End-to-end digital

The General Services Administration wants to become a “true, end-to-end digital entity," Chief Information Officer David Shive said Wednesday. To do so, the agency is taking the digital assets and tools it has created and ensuring they’re always operating as efficiently as possible by reengineering agency business processes. “We’ve digitized the vast majority of the intellectual assets of GSA, but a lot of those are first-gen,” Shive said. “They’re basically digital copies of existing paper processes.” And the agency is ready for the next step, he said.

Messy data practices should be left behind, she said, with many of the legacy systems and on-premises data centers the military needs to ditch. Jackson has this too.
