ManTech’s Kevin Phillips: Open, Trusted Architecture Key to Rapid Tech Insertion

Kevin Phillips

Kevin Phillips, CEO of ManTech International (Nasdaq: MANT) and a 2019 Wash100 Award winner, has said companies that develop open architectures could help government customers introduce new features into an existing platform faster, the Washington Business Journal reported Friday.

“Rapid insertion of technology is here to stay,” Phillips was quoted as saying. “Open architecture, as I see it, is the national policy because of technology competition and not just because of money.”

He urged contractors to work with the government as it moves toward adopting multitenant, multidomain systems. Vendors and agencies should also collaborate to simplify the certification process for new technology offerings and equip products with security features, according to Phillips.

“The demand for superior, trusted technology is here to stay, and you are either in or you are out,” he added.
