Chief Technology Officer, Unisys
1. IT infrastructure consolidation: Cloud computing, virtualization of IT resources, green computing
2. Transparency of government data and technologies that enable it, such as service-oriented architecture, Web 2.0, etc.
This would include new vehicles for transparency and accountability as well as refocused attention on citizen participation in government (along lines of IT as a direct interaction mechanism for the just-concluded presidential campaign). This presumably would include 21st century collaboration technologies previously not adopted widely in government but popular for professional and social networking.
3. Improved communication/collaboration with citizens/interest groups, and technologies that enable this, such as social networking, YouTube-style video publishing, blogs, wikis, etc.
End-user services enablement and collaboration includes integration of tools and technology to empower workers, such as e-mail, v-mail, knowledge sharing portals, productivity tools, virtualized desktop, mobile device applications, anytime/anywhere network access, etc.
