GCN: Building a Better Agency Through Software Orchestration
Posted by Greg Foster | May 22, 2018
In federal IT, there is sometimes fear that software orchestration will render the technology professional’s role obsolete. This mindset, however, is misguided. In reality, the exact opposite is true: Orchestration has the potential to not only make federal IT workers’ jobs more valuable than ever, but also more interesting and perhaps even a bit less stressful.
By creating a system that can handle the mundane, repetitive tasks of IT management, orchestration empowers skilled federal IT professionals to do higher value work: problem solving, innovation and creating efficiencies to move their agencies forward.
Full adoption of orchestration is just around the corner. Federal IT professionals and their agencies should take advantage of its benefits to creatively solve problems and increase efficiencies. For most, this will be a welcomed shift, one that promises to significantly increase the value of the IT worker and of the public service they provide.
In this article for GCN, Greg Foster, Force 3’s Next Gen Data Center and Enterprise Networks Practice Manager, details the ways software orchestration can empower federal IT professionals to do higher-value work.
