Next-Generation CIOs: The Future of IT in Government
The immersion of technology in all areas of government is changing the role of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) at its very core. To be successful, CIOs must play a multidimensional leadership role that requires them to fully understand the business needs in the new government environment.

CIOs work strategically with other government leaders to adapt and transform their enterprises through budget controls, new procurement strategies and the implementation of the latest cloud, mobile and analytical technologies. CIOs are also shifting their focus from how they use and manage shared services to developing new tactics for keeping their networks safe and secure.

Balancing these priorities requires transitioning the mindset and workflow of the entire workforce to support the modern role of the IT organization.

Join AFCEA Bethesda on September 10 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center for “Next-Generation CIOs: The Future of IT in Government,” an executive breakfast discussion on how next generation CIOs will adapt their organizations to help fellow government leaders drive transformation.

Panelists will discuss:
  • New IT challenges CIOs face – insight into mobile, cloud, analytics, security, infrastructure, end-user computing, etc.
  • Development of future acquisition strategies and critique of their effectiveness
  • Success stories in establishing relationships with program and/or executives to propel missions forward
  • Maximizing ROI of strategic sourcing, cloud and the mobile workforce
  • How the CIO role will evolve in the next five years
  • Initiatives that could transform into the hallmark of IT over the next two to three years
