Sonny Bhagowalia, acting assistant commissioner for information and technology and chief information officer at the Customs and Border Protection (CBP), said managed data centers still play a key role in supporting the operations of CBP, FedScoop reported Wednesday.
“The mission is so big in terms of what we do in safeguarding America and data centers play a very big role in terms of what we provide in high value assets,” Bhagowalia said in a video interview underwritten by Dell Technologies.
He said CBP has implemented a hybrid approach that uses cloud and on-premises data centers as it advances information technology modernization and carry out its mission. He also talked about the agency’s migration of some applications to the cloud.
Bhagowalia joined Mahtab Emdadi, a regional sales director at Dell Technologies, during the video interview to discuss other tech trends and factors CIOs should consider as they pursue data center modernization.
