TYSONS CORNER, VA, June 26, 2019 — Dave Levy, vice president of Amazon Web Services' (Nasdaq: AMZN) federal government sector, believes the government's efforts to reform its procurement process will work to accelerate technology adoption and drive information technology modernization efforts at federal agencies, ExecutiveBiz reported June 14.

Levy, a two-time Wash100 awardee, told SiliconANGLE Media's theCUBE in an interview that some policies around government acquisition reform affect the deployment of technologies such as the public cloud, which could enable agencies to manage the data that they have and utilize insights to update their services in order to improve the public's digital experience.

"[Once] you have the opportunity to get your data both unstructured and structured, in a place, in a cloud, in an environment where you can start to do things with it [and] create data lakes, you can start to apply analytics to it, build machine learning models in AI," he added.
