JOEL D. JACOBS JAY JOHNSON JON JOHNSON CAROL ANN JONES JOHN R. KAHLER JR. 32 March 30, 2015 FCW.COM Joel D. Jacobs Vice President and CIO The MITRE Corp. Sharing success. In 2014, Jacobs saw a need for improvement and an opportunity to capitalize on emerging technology to implement IT solutions before challenges could become problems. To that end, he helped MITRE’s customers by increasing understanding of their strategic require- ments and creating new processes for en- gaging with them. He used crowdsourcing tools to triple the number of research ideas and increase MITRE’s social media pres- ence by 100 percent. Jacobs works with federally funded research and develop- ment centers and nonprofit organizations to help them achieve the same success. Jay Johnson Chief of the Analysis and Integration Division Air Force Safety Center Department of the Air Force Migration maestro. Johnson and his team were the brains behind the Air Force Safety Automated System’s successful migration to Amazon Web Services — an effort that received the Defense Depart- ment’s first cloud authority to operate and helped trim subsequent approval process- es from 18 months to six weeks. AFSAS is considered to be the most mature safety reporting and surveillance tool in DOD and is widely used by other agencies. In the process, Johnson effectively created the road map for cloud acquisition at DOD. Jon Johnson Team Leader for Enterprise Mobility Federal Acquisition Service Government Services Administration Mr. Mobility. Along with his leadership of the Enterprise Mobility Program, which includes GSA’s Wireless Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative and the Managed Mobil- ity Program, Johnson was a key contribu- tor to the Mobile Technology Tiger Team that developed tougher security require- ments. He also led the effort to complete Action Item 5.5 on President Barack Obama’s Digital Government Strategy, which required GSA to set up a govern- mentwide mobile device management program. Through those labors and more, he has become a sought-after expert in how to cope with the flood of new wireless technologies and services. Carol Ann Jones Program Analyst National Leadership Command Capabilities Management Office Defense Department The linchpin. Jones defies the belief that the administration and Congress can’t work together. She has been at the fore- front of a congressionally mandated review of the military’s command, control and communications system, which includes nuclear capabilities. She has led teams in charge of improving the cryptography and information assurance behind the system by working with allies, Congress and other agencies. Jones has also brought advances in interoperable cryptography to senior government officials. One colleague de- scribes her as the linchpin for DOD’s move to more IP-based command and control. John R. Kahler Jr. Chief of the Joint On-demand Interoperability Network Communications-Electronics Command Department of the Army The JUICE man. Kahler helps run the Joint Users Interoperability Communica- tions Exercise, an annual test of systems integration and network operations by U.S. agencies and allies. His quest for interoperability is motivated by the com- munications difficulties first responders experienced during the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and though he has been involved in the exercise for years, his efforts led to a breakthrough in 2014: It was the first time participants from the Department of Home- land Security, the U.S. military and state emergency operations centers were able to communicate seamlessly.
