PODCAST: Today's tech challenges are not just a government matter
Bryan Thomas, World Wide Technology's public sector leader, shares his perspectives on supply chain and other challenges in the federal market.
Government agencies and commercial businesses are all dealing with today's technology stressors, a point World Wide Technology's public sector leader Bryan Thomas unpacks for this episode of Project 38 with Washington Technology's Ross Wilkers.
A shortlist of today's stressors on the federal technology ecosystem include not enough high-quality computer chips to go around and other supply chain shortages, which are taking place amid the digital transformation push inside government.
But as part of this Project 38 episode, Bryan Thomas tells Ross Wilkers that commercial enterprises are going through much of the same dynamics as government agencies.
The main difference is found in the tools and methods businesses have to navigate those challenges, which Thomas points to as a matter mostly of policy and buying practices within government.
He also triangulates how technology, talent and investments relate to one another with the goal of both bringing government IT systems into the modern age and bringing more workers into the public sector ecosystem.
