While he served as the Chief Information Officer of the United States government, Vivek Kundra was charged with managing IT’s role within the government. Kundra, who accepted the job in January 2009 when President Barack Obama took office, explained to World Innovation Forum attendees, how he became responsible for managing government technology spending that totaled $80 billion.
Kundra said there was a lack of innovation happening “in the name of security. The focus was primarily inward, not on citizens and citizen services and how you transform them. The shift to cloud computing actually enabled that transformation.”
