Federal Times: Ignore the Workforce at Your IT Modernization Peril
Posted by Greg Kushto | November 30, 2018
Federal agencies are currently faced with the daunting task of modernizing billions of dollars’ worth of outdated technology. On the path to IT modernization success, the investment in technology represents only half the battle though — agencies also need to modernize their workforce.
Modernizing the federal IT workforce and filling open IT positions appears to have reached a tipping point. Older professionals are retiring, taking their knowledge with them. Younger professionals either lean toward higher-paying, private-sector jobs, or specialize in emerging IT skills and technology. It all leads to a widening gap in IT operations across federal agencies.
Force 3’s Greg Kushto, VP of Sales Engineering, shares ways agencies can help to modernize their workforce in his latest column on Federal Times.
