As we look ahead to the new fiscal year, federal agencies will be planning investments in technology and related infrastructure that meet the goals outlined in key policies and initiatives. However, limited funding often hinders their plans to completely replace legacy systems with newer applications, and large amounts of the budget go towards upkeep. In fact, many agencies allocate roughly 90 percent of their IT budgets on operation and maintenance costs to keep existing systems running, despite it being incapable of meeting the needs of our 21st-century government. We know that there is a constant revolving door of federal IT directives that agencies must meet – it is part and parcel of working in government. However, what most IT decision makers do not realize is that the most efficient way to be compliant with these requirements is to move away from investing in single applications and instead adopt subscription-based models. This minimizes their spending on legacy systems and instead embraces more modern forms of technology.
