Watch Now

For decades, agencies have been looking for freedom from legacy systems. Freedom for their data, freedom for the underlying business logic, freedom for user workflows and freedom for their IT organizations to innovate without risk, without expensive rip-and-replace strategies and without modifying valuable legacy code.

Ultimately, this freedom will allow IT and business leaders to collaborate and build new approaches, which will enable agency leaders to ask bold questions like:
• What if there was one single point of contact for all social services requests?
• What if the exchange of information between agencies was automated to eliminate endless back-and-forth e-mail requests?
• What if home owners could go online to get all the information they need about everything from property taxes to parking permits?

Join Government Technology for our latest webinar, “Finding a Risk-Free Path to Modernization in Government,” on Dec. 11 at 11 a.m. Pacific/2 p.m. Eastern.
