Unisys issued an announcement today regarding its new Application Modernization Platform as a Service (AMPSSM) offering, a subscription-based service to help federal government agencies reduce the cost, complexity, risk, and time involved in modernizing their legacy software applications.

A recent study by MeriTalk and the Unisys Center for Innovation in Government found that four out of five C-level federal IT executives said mission-critical government capabilities are at risk if agencies do not modernize legacy applications.

The study, “Federal Application Modernization Road Trip: Express Lane or Detour Ahead?,” looked at the progress of the federal government in modernizing its business applications and the cost and risk of maintaining outdated and redundant systems.

A panel of Unisys executives convened to record a podcast that dives into the MeriTalk study findings and shares some actionable insights that will help federal IT leaders optimize their modernization efforts and their budgets using AMPS. Panelists included:

  • Mark Cohn, CTO of Unisys Federal Systems
  • Peter Gallagher, Unisys Federal Systems Partner
  • Edward Wakelam, Vice President of Application Modernization and Outsourcing Solutions
  • Andrew Gordon, Director of Application Modernization and SOA service line for Unisys Federal
