Robert Carey, CIO, Navy
As CIO of the Department of the Navy, Rob Carey oversees IT for both the Navy and the Marine Corps, with a combined annual IT budget of $7 billion.
One of Carey's biggest projects is a new enterprise network called the Next Generation Enterprise Network, which will replace the Navy Marine Corps Intranet as that nears the end of its contract. The new network, due to launch in 2010, will be based on ITIL processes and is being designed for improved security. The Navy is continuing a move to a Web-based, service-oriented application architecture; planning a standards-based department-wide content management strategy; implementing "data at rest" encryption; and ramping up investment in wireless systems and cybersecurity.
Under Carey, the Navy Web site incorporates the latest Web 2.0 features, and the Navy was the first military branch to spell out a Web 2.0 policy. Carey was among first federal CIOs to blog, and the Navy CIO site includes RSS feeds, tagging, a list of the latest and most popular news and IT policy documents, and roadmaps of the Navy's IT strategy.
