TYSONS CORNER, VA, September 10, 2019 — David Egts, chief technologist for Red Hat’s (NYSE: RHT) North American public sector division, advises federal agencies to adopt commercial open source software to help advance their information technology modernization efforts, GovCon Wire reported Aug. 23.
He said Aug. 22 in an FCW thought piece that agencies should seek software vendors that are well-versed in open source technology as well as government security certifications in order to successfully modernize federal IT processes.
“Agencies must have open organizational processes that enable people to grow,” wrote Egts. “Open-source technology can provide an underlying infrastructure that helps them keep stepping toward the future.”
