PSC CIO Survey: Accelerating & Managing IT Modernization

PSC CIO Survey: Accelerating & Managing IT Modernization

Please join PSC President & CEO David Berteau and Attain Partner and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Simon Szykman for a webinar-based overview of PSC’s newly released 2020 Federal CIO Survey: Accelerating and Managing IT Modernization During Uncertainty, followed by a Q&A session with Renee Wynn, former Chief Information Officer (CIO) for NASA. In partnership with Attain, PSC conducted interviews with federal CIOs during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic to gain an understanding of federal IT leaders’ top challenges and priorities, the forces that are driving change in government IT, and trends that reflect shifts in how agencies are developing and delivering tools. This presentation will highlight both external and internal factors impacting federal IT modernization that the incoming Biden Administration will have to tackle.
