GovernmentCIO: USPTO Unveils Modernization Strategy and Future of IT Procurement

“The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s new IT modernization strategy includes a three-part strategy that stabilizes its current IT system, modernizes systems and moves operations toward an Agile and DevSecOps framework, officials said Thursday.”

“The agency’s current IT system is tightly coupled, making it difficult to maintain or change without impacting a cascade of IT assets, said CIO Jamie Holcombe and Deputy CIO Debbie Stephens. Their office is currently in the first step of its new strategy, with the next two parts on the horizon.”

“The system modernization component of the strategy looks to move USPTO’s IT architecture to a hybrid cloud environment. From there, the CIO’s office will move away from the monolithic, centralized and internally hosted legacy systems toward a microservice-based, decoupled, API-forward and cloud-native environment, said Office of Application Engineering and Development Director Stephan Mitchev…”

“Security will be key in the modernization effort and Holcombe intends the modernized architecture to adopt a zero-trust approach. Holcombe said he also wants to automate authorizations to operate with robotic process automation.” Read the full article here.
