Inside a big cloud decision at the VA

The Department of Veterans Affairs shunned the typical advice to smart small when migrating to the cloud. Out of necessity, the department started out by going big and moving its Veterans Benefits Management System to its enterprise cloud environment, said David Catanoso, director of VA's Enterprise Cloud Management Office. "Most people, when you start your cloud migration journey, will tell you to start small, gain experience," Catanoso said. "We took a completely different approach moving one of our biggest, most critical systems to the cloud very early." Catanoso shared VA's cloud migration story Wednesday at the 2019 Amazon Web Services re:Invent conference in Las Vegas. Billy Mitchell has more from the conference.

Some encouraging numbers for the Civic Digital Fellowship

New data shows that Coding it Forward’s Civic Digital Fellowship is working. That is, it can have a lasting impact on participants’ career trajectories and, by the same token, the future tech workforce of the federal government. A survey of summer 2019’s 55 participants, administered both before and after the program by the Partnership for Public Service, shows fellows walk away from the 10-week program more likely than before to seek a job in the federal government. Results like these are exciting for the program because they bolster the fellowship’s big picture: giving the government — which currently struggles with an aging IT workforce — a “best practice” example on how to attract young tech talent. Tajha Chappellet-Lanier has more from the survey.
