FCW : August 15, 2013
Editor'sNote 6 August 15, 2013 FCW.COM When it comes to federal IT, FCW has always held that individuals are the ones who make real change possible. So from the Federal 100 to our Rising Stars (look for an announcement of this year s winners in September!) to the day- to-day coverage of women and men making it happen, almost every issue of this magazine could be considered a people issue. In that sense, this edition is no different. Yet much of the coverage in the pages that follow focuses not on the individual but on "people" as a management challenge. Our two main features, for example, explore what it takes to identify and authenticate all those individuals. On Page 16, Mark Rockwell reports on the Department of Homeland Security s long-running efforts to bring biometrics to identity management. And on Page 20, John Moore explores the migration of ID management to the cloud. Workforce expert Robert Lavigna, meanwhile, has written an entire book on the importance of engaging government employees --- a resource that Natalie Lauri reviews on Page 30. And on Page 24, David Wennergren --- the former Navy Department CIO, longtime CIO Council vice chairman and most recently Defense Department assistant deputy chief management of cer who retired earlier this month --- shares his thoughts on the importance of building and empowering talented teams. Wennergren, it s worth noting, has an ID management connection as well. He was a champion of DOD s Common Access Card, a departmentwide solution that was the precursor to standards now being advanced by DHS and other agencies. Such systems --- whether smart cards with iris scans or employee-motivation programs --- can become ends unto themselves if leaders are not careful. But as Wennergren noted in his interview with FCW, they are ultimately just tools to use in service of what is really important: people. "How can you encourage them and give them the structures that they need to be successful in their job?" he asked. "And how are we going to attract the next generation and give them an environment where they ll be able to work and thrive?" Those are critical questions, and ones that FCW will absolutely keep covering. --- TROY K.
