David Egts, chief technologist of Red Hat‘s North American public sector business, has said that open-source procedures can help organizations meet digital transformation goals while promoting mobility and addressing a skills gap.

In a Fedscoop interview posted Monday, Egts noted that Red Hat’s Open Innovation Labs works with government customers to help them reduce workload processing time through new software development methods.

He added that organizations should build a capacity to transform internal processes, consolidate skills training in next-generation technology and rescale workforce based on an open-source approach to support the implementation of modern systems such as cloud computing platforms.

“When you think about digital transformation, it’s more than just technology. It’s people in the process, too,” he said during the interview.
