Traditionally, Federal IT applications were managed through a set of disparate point tools, each requiring human involvement. As applications grew out of the traditional data center into private cloud – and subsequently into public and hybrid clouds – the old way of doing things could no longer scale to meet the needs of Federal agencies.

Government mandates are pushing agencies to accelerate cloud migration, causing them to improve applications to make them cloud ready, while also consolidating data centers and connecting remote workers to new cloud environments. This is leading to a massive increase in application data, which needs continuous monitoring and analysis.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are driving breakthroughs in innovation, but Federal agencies struggle to keep up with the growth of data that these technologies produce. IT leaders’ frustration with their agency’s data management strategies is driving new demands for secure and efficient data storage and management.

Across every level of government and industry, employees expect constant and reliable access to the data, applications, and tools they use to complete daily tasks. The onset of the global pandemic only accelerated this trend. Government agencies and contractors have been working to arm their employees with the tools and resources needed to remain efficient. To solve remote work challenges and maintain office productivity, agencies can implement a GPU-accelerated Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

Eighty percent of federal data today has a Geospatial Information Systems component. As the amount of data and project sizes continue to snow ball, federal teams need high-compute power at any location to process data quickly, effectively, and access that data.

[…]

Federal agencies have new opportunities to integrate emerging technology directly at the network’s edge, often in rugged environments. Accelerated processing at the edge is critical for AI-enabled applications, including disaster relief, intelligence gathering, or cyber security, where real-time insights are critical. More on building the digital future with solutions designed for unique mission requirements.

Data has become a critical advantage for information-driven agencies. By providing unprecedented access to actionable information, agencies can use data to better understand their operations, improve their services, and ultimately fulfill their mission requirements. To access this information, agencies need to be able to effectively operationalize data across their operations. This includes discovering and embedding past-, present-, and future-looking analytics into their end users’ workflow in order to move the metrics that matter.

Insider threats are not only limited to cyber attacks; malicious actions, or human errors within an organization can happen within any given industry. Organizations need agility to deal with new and unanticipated data and activities to stay ahead and respond to suspicious behavior across all their systems – during a time when best practices for insider threat mitigation are still emerging. Too often organizations notice wrongdoings long after the damage is already done.
