VanRoekel: Mobile Roadmap Will Focus on Streamlining Acquisitions
January 13, 2012
A cross-government team already has put together the rough draft of a government mobile roadmap that will streamline how agencies buy smartphones and tablets and how they use those devices to accomplish internal goals and communicate with the public, federal Chief Information Officer Steven VanRoekel said at a luncheon Friday.
VanRoekel announced plans to develop that roadmap on the sidelines of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Wednesday.
The first phase of the strategy is a 10-day online dialogue on federal mobility goals. The cross-government team will pull information from that dialogue into its final roadmap, which is due out in early March, according to VanRoekel. He plans to begin launching major initiatives four months later, he said.
