TYSONS CORNER, VA, April 3, 2020 — David Egts, chief technologist of the North American public sector business at Red Hat, said adopting Agile principles such as the prioritization of important goals and increased coordination between officers can help improve an agency’s Federal Information Security Modernization Act scorecard ratings, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

He wrote in a guest piece for FedScoop published March 27 instead of attempting to improve all aspects of information technology at the same time, organizations should focus on what will help their own mission goals.

Egts noted that managers and developers must engage in daily collaboration throughout an IT project. Organizations should also leverage automation in order to accelerate the development process so that more time can be allocated to value-added tasks, he added.
