IT Best Practices for Congressional Austerity Measures

The Defense contracting industry is about meeting DOD requirements in order to protect American interests at home and abroad. Ever since 2008, deep budget cuts have required tech providers to meet government requirements with greater innovation and efficiency. CIOs and staffs must decide which technologies to invest in to meet multiple challenges. This includes mission dominance, performance, security, usability, consolidation, compliance, lifecycle and financial.

The good news is that information technologies and communication platforms are rising to the occasion. But technology is only half the answer, in order to exceed DOD requirements in the midst of Congressional Austerity measures, the Government must gain strategic analysis, prioritize risks and encourage innovation accordingly.

Industry best practices and techniques must take into consideration best business value for the needs of each client. I believe this can be achieved through strategic SETA services that place performance needs above traditional practices.
