I can't see how there won't be further cuts, but what I like about VanRoekel is that he has a lot of energy. I believe he's going to see all of these through and be successful.

re: Federal CIO Outlines Next Steps
A few takeaways from this piece: 1) The "big ideas" (cloud first, shared first, data center consolidation, mobility, PortfolioStat, Digital Gov Strategy, cyber) are all multi-year initiatives, and it will take time before we know just how successful they are, or aren't. 2) At the same time those projects are underway, the federal IT budget has stayed flat. That alone is a success story, unless you hold the opinion that federal IT spending should actually be cut. 3) If federal IT funding sees further cuts AND VanRoekel can see these initiatives to fruition, that would be something to crow about.

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
