TYSONS CORNER, VA April 29, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — GovCon Executive reported Tuesday on a new Deloitte report that predicts a more active role for federal chief information officers of the future when it comes to agency-wide integration and information technology management.
Mark White, chief technology officer and principal at Deloitte Global Consulting, told FedScoop that IT pervasiveness in all units of the agency will soon require a CIO that would act as convener, coordinator and integrator.
“It’s a unique opportunity and one that can be challenging in the public sector where the gravitas or significance of a role is sometimes measured by the amount of budget and the amount of people it oversees and coordinates, ” White said.
“The temptation might be to feel threatened, but the recommendation is to obviously step up and play the coordination role.”
