Top Tech Execs to Head NEW PSC Tech Council Committees
Arlington, VA, January 15, 2015—The Professional Services Council’s Technology Council created six new committees and working groups led by top tech leaders, the association announced today.
“The PSC Tech Council committees and working groups will provide thought leadership and practical advice and actions on the pressing technology issues facing the government market today,” said David Wennergren, PSC’s senior vice president for technology. “We are delighted with the broad experience base and insights that this august group of individuals will bring to the challenges and opportunities ahead of us.”
The six committees and working groups are:
1. Tech Best Practices Committee, chaired by Tom Greiner (Accenture) and Max Peterson (Amazon Web Services), which will ensure that federal agencies have access to and understanding of technology best practices.
2. Cloud Computing Case Study Working Group, chaired by Max Peterson (Amazon Web Services) and Michelle Rudnicki (IBM), which will undertake a short-term project to document the value-proposition of consumption-based buying for cloud computing.
3. Tech Innovation Committee, chaired by Robin Lineberger (Deloitte) and Casey Coleman (AT&T), which will identify and champion new ideas, technologies and disruptions that will change the face of the federal technology marketplace and facilitate the sharing of commercial innovation for implementation within the federal government.
4. Tech 45 Working Group, chaired by Alan Balutis (Cisco), Dan Chenok (IBM) (ACT/IAC), and Dave McClure (Veris), which will form a broad-based coalition to deliver a substantive and transformative technology agenda for the next administration while also making recommendations on near-term legislative actions.
5. Cybersecurity Committee, chaired by Sam Visner (ICF International) and Rob Carey (CSC), which will establish a set of activities and deliverables around key cybersecurity topics facing the federal government.
6. PSC Tech 2015 Conference Chairs Anne Altman (IBM) and George Newstrom (Dell) will lead the development of the agenda for the 2015 PSC Tech Conference, to be held on April 29 at the Fairview Park Marriott.
Wennergren noted that, “Today’s technology marketplace is changing at a frenetic pace. Through the work of these committees and working groups, we will ensure that government agencies have access to the best ideas, approaches and solutions that the private sector has to offer. Together, we will help to continue to improve the delivery of effective mission results.”
