Last week on Active Information, I wrote about the new Roadmap for Digital Government.
The drivers of the roadmap are a combination of technology advances cloud, mobile, collaboration, the need for agencies to carryout their missions at a lower cost and higher level of service, and a directive from the President:
“I want us to ask ourselves every day, how are we using technology to make a real difference in peoples lives”.
I was pleased to see the upfront emphasis on taking a thinking, rather than code, mindset:
“Building for the future requires us to think beyond programmatic lines. To keep up with the pace of change in technology, we need to securely architect our systems for interoperability and openness from conception.”
In my post, I focus on the Information-Centricity aspect, and offer some tips for success.
