ITAC today hosted Corinne Charette, Chief Information Officer for Canada, at the first of a new series of meetings with government.
Ms. Charette, who is responsible for leading policy development and enablement, management oversight and community capacity development for six policy areas (information management, information technology, identity management and security, access to information, privacy, and internal and external services) provided much food for thought during her talk.
Not only did she address the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in software acquisition, she also shared with the audience some of the key elements of the Government of Canada’s IT modernization strategy which is founded on the three pillars: standardization, consolidation and re-engineering.
The ITAC series of meetings with government is designed to provide ITAC members and other interested individuals with an opportunity to attend meetings with government on a more informal basis. This series is part of a larger initiative by ITAC to deliver more value to its community. For further information, please contact Linda Oliver - email@example.com.
