New York City's CIO got a quick start when she came on-board in January 2010. Carole Post conducted a review of the city's IT operations, followed by aggressive plans to consolidate its data centers, lower costs by $100 million over five years, reduce energy consumption, and improve IT service quality.

By mid-2010, Post's project list had grown to include an upgrade to the city's network and establishment of a mobile application platform. In October, Post and Mayor Michael Bloomberg laid out the city's IT strategy more broadly, giving the CIO increased power and signing a deal with Microsoft that will gradually move New York to cloud services. In support of open government, Post has advocated the public release of data sets and the NYC BigApps 2.0 development competition. Before becoming CIO, Post was director of agency services in the mayor's office, where she oversaw the performance of city agencies and led the development of a performance reporting system and a stimulus-tracking tool.
