Sun News in Review: Bill Vass on First Federal CIO Appointment
By chhandomay on Mar 09, 2009
week President Obama appointed Vivek Kundra as the federal government's
first CIO with a clear mandate for him: "As chief information officer,
[Kundra] will play a key role in making sure our government is running
in the most secure, open, and efficient way possible."
This morning I sat down with Bill Vaas, President of Sun Microsystems Federal, to discuss the significant of this announcement. He and Scott recently met with President Obama's technology team with more meetings in the offing. Bill shares what he thinks about the role open source will play with the new administration, what the relationship will be between the new CIO and the to-be-named-soon CTO of federal government, what all these mean for Sun Microsystems Federal and a lot more in this segment of Sun News Radio.
You can listen to Bill's perspectives below.
