Your Roadmap for Navigating IT Complexity

The Biden Administration has put forth IT modernization as a central framework of its recently passed COVID-19 relief bill. And that means state and local governments are going to have resources at their disposal to make long-awaited changes. The take-away is clear: Now is the time to truly transform your legacy systems.

However, IT infrastructure complexity can make it difficult to modernize. You need a roadmap.

Join us online to learn from experts:

  • How people and processes can transform governments away from legacy systems.
  • The biggest pain points from agencies looking to take advantage of the IT modernization push from the administration.
  • How Red Hat and AWS are partnering to support agencies as they modernize.
