FCW : March 30, 2015
THE 2015 FED 100 12 March 30, 2015 FCW.COM THE2015FEDERAL100 100 REASONS FOR POSITIVE THINKING After several years of cutbacks, a steady stream of agency-bashing and some very high-profile IT flameouts, it feels like tempting fate to say this but: Things are looking up. The challenges of 2014 were no walk in the park, of course — and the near shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security just last month made clear that agency funding might never be free of drama again. Increasingly, though, the challenges seem to be substantive and surmountable rather than an endless scramble to hold dysfunction at bay. Cybersecurity threats might be multiplying, but the tools to counter them — and agencies’ collaborative use of those tools — are rapidly improving as well. Moves to the cloud that only recently seemed risky are now so straightforward that they barely merit attention. Congress passed real IT acquisition reform, updated the Federal Information Security Management Act and mandated data transparency standards that will resonate far beyond agency spending information. Feds even got a raise — albeit small and long overdue. The women and men profiled in these pages were chosen for the work they did in 2014, and their accomplishments run the gamut. We have change agents, economizers, innovators and managers who seem to work magic with IT at government scale. Read through the short summaries, and we think you’ll agree: Some great things were achieved last year. The power of the individual informs FCW’s coverage every day, but with this issue, we take time to really spotlight and celebrate it. Federal IT would not function without people like this year’s Federal 100. And although the larger trends of 2014 might be debatable as harbingers of happiness, reading these 100 reminders of what one person can accomplish makes it hard to do anything but smile. — T he editors 0330fcw_012.indd 12 3/9/15 2:51 PM
