FCW : October 15, 2012
Building on a quarter-century of providing federal technology executives with the news and insights they need A new FCW, inside and out Welcome to the new FCW. You can quickly see the new logo, design and layout, but the improvements are more than just skin deep. Recognizing the changes that federal executives face in the complex world of government technology, we are sharpening FCW's editorial focus as well --- going deep into the policy, people, legislation and management insights needed to navigate that labyrinth. Technology remains a cornerstone for building new and successful programs, of course, but it is one part of a much more complicated picture. (Bob Woods describes some of the factors a federal executive must consider in his commentary on Page 14.) And nowhere is that new reality more apparent than in the of ce of the CIO, a position created for agencies by the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996. In the years since, the dynamics of government have changed, and agency CIOs continue to struggle for a seat at the proverbial management table and to shake the label of chief geek. FCW looks in-depth at the challenges facing today's CIO in the feature story beginning on Page 18, while other updates on "the state of the CIO" are scattered throughout this issue. Our innovations are not limited to the print world. We have a redesigned FCW.com going live on Oct. 15, and new tablet and mobile versions later in the month. And note the icon on this page, from Layar.com, which allows us to connect digital content to the printed page --- interview clips, Hill testimony or, in this case, a short video about the new FCW. We've even changed our name --- for reasons I explain in the video. Try it out, and please let us know what you think. This is an exciting time to be in this market. We look forward to growing and serving federal technology executives for another 25 years. --- ANNE ARMSTRONG firstname.lastname@example.org Editor'sNote CHIEF CONTENT OFFICER EXECUTIVE EDITOR Anne Armstrong Troy K.
