In response to citizens’ demands for fast, reliable, secure services, the U.S. government has increasingly adopted the use of open source software. Open source promises increased security, cost savings and flexibility.

Meet Booz Allen Vice President Bryce Pippert, who works with government clients to implement cutting-edge technology. Bryce maintains that open source also empowers government workers to build innovative solutions more quickly.

“We’re seeing open source taking off in government, and we see a lot of benefits like cost savings and eliminating redundancies,” he said. “But we’re also finding that open source allows us to empower people: they feel like they can create value and build on things that already exist rather than recreating the same things over and over again.”

Watch as Bryce talks in detail with CyberScoop Managing Editor Greg Otto about how open source is changing the federal government.
