FCW : November and December 2014
30 November/December 2014 FCW.COM AcquisitionMatters EVOLVING THREATS, EVOLVING SOLUTIONS SPECIAL REPORT DLP REMAINS HIGH ON THE LIST OF CYBERSECURITY PRIORITIES ATTITUDES ABOUT CLOUD SECURITY CONTINUE TO SHIFT MOBILITY REQUIRES DILIGENCE ABOUT MALWARE AS CYBER THREATS EVOLVE, DO FIREWALLS STILL HAVE A ROLE? APTS: CHANGING THE SECURITY MIND-SET CYBERSECURITY: ONLINE REPORT SPONSORED BY: TOPICS INCLUDE: FCW.com/CDWGCybersecurity TO LEARN MORE, VISIT: agile federal IT market, thereby attracting new entrants to compete and bring innovation in small increments. A buzz- ing, lively, open marketplace could quickly identify new ways of delivering benefits to citizens. It would not only welcome new companies but also elicit innovation from experienced and deeply knowledgeable firms that already sell to government. Such a market would also invite greater numbers of individual contributors and groups to participate through crowdsourcing and contests designed to find solutions to tough challenges without large contractual investments. Extending strategic sourcing to commonly bought and commercially available products and services and fully using IT shared services and cloud computing could free acquisition experts to focus on higher-order work. Armed with cognitive-computing decision assistants, acquisition professionals could finally become strategic advisers and redeploy their efforts away from applying manual and siloed procurement processes, determining socioeco- nomic impacts and enforcing compliance. Instead, they could set business strategy, identify and engage capabili- ties, and invest in and shape markets to provide and co- create innovation. Those are just a few of the many examples in the AOF guide. And they are just a few of the approaches that would allow our federal workforce to focus on providing the busi- ness and benefits of government. Equipping government professionals with digital tools for making tough decisions, engaging with citizens and one another, and delivering greater value won’t be quick or easy. Such work will require different choices and alter- nate investments. But our citizens and our workforce are demanding it, and government and industry are capable of accomplishing it. By early next year, the AOF Transformation Guide will be publicly available online to spur the conversations and actions that will support the development of each agency’s vision and plans for its acquisition future. As befits the Col- laboration Age, users will be able to annotate the guide with their lessons, observations and experiences in applying it. Transforming IT procurement and all of acquisition will take a huge diversity of knowledge and contributions from every quarter — including yours. ■ Kymm McCabe is CEO of ASI Government, which pro- vides support, research, education, news and tools to more than 45,000 federal acquisition professionals at 130 organizations.
