FCW : April 15, 2015
Sonny Hashmi is stepping down as CIO at the General Services Administration to become man- aging director for government at cloud collaboration firm Box. He recently spoke with FCW Editor- in-Chief Troy K. Schneider about his time at GSA and the govern- ment’s progress on key initiatives. This interview has been edited for length and clarity. First off, congratulations on the new job. Tell us a bit about it. Thank you. I’m very excited to be joining Box, though obviously it’s a bittersweet thing for me because I really will miss GSA. At Box, I’m going to be starting up the Box for Government vertical. My whole career — either in the private-sector side or the public- sector side — has been focused on improving the health and wellness of government IT. Through this ini- tiative and through this opportunity, I’m hoping to continue down that track. I’m very excited about it — not only to build the brand and aware- ness of Box, but also to really continue the discussion around adoption of cloud and mobility into the federal government. That’s something I’ve been doing at GSA for some time now. GSA has often been tasked with making the White House’s IT initia- tives happen. Is there an area where you are proudest of the progress that’s been made in the past three or four years? If you think about four years ago, the discussion in the government IT circles was: Is this cloud thing going to stick around? Is it something that could ever work for government? I’m not sure how this works — is it mature? And if you fast-forward to today, the conversation has changed dra- matically to: How do we adopt it? How do we scale it? How do we get the most value out of it? That’s a completely different discussion. I’m also very proud of the work GSA has done in the area of mobility. Our new headquarters is a complete- ly different model for how organiza- tions run and operate. It’s a sharing economy model, it’s a democratized field space model — and a lot of Sonny Hashmi: The exit interview GSA’s CIO talks about advice for new hires, key cloud takeaways and areas still in need of improvement Fir stPerson April 15, 2015 FCW.COM 31 ZAIDHAMID 0415fcw_031-032.indd 31 3/24/15 1:34 PM
