Casey Coleman, vice president of the federal civilian business group at Unisys, has said the White House’s implementation of a federal hiring freeze may provide government agencies an opportunity to reassess priorities and advance information technology modernization efforts.

She wrote in a Federal Times article published Monday that agencies should work to “take legacy systems and hollow them out little by little, pulling out pieces of functionality and reworking business processes.“

Agencies should look at budget constraints and the hiring freeze under the new administration as an opportunity to pursue modernization work in the field of cloud, user-centric digital services and enterprise-class agile development, among other areas, according to Coleman.

She added that agencies should “rethink“ their IT approach in order to identify areas that are “in most need of modernization“ and do not “require large, upfront expenditures.“
