Session description

A major challenge in health and human services modernization is to balance the modernization initiative with management of existing systems. Modernization happens in phases; i.e., only a few programs move over from the legacy system to the new system in each phase. With recent guidance from the CMS on modular development and procurement, multi-pronged, phased implementations and operations will soon become the norm. How can agencies manage these multiple systems - some legacy, some new in production, and some in implementation? What are the implications of agile development for multiple systems in transition, both in procurement and development? What are the applications of the Gartner’s BiModal IT to this situation? Join the roundtable for practical insights from industry and government experts.
