Steve Harris, vice president and general manager of Dell‘s federal systems unit, has said he believes the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act will create momentum in agencies’ efforts to update their information technology systems, Fedscoop reported Wednesday.

“FITARA provides for the oversight and but more importantly, it provides the fundamental changes that can lead to the desired outcome,” Harris was quoted as saying.

Greg Otto reports that federal agencies have started to launch programs to replace legacy IT systems with modern technology intended to help agencies deliver public services.

Some government technology analysts believe 2016 will see agencies build on those initiatives to meet the Obama administration’s IT goals, Otto added.
