re: Obama's IT Transformation Is A Work In Progress
I applaud Obama for taking steps to transform government IT through the initiatives you describe, John. In my experience of consulting at high-profile IT transformation projects, it's not just about developing a smart plan that involves IT, it's mostly about knowing how to get the support of all involved--and to maintain that support. Transformation is never easy and it will always be met with resistance and suspicion. The success of transformation projects depends on your skill as a motivator and a leader--and transformation in governments is never easy.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
