Outdated IT infrastructure can create security vulnerabilities, drain resources, and limit innovation and efficiency. Use this checklist to develop an IT modernization strategy that prepares your agency to reduce risk and optimize performance and agility.

Key Considerations for Modernizing Your IT Environment

What are our goals and drivers for IT modernization?

Do we need to support greater mobility to increase responsiveness and productivity? How can we standardize, simplify and consolidate to stretch limited resources?

Have we identified mission-critical applications?

Do we have a clear understanding of how they interact with other apps? Can they be delivered more efficiently? What are the benefits of refactoring, rehosting, replatforming or retiring them?

Can hardware upgrades improve our agency’s IT performance?

Can faster chips or newer switches help eliminate data bottlenecks without redesigning systems? Is there a more strategic way to manage IT equipment lifecycles? 

How willing are we to expand into — or beyond — the public cloud?

Are we eager for greater scalability and flexibility but concerned about data security? Which private cloud or hybrid solutions would be easiest to start with?

Are we ready to move from a CAPEX to an OPEX model?

What challenges does our current budgeting process present? What steps can we take to adjust accounting and approval procedures to accommodate monthly subscription services billing?
