TYSONS CORNER, VA, September 19, 2019 — Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) executive David Egts believes that federal agencies should keep in mind that upgrading to more modern technology requires a cultural change in how processes are carried out, ExecutiveBiz reported Aug. 28.

He wrote in a Federal News Network guest piece published Aug. 27 that change can take place at agencies if old methods are set aside in favor of new ones, such as automation and agile development, alongside the deployment of new technology.

Egts, chief technologist for Red Hat's North American public sector unit, added that by adopting agile methodology and other modern development processes, agencies can update their own systems as well as entice IT talent, who are in short supply due to the opportunities available in the commercial sector.

"Digital transformation is more than technology," Egts said. "It’s people, processes, and technology."
