Jim Garrettson, founder and CEO of Executive Mosaic, presented Steve Harris, senior vice president and general manager of Dell EMC Federal, with his fourth consecutive Wash100 Award on Thursday.
Executive Mosaic recognizes Harris for leading the company’s efforts to help federal clients modernize IT infrastructure, improve cybersecurity posture and transition to cloud-based platforms. We are thrilled to present the most coveted award in government contracting to Harris.
Harris has served in his current role since 2014. His focus is to enable Dell’s government customers to use IT as an effective and efficient tool that helps them better accomplish their mission.
Harris is a veteran Dell employee with over 21 years of experience in a wide range of positions with the company. He’s now using his years of public insight to help the Dell Federal team continue its close partnership with its government customers to meet their needs through IT and IT services.
To boost the government’s digital transformation, Harris suggested that federal agencies utilize automation to modernize or maintain legacy information technology systems. Harris wrote an opinion piece stating that automation could help agencies refocus resources to other government tasks.
Harris also emphasized that the government needs a multi-year strategic plan to guide how agencies prioritize applications and workloads. He noted that agencies should transform how employees engage with technological platforms to improve their cybersecurity posture and establish their IT infrastructure based on a secure-by-design method.
In addition, Harris graduated from the State University of New York College at Geneseo in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Management Science.
