Summary

This IDC study helps public sector CIOs and IT and program leaders understand the forces that are driving the need to become more agile. It discusses the importance of developing strong organizational competencies in application provisioning using agile methodologies, practices, and tools to help them more quickly reduce legacy systems operations and maintenance spending while investing in higher-priority applications development. It also explains how using both agile application provisioning and the tenets of agile culture and collaboration can drive accelerated and more expansive IT transformation across the organization. It assists readers in:

Better understanding the tenets of agile applications provisioning and how to build on them to create a culture of change at multiple levels within an agency.
Understanding how changing budget and environmental pressures are impacting public sector IT organizations and driving the need for more agile responses.
Explaining agile's potential to agency leaders and program executives in terms that focus on creating a parallel government applications environment that their constituencies have come to expect.

"IDC believes that public sector CIOs and their organizations have a key role to play and the potential -- using the proper set of tools and strategies -- to use and build on agile methodologies and practices to 'get over the legacy hump' and demonstrate broader value to government agencies," says Thom Rubel, adjunct analyst with IDC's Research Network. "In light of the legacy challenges that CIOs are facing, agile needs to become a core competency, not just at a team level but also at a program and enterprise-ready scale."
