Government agencies fall into varying levels of digital governance maturity. The more mature agencies tend to have better access to data in order to more efficiently serve citizens and service members. Access to organized data provides opportunities to improve the citizen experience by developing end-to-end digital services that cut across agency data silos. For this reason, all federal agencies are undertaking efforts to modernize their IT infrastructure and supporting systems. For example, it's now possible to digitally connect government agencies and their employees with services like education programs or to local suppliers, businesses and prospective employees. Agencies can also ensure that citizen information and personnel records are secured, organized, available and accessible to every citizen, all of the time.

In December, 2014, congress passed the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act, or FITARA. This legislation requires federal agencies to submit quarterly progress reports on the agency's strategy for consolidating and optimizing data centers including planned cost savings. Each quarter, federal agencies receive a scorecard on their progress, which impacts the amount of funding they receive. This is why it is more important than ever that agencies have a strong data strategy in place.
