A skills gap exists even among younger generation IT workers. Agencies are scrambling to find personnel with expertise in cloud service management, cybersecurity, systems architecture and legacy technologies. At the same time, many workers are preparing to retire, leaving behind a wealth of knowledge, while younger IT professionals struggle to gain the knowledge they need to take their agencies into the future.
The good news is, open source technology offers an opportunity to meet today’s workforce challenges while laying a foundation for ongoing modernization and innovation.

Join us July 24 at 11:00 PT/2:00 ET as we examine how open source is helping state and local agencies bridge knowledge and skills gaps and act as a recruiting magnet for the best and brightest workers. We’ll also discuss how open source can:

● Help today’s teams capture and preserve information for current and future use
● Facilitate automation across systems and reduce vendor lock-in
● Spur innovation and encourage employee engagement
