Commerce Department Invests in Technologies Vital to Hybrid Work Setup

The Department of Commerce is ensuring its workforce has the necessary technology to do their job in a hybrid work environment.

In a recent discussion with FedScoop, Andre Mendes, chief information officer at the Commerce Department, said the department has been lucky to have invested significantly in cloud computing and it continues to make it the standard environment, with cloud migrations contributing to a more uniform, hybrid-compatible infrastructure.

The department has started offering a hybrid work set up to retain and attract talent while also ensuring continuity of operations amid calamities and crises, FedScoop reported.

Kurt Steege, chief technology officer at ThunderCat, said the Department of Commerce did a great job in understanding every aspect of a hybrid work environment, including having a better understanding of the information being accessed and where it is housed.

Since the pandemic, the government has turned to a hybrid work setup to remain operational. Booz Allen Hamilton executives said in a 2021 opinion piece published by Defense News that the DOD must adopt virtual workplaces due to the workforce’s changing preferences. They insisted that the Defense Department needs to invest in technology that allow a more flexible, virtual future amid threats from China and other adversaries.
