Read on to uncover the road map to rapid service continuity and remote engagement.

Government Uninterrupted: 3 Guiding Principles Shaping Your Digital Future

When stay-at-home orders were announced in 2020, many agencies around the country moved rapidly to respond to constituent needs. In a matter of days, they replaced paper signatures with electronic signatures and moved to virtual work—so people could access government services without interruption. Here are some actions government agencies took and what you can do today to follow in their footsteps.

Driving Data to DoD Software Factories with Mission-ready Kafka

In the move towards agile DevSecOps, older waterfall development methodologies must be overhauled and improved. The DoD recognizes the advantage of being able to fail fast and rapidly iterate on new mission capabilities in order to best support the war fighter. This requires near-immediate access to data services for rapid app development and the ability to stream data to apps in real-time so that users can respond as events occur. Meeting this demand means having the ability to easily create, use and repackage data services across all data producers and consumers. The resulting modular approach to data improves accountability, program effectiveness, and ultimately mission success.
