TYSONS CORNER, VA, June 21, 2018 — Steve Harris, senior vice president and general manager of the federal business at Dell EMC, has urged federal agencies to focus on automation, cloud modernization and simplified procurement in order to address what he calls a “technical debt,” ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.
Harris, a 2018 Wash100 awardee, wrote in an opinion piece published June 14 that automation will work to make processes more efficient and drive innovation, while strategic use of the cloud should align with an agency’s applications and workloads.
Acquisition should also prioritize “holistic” information technology investments as the federal government faces approximately $7 billion in technical debt due to the maintenance of legacy IT systems, he added.
