Federal CIOs Drive High Performance in Information Technology

The role of the chief information officer continues to evolve under the Obama administration. Today's federal CIOs are expected not only to drive efficiency, transparency and strengthen information and network security, but also to implement the best technologies and practices to establish and maintain relationships with citizens.

CIOs face additional pressure from the conflicting objectives of their mission. Among them: How does one balance the demand for immediate, transparent access to information while maintaining security and privacy? How does one reduce IT spending while improving services? What is the role of the CIO within the agency and how does one operationalize it?

We'll ask today's panelists to share their views on how to meet these challenges as well as their priorities for the next year. We'll also ask them to share how they are meeting the demands of both the public and the Obama administration while serving as agents of change.

Army band on deck!

Army rocks Navy! No, not the fall military academy football classic. For the first time in history, a U.S. Army band -- the 34th Infantry Division Band -- performed a concert on the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Decatur. Members of the Army band had to overcome some hardship to make the gig, when the small boat taking them to Decatur broke down. They say it was worth it, though, because the Decatur sailors often miss USO tours.
