New CEO for US – New CTO coming soon?


As the new president puts together his “top table,” one of the voices is likely to be a CTO. BusinessWeek reports that the two top choices are Padmasree Warrior of Cisco and Vivek Kundra of Washington, DC’s government.

Like insurance, government is largely an information business, and one that is hamstrung by legacy technologies that inhibit the adoption of new practices. Here’s hoping the new CTO has the President’s full support to drive change through a conservative “business” (civil service) organization. I’m guessing that, like in insurance, business user resistance will be the biggest issue!
