TYSONS CORNER, VA, March 25, 2020 — Brett McMillen, director of U.S. federal at Amazon Web Services, said during Government Matters' Tech Leadership Series: Innovation episode the company has observed agencies applying innovative approaches to analyze and provide data sets for service delivery, ExecutiveBiz reported March 17.

The show featured McMillen alongside government technology leaders who offered their insights on the potential of cloud-based technology platforms to help civilian and military organizations perform missions, AWS said in a blog post published March 16.

They highlighted the need for workforce training programs and DevSecOps-based security applications to accelerate innovation efforts.

McMillen also noted that innovation can occur if organizations establish federally compliant standard operating procedures across the enterprise.
