Susan Shuryn Michael Simcock Nick Sinai Param Soni 44 March 30, 2014 FCW.COM Susan Shuryn Ef ciencies Branch Lead Department of the Navy IT TRANSPARENCY. Shuryn is credited with de- veloping a holistic way for the Navy to achieve some $2 billion in savings and maintain an agencywide fo- cus on strategic goals and objectives. She was instru- mental in developing and launching an IT dashboard that tracks ef ciencies and cost savings --- a tool Navy CIO Terry Halvorsen said provides transpar- ency critical to ensuring mission success. "There was no model to follow since there had never been a precedent in which $2 billion was taken from the IT budget, " Halvorsen said. "Ms. Shuryn's team forged a way forward for others to follow. " Michael Simcock Chief Data Architect Department of Homeland Security DATA HERDER. Where one IT manager sees a trunk and another sees big ears, Simcock visualizes the entire data elephant --- and knows how to herd it. In his data architecture and governance role, he keeps track of massive amounts of DHS information, tames it and puts it to work. He supported development of Version 3.0 of the National Information Exchange Model and backed the Digital Government Strat- egy and Open Data Policy. His admirers say Simcock has a talent for translat- ing esoteric concepts into understandable language and separating IT fads from truly useful technology. Nick Sinai Deputy Chief Technology Of cer Of ce of Science and Technology Policy Executive Of ce of the President MAXIMIZING OPEN DATA'S REACH. As the lead for the Obama administration's open-data initiative, Sinai provided guidance for federal agen- cies on releasing data to the public and ful lling the initiative's other directives. He was also the global link between the U.S. and other governments on open data, extending the reach of U.S. policies and incorporating best practices from abroad. Just as signi cantly, Sinai steered civilian agencies through the challenges of incorporating the open- data policy into their daily routines. Thomas Somers Chief, Trojan Branch Communications- Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate Department of the Army SHARING INTELL. The Army's Trojan program provides satellite commu- nications that are essential to information sharing and intelligence, and Somers is personally dedicated to ensuring that soldiers have the best capabilities as quickly as possible. He started out as an engineer and ascended the ranks by integrating the latest technology into satellite communications, making signals intelligence more nimble and reducing the program's footprint. In 2013, Somers led the introduc- tion of a new backpack that allows a soldier to set up a network in 15 minutes. Param Soni Chief Architect Environmental Protection Agency PORTFOLIOSTAT LEADER. Soni formal- ized EPA's investment analysis by creating a three-year strategic plan and incorporating reviews into the agency's System Life Cycle Management Policy. He maintained detailed spreadsheets on all EPA systems that in- cluded information about their business processes, alternative analysis, risk management, applications, IT standards and security. He also worked with the grants management team to identify 30 percent of infrastructure costs that could be consolidated. His commitment to bringing together government and industry is further under- scored by his voluntary position as secretary of the Association for Federal Information Resources Management.
