ACT-IAC: Where government and industry leaders collaborate.

IT Modernization


Many federal agencies rely on decades-old, obsolete technologies to support critical mission programs, essential functions, and daily operations.

Agencies are challenged to provide a secure environment as access becomes increasingly open and legacy systems potentially lack the flexibility to adapt to these changing needs. Modernizing legacy systems can be very challenging, risky, costly, and resource intensive; but, with the right strategic approach, the risks can be mitigated and costs lowered.

ACT-IAC is continually developing resources to assist agencies successfully plan and manage their legacy system modernization efforts.
