As a foundational part of the ongoing modernization of federal IT systems, agency practitioners are rewriting or replacing applications. Some missions require new functionality. Others need new, contemporary code that is easier to maintain. Many agencies want applications to work across hybrid cloud environments, and legacy applications often do not.
In this exclusive executive briefing, the following federal IT practitioners take the pulse of enterprise development efforts in the federal government:
