In case you missed it, here’s the federal IT news we covered in our e-magazine last Friday:
Ted Davies last week stepped up as chief executive of Altamira Technologies Corporation a few days after retiring from his position as president of the Federal Systems business unit at Unisys. Davies said he looks forward to building on the company’s “incredible foundation of talent, technology and solutions.”
We also heard from Rory Schultz, who is the deputy chief information for Food and Nutrition Service at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Schultz opened up to WashingtonExec about the agency’s data center consolidation process — a project Schultz and the organization took on in 2010 at the behest of former U.S. CIO Vivek Kundra. Schultz collects old technology, deems himself a beer enthusiast and enjoys the outdoors.
One of the final weeks in July also drew roughly 80 executives to Maggiano’s for WashingtonExec’s July happy hour sponsored by custom-suit clothier — The Tailored Man. Check out our e-magazine and photos on our Facebook page to see who attended the event.
JD Kathuria last week provided us with the latest in his new RollCall column aimed at providing a running map of who’s where, professionally, in the Greater Washington area. Read last week’s column in the e-magazine.
WashingtonExec last week also caught up with John Landwehr, the public sector CTO at Adobe. Check out the e-magazine to see the technology guru’s take on mobile deployment within government, the growing adoption of mobile IT, cloud adoption and Adobe’s path to FedRamp certification.
Three federal contract awards announced last week include: Mindcubed’s prime deal to develop CJCC’s strategic IT plan, ASM Research’s $162 million win to modernize the electronic health records system at the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs and Karsun Solutions’ partnership with Alliant Solutions for a GSA GWAC vehicle. Read about them in the e-magazine.
Finally, be sure to mark your calendars for two events that will be spotlighting technology in the coming weeks: the ATARC Federal Mobile Computing Summit is set for Aug 19 and 20 and Nextgov’s Technology event will take place Sept. 8 through 9.
