IT modernization is critical to the future of government. Employees and citizens want better services. Agencies need to cut costs even while they add capabilities. And outdated, legacy systems must be removed to maintain operations and security. This course explains how agencies can do just that.

In six lessons, we will define IT modernization as well as its components. Then, we’ll walk through the four necessary steps every organization must take to effectively and strategically modernize their IT infrastructure.

To offer further insight, we’ll hear from Dan Kent, Public Sector Sr. Director of Systems Engineering & Chief Technology Officer at Cisco, a leading provider of technology solutions for government.
