5 Technologies to Cut Federal IT Costs

UnknownAligning business processes, tools, and technology with the business objectives of the organization can significantly reduce operating costs. The goal of integration is to reduce the number of vendors, tools, and disparate technologies in order to minimize costs. Organizations should adopt integration strategies to focus on improving the quality and timeliness of information and on providing information on demand and where it is needed. Organizations must realize that enterprise-wide integration cannot be achieved by implementing integration technology on a project-by-project basis without an overall strategy of how it all fits together. Tactical solutions can reduce integration implementation costs on a per-project basis, but the long-term cost reduction will be less significant than that from an enterprise-wide integration strategy. Business integration includes information architecture, data management and integration, application integration, database management, and all of the technologies that make those goals possible enterprise-wide. The end goal: a smoothly functioning information technology foundation for all business activities. Follow the 6 steps below to formulate an integration strategy:

  1. Create a Roadmap
  2. Define Metrics
  3. Minimize Redundancy
  4. Invest in Reuse
  5. Implement ant Integrate
  6. Make it Better
