Cameron Chehreh, chief technology officer at Dell’s federal business, has said the structure of legacy software for government off-the-shelf products is the main challenge facing the government’s information technology modernization efforts in an interview with Signal Magazine posted Tuesday.

Chehreh told the publication the use of virtualization technology, software-defined networking and virtualized data centers as well as gradual modernization efforts could help to address risks.

A Dell-sponsored survey of 100 federal IT leaders says 71 percent of respondents claim they run “important” applications through outdated operating systems.

Chehreh added government organizations should get their staff to support “the real imperative to modernize,” Jontz reported.
