Government and public sector

Optimizing your IT infrastructure

Why IT optimization matters for public sector

Public sector organizations have invested heavily in infrastructure, but many of those environments are now antiquated. While pressure mounts to adopt new technologies to better serve citizens, keep up with demand for accessibility and mobility, and control costs, IT departments can’t abandon their existing investments.

Red Hat can help agencies optimize current infrastructure and free teams to focus more on initiatives, not day-to-day maintenance. With hybrid cloud management using Red Hat® CloudForms, governments can simplify IT operations, regain control of resources, and migrate virtual machines (VMs) to lower-cost virtualized and cloud infrastructure.

By adopting Ansible Tower by Red Hat, agencies can bring together disparate technologies, processes, and teams to automate complex environments, paving the way for increased agility and efficiency.

Streamlining existing infrastructure empowers public sector organizations to reduce risk and ensure compliance, and achieve new levels of security and flexibility.

In this digitized age, it’s not easy to be a CIO. Nowhere is this truer than in government, where budgets are shrinking while public sector IT departments are being asked to deliver more value every year—whether by building shared services, increasing security, being prepared to react to emergency situations, or just being more responsive to constituents.
