Government (Federal) Industry
Government entities fall under varying degrees of sophistication of digital governance. The more advanced organizations seem to provide greater data access to serve the public and service members more effectively. Access to structured data offers opportunities through the implementation of end-to-end digital services that cut through agency data silos to enhance citizens’ experience. For this reason, every federal agency is making efforts to modernize it’s IT infrastructure and support systems. For instance, government departments and their workers can now be digitally connected to resources such as education programs or to local suppliers, companies, and prospective employees. Agencies should also consistently ensure that all citizens’ information and staff records are safe, organized, and accessible.

Congress passed the Federal IT Acquiring Reform Act, or FITARA, in December 2014. This law requires federal agencies to provide quarterly progress reports on the strategies of the departments to merge and optimize data centers, including the anticipated cost savings. Federal agencies receive a scorecard on their success every quarter, which determines the amount of financing they receive. Because of this, it is more critical than ever to have a clear data plan in place for agencies.

The federal government is not exempt struggling, as companies grapple with capturing and utilizing the amount of data that exists in our digital environment. Strict regulations mandate how electronic records of federal agencies must be handled. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) serves as the record keeper of the nation where, for legal or historical purposes, such records are now preserved forever and provide safe access to vital information to constituents. It is the same knowledge in decades-old, legacy applications that would have been filed away in the past. In addition, the Federal Electronic Records Modernization Initiative (FERMI) mandates that, in accordance with NARA regulations and guidelines, all federal agencies maintain their records.
