Cloud Migration best practices address simple through complex needs for migrating and often modernizing legacy applications to the Cloud.

Legacy Modernization

As NextGov reports in November 2017 the Senate passed the National Defense Authorization Act that contained a modified version of the Modernizing Government Technology Act.

The MGT Act creates a $500 million central modernization fund over two years through which agencies can borrow against to update aging, unsecure systems. It also creates working IT capital funds that agencies can stash savings from other modernization projects—like migrating to cloud computing—to use for future projects.

Congress passes the Modernizing Government Technology Act as part of the defense authorization bill.

“Dozens of the government’s most important IT systems are four decades old or older. Legacy systems tend to cost more to operate and are often prone to cybersecurity concerns. The MGT Act creates a $500 million central modernization fund over two years through which agencies can borrow against to update aging, unsecure systems. It also creates working IT capital funds that agencies can stash savings from other modernization projects—like migrating to cloud computing—to use for future projects.”
