Finding a Better Use for $35.7 Billion: How Government is Breaking Free of Expensive Legacy Systems

June 14
Duration: 1 hour

$35.7 billion. That’s what government agencies spend every year to support antiquated, cumbersome, and expensive legacy systems. And it gets worse: that figure represents half of their total IT budgets, which is a staggering commitment. According to a research report from the Center for Digital Government, nearly 50% of systems are in need of modernization, since many are 20 to 30 years old. In today’s budget-constrained world, do we have to just accept this lackluster performance?

If the technologists are right, there just might be a better way.
The State of Nebraska and Cornell University are two bright examples of the path forward. Nebraska found a simpler, much more affordable way to manage HR processes and its 18,000 employees across 80 agencies. One official said “In times where economics play a big part in what you do … we’re always looking for ways to lower our cost and get a better product.” Likewise, Cornell University succeeded in cutting costs in IT by introducing a new model for HR self-service to its 14,500 employees. A Cornell official said, “We want people to spend less time collecting and more time considering data.”
