Agencies seeking to modernize their IT systems are looking for models that can bring on new capabilities, improve efficiencies and strengthen security. In many cases, Enterprise IT as a Service could be that model.
The concept of EITaaS is gaining ground across the government, and especially in the Defense sector. We’ve seen several early examples, and the business opportunity is promising.
This isn’t about bringing on people. It's about improving the IT user experience and an agency's effectiveness, while outsourcing the operation of commodity IT services to focus more on core competencies and the central mission.
At this Washington Technology Power Breakfast, we explored what these opportunities mean for industry, and what strategies agencies are pursuing to field new capabilities. This event featured early adopters of EITaaS and the contractors that have supported them talking about what customers want, the pain points they're trying to address, and what the competitive landscape looks like going forward.
Key takeaways included:
- How EITaaS differs from other as-a-service offerings
- What steps agencies are taking to adopt EITaaS
- Lessons learned from early adopters
- How to follow the money
