Government agencies reduce processing delays and increase operational efficiencies with OpCon

In 2016, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) concluded that many of U.S. federal agencies have a need to address aging legacy systems in their various IT departments. This conclusion was made after looking at increasing operations and maintenance (O&M) investments from seven years prior, which left a fiscal resulted in a $7.3 billion decline from fiscal years in development, modernization, and enhancement activities. The study identified numerous O&M investments that the GAO considered medium to high-risk. For example, the Department of Defense uses 8-inch floppy disks in a legacy system that coordinates the operational functions of the nation’s nuclear forces. For government agencies facing these types aging legacy issues and overwhelming O&M expenditures, SMA Solutions and OpCon can provide help through one of two paths, optimizing legacy systems with workload automation or automating the modernization project and future environment.
